Just stole a...

Walked into the local gun shop for lunch.

They had a new Browning Abolt .300wm on the rack. Flipped the price tag over...hhmmm...sure seemed to be mismarked by about $200 if you ask me.

So Im checking it out...walked away...went back and looked again.

Asked the guy what was up with the price. He said "I know one thing...if you put that back on the shelf and walk out, Im changing it to what it should be".

So I brought it home with me.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

You were in the right place at the right time. I've always loved a good A-Bolt. One of the classiest bolt guns made. Is it a Medallion?

I have an A-Bolt in 270 WSM, shoots better than I can.
Good Luck with your "STOLEN" Rifle

Yes its a Medallion. Out the door for $529.

I have a few Abolts and every one of them will outshoot me. Love them 10x's more than that last 2 Rem 700's Ive acquired.

Even the Abolt Hunters are $679. Im not sure what the story is, but I love a good deal once in a while.
