8 years and 14 guns later .now what?
Over the last 8 years i have played with 14 different guns. 5 of them are are my toys until i decide i don't need them ?
I play with them until i find a good load and do little things to them to try to improve on how they shoot?
2 308 Wins,1 30-06,2 in lines[had 4 of them] and 1 Lyman Deer Stalker have been given away to my sons and Grandson. I have a thing for triggers on factory guns. I change them if i can't adjust them and do a bedding job on most of them.
What is outstanding ,to me,is all of these guns have taken deer after i have given them to the kids. Well now they all have good guns and i have run out of family to give them to. Even the Lyman and all 4 in lines have taken deer.
Besides these 6 i have my own few that are all tuned up and shoot well.
Little Bill,my Grandson turned 5 years old today, i have given a 22,a 20 gauge shot gun! I gave his father a 308 so he can pass on an old 30-30 Marlin i gave him to keep it for him. I gave the 30-30 to him 25 years ago and it still looks like new but a little faded from being in the woods.
Just for something to i still maintain all their guns and we go shoot them when we can.
NOW WHAT ? I don't need anymore deer rifles so i have to figure out what to play with next ?
Black powder rifles have taken my interest now! I think i will just play with Flint lock rifles?
What do you folks think about that ?
