After the leaves came off the trees my dad made me give up the single shot 20 guage for a nice little single shot bolt action, god only knows what the hell it was, old ass, beat to ****, accurate as hell, iron sight 22 for the first few years of squirrel hunting. Old man has about 100+ guns and I got the one that I think was old enough that it was listed somewere in the bible as some sort of biblical prototype.
After I got a little older be hooked me up with an 870 early in the year and a couple of Rugger semi autos for later in the year.
As a result, my 10 year old and I are going squirrel hunting tomorrow and he will be packing a H&R single shot 20 gauge and later this year I;m taking it away and replacing it with a similar .22.
I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.
