I'm looking into spending some cash on a new gun. Primarily I'll be using this for squirrels (splat?).

Anyway... When I get the time I enjoy some target shooting.

I would like your opinions on brand name with scope for this...

I am a big marlin fan, and am looking at the 917 vs-cf model that is "new" on their website.

I am also looking at the BSA Sweet .17 scope to pair with this.

I have two means of obtaining any gun I want at wholesale so cost is NOT an issue here. Show me what youve got!?

Hi Projectgs...
You know...for years I have made fun of the .17, there was a fella whiteclouder who was shooting one in a pic (years back now) on another forum, and I even made fun of him for shooting such a wimpy caliber...A friend of mine was looking for one this year and I made fun of him for wanting such a "sissy" caliber...but, I kept watch out for one that I thought would meet his budget...found it...told him about it...and he changed his mind about getting one...so I thought..."What the hey"...and bought it instead...One of the best rifles I have had (not joking)...it's the Savage 110 Heavy Barrel w/acutrigger it has a Simmons 6x18x40 scope...y'all can't go wrong... :cool:

I've been thinking about getting one. My wife wants one as well so maybe I'll get it for her and "borrow" it whenever I want.
