QUESTIONS ABOUT HOWA RIFLES

2 posts in this topic

What can anyone tell me about Howa rifles. Looking at a varmit gun, a 22-250 or 243??? Prices are reasonable, but sound like a good gun. Are they as good as the big name brands.

Howa took over the Smith and Wesson patents for the model 1500 and some others. I have a 1500 in .243 and like it for a varmint-deer gun. There are a lot of nice guns out there. They hold their resale well, so reselling if you don't like it is not a big problem. Brent

Oh yeah, also had a mod 1500 in .222 for a while, traded it for a .223 for cheaper ammo. The .222 was a nice shooting rifle, had the S&W name on it.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
