Man that is a fine looking rifle. Must give you many hours of fun at the range.

rightofwayman,
Yes sir. It's also fun to use it to introduce youngsters to shooting a rifle with a scope. Many of the kids who have hunted with us got to shoot this rifle.

I bet Osage Beach is gonna be busy this weekend!

Bob

Well it is like every person in the country has come down to the lake. The traffic is a mess. The water is full of boats. But this what the business need to stay alive. It has been a bad spring here with the rain and all.

Well better run, have get the yard cut. Have a good week end.
Larry

Default Favorite .22 Rifle

I have a nice Rossi rimfire .22. It is a child's firearm, as i am only 13. I am growing out of this gun, but it has served me well. It is single shot break action, a great starter gun for new shooters. One thing i REALLY love about this weapon is that the barrel screws off and it comes with the barrel for a 20 gauge shotgun, so it serves as two guns in one. It is also pretty accurate, as i shot the cap off of a glass bottle. (luck) ahaha

My fav is my Phoenix 22a which is small enough to carry in my pocket. Plenty accurate and cost less than $200 NIB with a 3" and 5"target barrel. has also been totally reliable and feeds almost any cheap 22 ammo.

Hey Bob,
Nice rifle, but I really like that desk. Looks to be made by the same company that made my roll top in my den. Mine is mahogany and is around 150 years old. Was appraised for insurance purposes at $25,000 back in the 70s. Any info on yours ??

Jim...........

Sweet zombie target! I've wanted one of those little pistols since I saw one posted on here for sale. Good to see it's accurate and reliable. Looks like a really fun gun to shoot!

ta1588,
I was a bit skeptical of phoenix arms till my brother bought a used one for $100.
We took it to the range a couple of times and I was hooked.
I found a used deluxe range kit (photo)for $140 that went home with me.
Other then learning how to switch barrels and making the five min. mod to the mag safety this little plinker works just great. Did i mention the lifetime warranty.
