Which do you think is more beautiful, this custom 243 by Cooper Montana, or this prime alpha male coyote?---shooter

That's a big dog with a pretty coat, but that gun looks SWEET!

Good lookin' coyote.. I cant remember what a dead one looks like (???)

I'll give the edge to the Cooper! nice rifle... I have two Coopers myself, one in M22 CC 7mm-08 and another in M52 Custom Sporter 30-06. Love 'em.

I want the new cooper with the magazine in 280 Ackley imp. I can't afford it right now, but someday soon. When I bought my last one, I lost one of my nine marriage lives. I don't believe that you can get a better rifle made for the money. I've never heard one complaint about a cooper rifle. The fact that they re-barrel them once for free is pretty amazing as well. Glad to meet a fellow cooper man!----shooter

Now I just need a dead coyote to go next to them :thumb

Yours is a great picture by the way, nice set up and backdrop!

Sawsman,

Love the rifles! Can't wait until I can add a couple more to my collection. Yours are super-high grade even for Cooper. Mine is just a bare bones model 22, but I love it. Do you hunt big game with your rifles? I want one for hunting deer in 280 ackley or 25-06 ackley. I also want a varmint in 204 for prarie dogs.----shooter

Thanks shooter, I'm quite fond of them.I'm a sucker for pretty wood! It was hard on the pocket book, but oh well. It's only money, right?

I've hunted with the 7mm-08 but have yet to pull the trigger on an animal. It clover leafs on paper. The '06 has only been sighted in. I plan on using it for elk if I can ever draw (???)

Only one problem, I'm afraid to scratch 'em, they're too dang pretty. :) "bare bones" will be my next one for this reason.. havent decided on the caliber though. Maybe a rimfire.

A 25-06 or 280 Ackley would be great choices! :thumb
