Sounds like you have a great Dad! Those are nice weapons. When I was young I also had one of them. The 22 and 22 mag is a nice combination. Can not remember what I did with it? Probably traded it for something new I wanted. But enjoy that and for some advise! Never get rid of it! Since Dad gave it to you it means so much more than just a normal weapon. And pass it on to your children in the future.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
