Im wanting a new rifle. It will be mostly for deer hunting and any varmints. I am trying to decide between NEF and rossi. If anyone has any info on either one i would appreciate it. if u have owned one please tell me wat u thought of it and how it performed. Which ever one i get i was thinking a 270. If u have any suggestions or info they would be appreciated. also, what is a cheap but good in qualtiy gun?
Houston personaly I would like to see you buy the NEF. I don't own one but theres a few folks around hear that lov'em.
I toyed with the idea of buying one in 35 Whelen not long ago.
You've got 3 models to choose from the Handi- Rifle Wood/Blued model # SB2-270 or the......
Handi- Stainless/Synthetic model #SB2-2S7 and the Handi-Synthectic/ Blued model
Call Wal-Mart's sporting goods dept. and ask them to look up the price(s) in there SPECIAL ORDER BOOK for the one's your interested in and then have them call there warehouse to see if they have it in stock...Get the price for the gun and shop with it or buy it from Wally World. Good Luck feller...A.H
I think i have decided on the NEF. I would like to here some more about what people thought about them. please if u have had one or own one let me know how performs and shoots. What caliber would you recommend for whitetail hunting in tennessee?
I would like to add to my last post. I done have a 30-30. I mostly hunt in the woods. but sometimes i hunt in a road in the woods, my longest shot would probably be around 120 yards. I was wanting a 270 but im open to any suggestions. Is a 270 a good brush gun? Will a 270 have knockdown power at close range? also, i was thinking about the 25-06. Which would be better for closer shots?

I aint a gun snob, I owns lots of rifles from Armalites to Weatherbys, Remingtons etc. I own a little NEF stainless Handi Rifle in .22-250, bull barrell witha 3X9 Leupold on it and will put it up against any of my other rifles for accuracy, it is cheap, hard to scar up, I have killed deer, hogs, coyotes with it, I carry it in my pickup and dont care cause I didnt pay $300 for it, for the price, you cant beat it. Rossi aint bad either, but there are gun snobs out there!!! I got several long range varmint guns that my old lady bitched about the price, but she didnt say doodly about the NEF.
