have rediscovered super-long-distance
shooting as a challenging and exacting
art, a science that requires tremendous
discipline, practice, and the right equipment. In turn, the shooting industry has
responded, tempting this growing pursuit
through finely tuned marketing of specialized rifles, optics and ammunition.
Every trend creates collateral customers who identify in some way with it and
want to be part of it, thus the array of
long-distance rifles available today.
We also are in the era of the supereconomy rifle. Or should I say, we've
re-entered the super-economy rifle era?
Just recall the Savage 340, offered back
in 1950 at a price below what might have
been considered for a standard economy
model.
Today, almost every large gun manufacturer offers a super-econ rifle. Some
are part of package deals that include a
scope and mounts. A couple rifles have
proven so popular that they've diversified
into many sub-variant models. It's a large,
successful market. And the old cliché,
" You only get what you pay for " does
not hold true for some of these makes, as
they often provide astonishing accuracy.
Traditionalists with a fixed perception
of the qualities a deer rifle should possess often equate the super-econ lines to
disposable products. Even buyers realize
these rifles aren't heirlooms and they
won't appreciate in value; they might not
even last.
But aside from their popularity, curiously, there exists a large number of companies that design upgraded replacement
components for hunters who buy superecon rifles and enjoy customizing them.
There also is a lot of novelty and

superfluous design in many modern
guns - an attempt to make a product
appear superior, modern or cutting edge,
as seen with everything from toasters to
SUVs with sharp-cut shadow lines, and
contrasting textures, patterns and colors.
Then again, was that not the intent of the
California-style of stock design back in
the early 1960s?
Another advancing trend is that many
younger hunters have a newfound interest in shooting those older guns that have
been in their families for generations.
Aside from a nostalgic experience, many
find that there is a glut of high-quality
older guns with very low round-counts
on dealers' racks as retired hunters sell
off their collections.
Work the buttery bolt on a Mauserstyle vintage gun and you don't have
to know much about guns to recognize
quality, or perhaps, a bargain.
At the beginning of this third era,
H&R 1871 and New England Firearms
produced a break-action, single-shot rifle.
Available in both hardwood or synthetic
stocks in a variety of calibers that were a
big hit with value-minded deer hunters,
they came in many models and finishes,
and were surprisingly accurate.
Another popular single-shot was the
Thompson Center Carbine followed by
the T/C Encore in 1996. The great thing
about these versatile, interchangeablebarrel single-shots was that they allowed
shooting a variety of calibers with only
having to purchase the platform. The
different configurations made possible
with a variety of available accessories is
staggering.
