I've been thinking of getting a bolt action rifle. I want this!

Bolt action rifle ... I sort of like them, but there is also a less than pleasant, almost embarrassing memory associated with them.

One facet of my officer career was the handgun qualification. Included pistol, assault rifle, and the bolt-action sniper's rifle. My personal arms did not include the sniper rifle; my position didn't require that. On the qualification I used whichever rifle the armoury was providing.

On one occasion, the action of the bolt was a bit stiff. Shooting the fifty rounds resulted in tenosynovitis.

That's very pretty. I, too, like WW2 vintage hardware.

It's probably going to be just after Christmas, but it looks like I'm getting the "Collector Grade."
