I purchased a TC Venture last fall after doing alot of research on lower cost rifles. TC's overview of the Venture caught my eye and after talking to some gun dealers I bought a Venture in 7mm mag. I topped it off with a Bushnell Elite 4-12 x 40 AO scope. I took it to the range and shot a few 3 shot groups at 100 yards off sand bags. All groups were under MOA at 100 yards, with one group under 1/2". The gun has been a very dependable rifle and for under $400 at the time, a very reasonable price. The Venture didn't punish me for buying a 7mm mag, the felt recoil was very tolorable. In summation I am very pleased with the performance and cost of the TC Venture and when I am ready to purchase another rifle I will definetly be looking at another TC Venture.
