I like single shots! Been looking at a number of choices and own a TC encore pistol in .223. I believe that the Rem Russian hasn't been around real long and it looks pretty good for the $ at least in pictures. Virtually all my hunting is for the "mighty and Dreaded " ground squirrel in eastern Oregon. I'm afraid to tell you what an obsession that has become for me. Anyway who out there in "gunsville" has tried one of these out and what's your impression?
