If you buy a Ruger RPR rifle and decide to put a new barrel in it without shooting out the original, you need to be punched in the mouth.
Seriously. WTF is wrong with you people? The whole point of the RPR is to have an affordable, quality, precision rifle that is ready to go out of the box. The preverbal, “Buy it on Friday, race it on Saturday”.
What the RPR has proven without a doubt is, we have an entire generation of people who make excuses for why they are too chicken-shit to shoot for score.
Next it will be you don’t like your scope. Or you don’t like the factory match ammo. Or you need a suppressor. Or a new stock or pistol grip. Or a new bipod.
And when you finally run out of excuses on that rifle, you’ll move the goal post and decide you’ll need to sell your “precious” and buy a full custom rifle to be “competitive”.
More money spent. More time wasted.
It’s really a sad pattern to watch someone put their ego into a firearms purchase and then realize they don’t have the guts to actually shoot it for real.
I see it every year.
