Another great option is the Stevens M200 made by Savage. Better than an Axis IMHO but not as pricey as the straight Savage rifles.
Please let me know when you do the next one, not in a Saturday Am, as I have Temple on Saturdays. A few of us shoot up near west Sedona off 89A. Not much room for CF rifles, but more then enough for handguns, Shotguns, and 22's. Amm2 knows me from another Board or 2. I'm also NSSF credentialed media, and I host and produce a Shooting/2A podcast. Always glad to make new friends in the shooting community. I'm sure I was here for a bit last year and recognized a few folks from other boards. The wife and I also shoot at Copper Star in camp verde( when it's too hot or too cold out. I'm also an Army Vet(12 yrs-Aviation)

Here's where you should probably get your facts a bit more straight. They had a recall election in Colorado, to get rid of the idiots that passed those draconian gun law. And hey! Guess what else! Legalized pot was a fucking VOTER INITIATIVE TOO! Dumb ass.
You can't have it both ways.
