Karl, I do have a few shotguns. I have a nice unfired Browning SXS a couple of Ithica's, Remingtons, another inexpensive SXS, Winchester model 12, Mossberg. I don't have an over and under double, but big bucks for them, while they are some of the best looking shotguns I never had a great desire to purchase one. We'll see something will hit me and I'll say ok that one.

Any and all of the rifles mentioned would be a great addition to anyone's arsenal, and I own many of them. The Tikka 3 Lite is my newest and, without doubt, the most accurate I've ever had. It is guaranteed to shoot 1 inch groups at 100 yds. - and it does that pretty consistently, if I do my part. As for caliber - it sounds like you're thinking med to big bore - I'd go with the 300WSM. It is a great round, equalling the 300Win. Mag in velocity and energy while using LESS powder. A very efficient caliber! Anyway, you have a "dilemma" that any of us would like to have. Good luck with your choice whatever it is.

Default In your case I would look Sako instead of Tikka

I currently own a real clean Sako bolt action and I have seen alot of Tikkas shooting at the range. I agree that a Tikka is very accurate and alot of Rifle for the money. The only thing is that with 50% off you could have a Sako for the regular price of a Tikka. There is no comparison between the two in Fit/Finish. The Sako is a work of Art with a wood stock, the Tikka is a working Rifle.

I agree with Karl if a Sako is on the list jump at it with that type of discount.One other rifle i think you might like HM that i just purchased that is all wood and steel is the Thompson Icon great rifle.Good luck just trying to complicate things alittle more for you.The Tikkas are great too.
