i am itching to get a new hunting rifle. i have, since childhood wanted an m1 garand and i am now seeing this as my chance. I would have to settle for a ultimak because, as a left-handed shooter, i can't shoot with the sight off to the left. therefore i have a problem, wether to get the garand or to pass up and get a modern let handed bolt action. please help with my choice. and i was thinking tikka T3 in 30-06 for the bolt action, and weight is no issue, i am fit and easily carry my 8 pound BPS 12 gauge along with 4-6 boxes of ammo all day.
