Today is like Christmas!

I'm over here opening boxes and bubble wrap is flying.

My new 10/22 Adult size stock and Green Mountain barrel showed up today. On time shipping, THANKS UPS!

Gotta love when you don't have to wait the whole weekend for that shiny new box.

LOL. You must have me confused. I just like to go to the range and make little holes in little targets.

I got some parts today for a gun that has been broke for over a year. Nothing exciting but it's nice to come home to find parts in the mail.

Living room is not my problem.

It should shoot ~ .5" groups @ 50 yards with good ammo if I do my part. It needs a trigger job.

Hahahah! That's what I was thinking.


I have a 10/22 with a Hogue overmolded stock and an Adams & Bennett bench rest barrel.

It's a 4-16 BSA that I got for dirt cheap. I don't have much in it at the moment, relative to what some guys spend.

He's quite spherical actually. Much like Danny Devito.

Danny Devito as the Penguin or Danny Devito in Twins? It makes all the difference.

That looks like a nice shooter! What's the lever in front of the trigger guard? Does it use a detachable mag?

It's a 10/22. They're all detachable.

Update: Stock trigger is BAD, and is much more apparent now that the gun is usably sized. I'll be looking into sears/triggers now...


50 yards, pretty substantial gusting winds, remington bulk ammo or Federal "target" if noted. I'm going to have a lot of fun with this thing.
