I like a nice looking rifle. A good sporter in a walnut stock anyday. But each to their own. In the pursuit of winning at all costs, a target rifle with adjustable everything and costing loads of dosh is the way to go.

But winning isn't everything, it's the taking part and enjoying it that counts. Each person is free to spend their money how they wish. I like to look at my rifles, oil them, caress them and smell them. Try doing that with one of the anschutzftpevwalthersteyr meccano contraptions. Fugly but consistent and accurate and needed if you are chasing trophies and world fame. Oh and if you are any good at it too. Which I am not so that's why I like just good looking sporters.

Col.Sgt. Bourne: And a bayonet, sir, with some guts behind it.
