Ruger American Compact 243

It's a great gun, and a Jack of Many Trades. My wife is 5'4 tall and this gun is perfect for her. The .243 caliber doesn't make it scary to shoot for her either. Flinch-factor is mostly a non-issue. Featherweight gun, with a light kick, and outstanding ballistics (very similar to 6.5 creed). Good brush gun, good deer gun, and good truck gun all around due to it's short youth-sized stock and shortest legal barrel. Trigger is short and crisp also. My only complaint might be the bolt, as it tends to catch a bit of resistance, but I believe it to be a lubrication issue straight out of the box. My wife shot this same exact type of gun last year, and we didn't notice a bolt issue on a well used gun. Great package, Ruger American Compact gets 5 stars.
