I have been thinking about buying a new rifle for my wife. I have heard mixed reviews on the savage axis. Was wondering if any one has shot one or owns one and what they thought of it. I am on a budget, so buying a more expensive gun is sort of out of the question. If there are any other guns out there around the same price I am open for looking at them. I know there are a couple others out there. I just want the best gun I can get on this budget.
