i have a cousin that is a lefty. i need to find a cheap yet reliable deer gun for him. any ideas?
My first was a Winchester Model 94 30-30. Iron Sites, Lever action, Top eject. Completely ambidex. 100% reliable and shoots where you point it. Excellent for beginner or classic sportsman alike. Good deer round for woods or small field hunting.
I like the Remington semi-autos. They have been around for over 40 years and are quite reliable. I belive they still make a pump as well.
NEF Handi-Rifle in 308, 7mm-08, 30-06, 243, 270, or some such. Right at $200 brand new with a good 4x fixed power scope it'll be around $300.
I like the single shot stuff.
Thompson Center Encore would be first choice (because it makes such a nice muzzleloader).
Handi Rifles are nice as well.
He asked for cheap. I like the NEF muzzleloader fairly well both the one that is ML only and the barrel for the rifle frames.
Cheap means many things to many people... just put the T/C out there ;c ;c
If someone thinks a T/C is cheap they can adopt me anytime!
As long as there are people that will plunk down $2000 on a custom hunting gun... anything less than $500 is cheep IMHO. Plus the barrel swapping.
Of course... that's Handi's forte too.
Not as easy as the T/C and not nearly the variety of calibers.

SKS - #1, it's cheap. #2, I'm a leftie & after practicing with an SKS for a while, had excellent groups (for an SKS), even with inexpensive Russian ammo. #3, it's robust & will be hard to break for someone just learning the hunt.
