Goes to buy Corolla, winds up with nice SW20. Full of win.

Non-turbo is a good choice. The turbo cars are generally beat to shit and there's more stuff to break.

Yeah, the Schmidt-Rubin bolts are fast. If you think the K31 has a smooth bolt throw, get a G11 or a K11. Seriously slick and a fantastic trigger.

Yes. The 1889, 1896, 1896/11, G11, and K11 are pure Schmidt-Rubin straight pull rifles, and the K31 is a slightly modified one, but they're all straight-pulls.

Those old Swiss milsurps are serious business. It doesn't hurt that the issue GP11 ammunition is basically match grade, either.

My K11 shoots way better than I can.

Did not know about fuel check. Nice.

Yes, "R" is reserve. Makes a lot more sense than E, because the tank isn't empty on E. The tC's fuel gauge has the "R" as well.

Standard backless booster when my son was that age. He's ten now and doesn't use any booster at all. He's normally up front with me at this point; we rarely use the backseat.

I think RavSpec has/had them at one point.
