I just read the whole thing and was thinking of the Mossie the whole time. Good hunting!

Yep, made her pick it, just had to reminder her to not compromise and get what she wanted, she even did her 4473 and all.

She is very happy to have it, now to start her shooting it. Plus, she got her wood stock and blue barrel with a scope. Mossberg Patriot Youth Model in .243

This is my recommendation too. The 243 Win is a good cartridge but I don't have alot of faith in Mossberg's ability to build quality rifles. That's just a felling I have based on the construction of a few I've seen.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem
