So I was debating getting a Mossberg 817. Went to Dicks Sporting Goods to check one out and didnt really like it. Came home with this instead. Savage 93R17 with a Simmons 3-9x40 scope. It feels much nicer then the Mossberg and def looks like its much better quality. Hopefull Ill get to shoot it Saturday if the weather doesnt turn foul.
