So yesterday I went to the Charlotte gun show. About a bazillion others folks did too, once we got there it took about three hours to park and get through the door, and then to make matters worse, no Pumpkinslinger when I needed him the most, his level handedness and gun knowledge.

So I am going back and forth between three booths looking at a beautiful Browning $685, an impressive T/C Icon $465, and a Savage Axis $240 all .308 caliber. As I said it was a tad crowded, ( I think a lot of folks think Barry is gonna get re-elected ), the booths were very far apart, it's is hard enough for me to walk let alone fight my way through a massive crowd, it's hot I'm sweatin' my bu-- off and getting a little angry, mostly at myself for wanting to spend some money.

So I broke two of my rules, don't but on a whim, do your research, and don't buy rifle scope combos. I was unprepared to make a decent decision and let my pocketbook do the talking.

So I bought the Axis with a Bushnell Sharpshooter 3X9 scope.

And now that I have had time to look up the rifles on the web I wish I had bought the T/C, that was a great price on what looked like a fine rifle.

Oh well, we will see how it works.

Well I myself have never shot the Savage axis in any caliber however I have heard good things about it. It is a great entry level gun and others have made some minor upgrades and made them very nice. Savage makes a good and accurate gun out of the box so I would say that you have a good gun with the potential to be a great gun. I hope it works out for you and I would like to hear what you think of it. I am considering getting one myself as the price is good and Savage has made a name for themselves lately on there out of the box accuracy. Good luck.

The axis is going for around the 350$ mark here and I have a couple of buddies who have them and they are like tlo says good shooters right out of the box.

wtf Hey Les;I also went to a gunshow this weekend(sunday)in portland.The crowd was larger than I/ve ever seen on a sunday-even after mobombo was elected,and the dealers there said there was'nt even standing room on saturday.I think that people are running scared of this administration!All of the gun prices were thru the roof-except for some good bolt actions.And they were suprisingly good buys.Also the reloading supplies were the same price as the retail stores.But the most important thing was that the beer price went down by a quarter I think Very Happy !Now only$5.75 for a 12 oz cup Shocked Sad !

I have the Axis in 223 and just love it. Mine had a terrible trigger on it. But from what i've read this is not always the case, people are saying good things about them. I swapped mine for a rifle basix trigger.
Les for a cheap gun I think you'll be happy

its a cheaper purchase price and hopefully as the others have said be a good shooter for you. if its not quite up to your expectations it will probably still be a great brush gun that you can knock around and not feel too guilty doing it. its a good thing to have at least one mongrel in the kennels/stable.

I will tell you what, if you want talk about remorse i made a huge mistake sometime back with a gun I had purchased. I bought a Savage model 11 in .243 in 06 for what the axis is going for now. The problem I see here is that the gun is actually a lot nicer and to purchase that grade of gun now it is a lot more. Now the reason I am sick over the situation is because I took the gun out and had a lot of troubles getting it sighted in to my satisfactory. Instead of making some changes to the gun to improve it I just traded it away for a couple other guns. I was not happy with on of the others I got and sold it. Now I wish I had that .243 still as I think I could have made a great rifle for my daughter out of it.

I can't ever remember having remorse for a gun I bought. I have however experienced a lot of remorse for guns I've sold.
Enjoy your new rifle!
