Volume 24, Number 2 February/March 2016


Scout rifles fascinate me. Now you can find Ruger’s Gunsite Scout, Savage’s Scout, and several other rifles on the market that fit the bill. I wanted to know how the gun-store clerks of central Alabama, in the Valley-and-Ridge region, would react when asked about these somewhat obscure models. I found Southern hospitality, some perplexed looks, and mostly enthusiasm about how to help me get my hands on my own Scout as soon as possible.
