You don't have to spend a fortune to get a decent rifle. Here is mine. It is a NEF Handi Rifle in .30-06. Six years ago I paid a little over $200 for it NIB with a Tasco 3-9x scope. I used that scope for a couple of years and then replaced it with a Nikon Buckmasters 3-9x40. I have now fired that rifle eleven times at deer and one time at a coyote and have put eleven deer and one coyote on the ground. The range varied from 25 to 125 yards.
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
