Re: Almost bought my first .22
Here's your rifle on the Savage website. Look near the bottom, and see that they provide links to GunsAmerica and some others, but do not offer sales directly. Just as well, in that Mfg. sites that do offer sales are normally asking the full MSRP, and the market is usually a good amount less. The difference should be enough to cover the shipping and FFL transfer costs.
If you have any problem at all with L'n'L, call Spurlocks', in Old Henderson, at 564-5668. At Spurlocks, you're just as likely to deal with the owner as with anyone, and they are definitely good ol' boys there.
Around here, we don't say "Oh shucks", or "oh man". We say Oh BAMA!!
