Personally Filson and Columbia make darn good products, both of which have life time warranties on their products. I had a Columbia hunting jacket that I used and used hard for around 14 years. Crawling through mud, sitting out in snow storms and rain, etc.. The jacket finally began to break down about a year and a half ago. sent it into Columbia for repairs and they gave me a brand new jacket which was valued at $400.
Winchester .243 is the worlds greatest rifle. Need more stopping power? Remington Model 700 30-06 or a Weatherby .300 magnum. Browning Auto-5 shotgun. H&K or Glock 9mm.
Browning Auto-5 = fantastic shotgun a lot better than the Browning Auto Gold they have now.
I'm more of a fan of the 308. Winchester myself.
