Welcome to CalGuns...take that rifle and get to a range. Look around there should be a range day shoot happening near you.

Welcome aboard, and please make sure to check out:


WRT to your new rifle, clean the bore before firing, make sure that your gear for your first range trip incules both earplugs and muffs (you'll thank me) and double check your ammo to make sure you're firing the correct ammo through the piece.

depending on what use you intend to put the rifle too, you may consider buying a spotting scope and benchrest.

Get into reloading, it's much less expensive and much more satisfying to roll your own.
