All I know is my Kimber 7mm.08 rifle is one of the most accurate hunting rifles I've ever known. No offense, Big Ugly, but once you've shot one of those "flashy, high dollar toys," it's pretty hard to go back to riding in a Buick! There is a huge difference in how those toys shoot and that kind of accuracy is addicting. It's damn fun to hit what you are aiming at consistently and to know that every time you miss, it's you that screwed up, not the toy. Shooting 1/4 inch groups at 50 yards with my Anschutz is a hell of a lot more fun than plinking with a Ruger 10/22! I'm thinking my "flashy, high dollar toys" are worth every penny I paid for them. If I'd only known the difference, I'd have gotten my greedy little fingers on some when I was younger and capable of shooting the hairs off a spider's legs one by one!
