Re: The Benoits are offering some nice 7600's

Yeah, it's wild. But I think I just lost a little respect for the Benoits. I lived in vermont, and loved their story.

But this just makes them as Commercial as all the others out there. Diamond grade barrels? How does that help you track a deer?

I liked the traditional lore of the Benoits....now they're just another bunch of guys trying to sell stuff.

Re: The Benoits are offering some nice 7600's

those are some of the ugliest pumpguns i've ever seen. and who is going to pay those prices? if i was to make a woods gun, i'd take a 7600 carbine and put a straight, english style stock and scaled down forearm on it and chamber it in 35 whelen with a forward mounted scout scope. kind of like a pump guidegun. those things they came up with are too gaudy and pimped out for me.

My diploma is a DD Form 214

You have a problems with Capitalism? Did you ever try to make a living off deer hunting? You have to do seminars and sell stuff. Books, videos , even guns. It's no different. My hats off to the Benoits for finding a way to make a living off it.

338-06 would be an awesome round out of a pump.
Elmer Keith would approve

Elmer Keith would approve. Very similar to his .333 OKH.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
