Bought into the fraternity

Greetings to all. I'm new to the Ruger family, but not to shooting or forums. A disabled Army Staff Sgt and Recondo Scout and MP from the 70s ad 80s, working at the VA in Dublin, GA that transferred from the Leavenworth VA. Raised in the South, and glad to be back. The folks out there were great, but the South will always be special to me. Being raised on the water in NC, if I just smell salt water my blood pressure drops 10 points. ...Anyway, I was primarily shooting a LH Remington 700 in ,270 that was bedded and free floated with an OLD Redfield Gunsite single-post scope that took a lot of Missouri whitetail. But coming back south I didn't feel I needed her as distances down here shouldn't be what they were out in Missouri and Kansas. The longest harvest was a 225 pound doe at 423 yards the last evening of the season. But researching a new weapon I kept reading good things about the Ruger American. I actually saw one at a gun show 2 weeks ago. The Compact All weather .308 in left hand seemed perfect but they appeared to be a special order now. I found a buyer this morning for the Remmy and got to keep the "old" scope. Went home and found CDNN on their website listed them for $339.00. Clicked the buynow and am waiting for the local gun shop to call next week. Need to find a new pet load, so there's work ahead....I hope to be an asset here and if anyone needs anything, I'll always try to help and let you know if I don't have an answer...Bless ya'll!!
