Default Pricing on 7mm-08

About 2 years ago I bought a Savage 7mm-08 with a Bushnell 3-9x40 Elite Rifle Scope, do you guy's think it would be a good idea to sell this gun and invest in a Benelli Nova Pump Shotgun. The only reason I would do this is because I have gotten into duck/turkey/dove hunting.

Link:
The rifle- Savage Axis Rifle 19199, 7mm-08 Remington, 22 in, Camo Synthetic Stock, Black Finish - Able Ammo
Scope- Bushnell 3-9x40 Elite Rifle Scope
Shotgun- Benelli Nova Pump Shotgun BN20071, 12 Gauge, 28", 3.5" Chmbr, Synthetic Stock, Max4 HD Finish - Able Ammo

The Rifle is in great condition, just has a few scuffs from in the woods.

Thanks!

Default don't sell

If you don't have a cash flow problem I would hang on to the 7-08, It is probably the most versitile rifle on the market. You can hunt anything from moose to mice. Ha Ha. Seriously it is a great rifle and if you ever decide to go hunting you won't regret having it. Just a personal opinion

It's all about your needs. If you are gearing more to shot gunning and can't afford to purchase a shot gun then do what you have to do. Down the road you might even up-grade when you need a rifle again. The thing is, a shot gun with a rifled barrel will take deer out to 100 yds so really you can have to guns in one.

Ditto to what's stated above. The 7mm-08 is a great round that is very versatile. I'd get into duck hunting via another route, like maybe a paper route () to save money.
