After shooting my deer with my Sako TRG 42 in .338 Lapua last year, I came to the conclusion that I needed a dedicated hunting rifle. Over the years, my thoughts have varied quite a bit as to what my ideal hunting rifle is, but now, I feel that I have come to a consensus, and this year I will purchase it. So, here is my criteria for my ideal hunting rifle, and my reasons for doing so.
As of lately, I have been doing a bit of soul searching, handgun-wise. I've been wanting to basically go to one family of pistols, with common parts, common magazines, and the same controls. This has lead me damned near all over the place, and the last three pistols I have purchased have had some form of issue out of the box. The other day I had an epiphany, from the back of my safe.
So, after getting repeatedly smacked in the face by brass after my outing with the G19, I did me a little bit of Googling to see what the cause of the problem was. After reading the same thing repeatedly, I ordered a whopping $7 in parts, broke out my Glock tool kit, and got busy.
