I know we're all about bows around here, but every once in a while a gun company manufacturers something just for someone like me....and that's hard to ignore.
If you're looking for a new lady rifle or buying one for the woman in your life, you'll want to checkout Savage's new Model 11 Lady Hunter. This rifle was designed with only one thing in mind, a perfect rifle for a woman. While designing this gun they didn't just resize a man's gun and add pink, but actually took the time to find out what features could be improved to better fit a ladies.
First, women generally have longer necks so a raised comb was added to achieve greater comfort when shouldering the rifle. Next, they didn't just chop off the stalk but actually shortened the length of pull and thinned out the palm swell to better fit a woman's hand. Lastly, this rifle is super light, weighing in around 7-pounds. With a large variety of available chamberings this is sure to be a hot seller for all the ladies out there!
