The rifle is a Marlin 89, 89A if I remember right.
At work yesterday, I had been thinking that I would sneak off to the range and shoot a few 22 rifles. When I got to town, I found out my uncle was in town, and stopped in to see him, only to find out he wanted to give me the rifle. We made plans to go to the range with that rifle along with a few others. My uncle told me a bit about the rifle that his uncle had given to it to my great grandpa over 60 years ago (he was thinking (50-52).
We ended up finishing off a brick today, so I think it was a good day. As we were shooting, I pointed out a flower, and had it knocked it down in two shots. He was thinking it was a sign I was a good shot. I told him it was the rifle. It took him another two shots to get his flower cut down. I think we ended up using something like 50-70 rounds to get the next flower. It was a very good time.
I still need to get y'all the pics. Maybe that will happen tomorrow, or maybe I will just sneak off to the range again. New toys are so much fun, especially if it is not new at all, but from a few generations ago in your family.
