i would go with either a pistol, another .22 rifle. or a mosin. if you get a mosin nagant you will have lots left over for ammo n targets!
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
