The call came in last night and, eating dinner in the far corner of the house, I missed it. The message was from a club in the northern part of the state and when I called back, they confirmed I'd won a Ruger 10/22 in a charity raffle! A friend had entered Tam and me in it some weeks back and there were some nice guns to be won. This one is third prize, a 10/22 Breakdown, easy to carry to and from the range.
Still working out delivery details, but it's interesting. I have my Dad's old Remington 941 and a much newer Savage, both .22s.* Adding a Ruger will be nice.
* While it's not true that I don't have much use for any caliber other than .22, I am very fond of it. Light enough to shoot several hundred rounds in a single practice session, it's what I originally learned to shoot with and face it, if you can't hit the target with a .22, you don't have much hope of doing so with anything bigger. Would you rather be missing at fifty cents a round or ten cents? Or just over nickel per, if the last sales flyer the Data Viking shared wasn't a typo.
