My favorite is a current production left hand Browning T Bolt with subsonic HP by Fiocchi. Currently the scope is a Hawke Vantage 3-9x40, but that may change. Don't have any photos of the rig.

Nice rifle 6mm06. I kick myself from time to time for selling mine.

K22, I kick myself too for nice guns I have sold or traded over the years. An early model Winchester 9422 and Colt New Frontier and Peacemaker 22’s with magnum cylinders come to mind, and these are just a few I wish I had back.

Those are some fine looking rifles in your post above.

My newest project has been this Kimber HS which is now in a Kimber varmint stock I rebedded. This one shoots better than I had expected.


And one that never disappoints me is this Sako Quad.

K22, Beautiful !!!! Don't you just love fine rifles !!!

Today I spoke with a local guy at a gun shop who does some gunsmith work, inquiring about lightening the trigger pull of my Remington 581. Any suggestions on that?

I still like to hunt with Winchester 67A with HP shorts it came with Lyman Sights.
Our Dad's bought them, so we had a rifle club in 1962
When I was a Boy Scout.
Later we went to the Naval Station and shot indoor small-bore with Winchester 52's, 1964-65.
The Navy set me up in ROTS. Off to college, I went.

Ruger 10-22, Green Mountain 17" Heavy Tapered Sporter Barrel 1:16 Twist, Volquartsen Trigger, Boyds Stock, Leoupold 3-9

Plenty of squirrels, rabbits, jacks, and even a few coyotes have all been taken with this rifle.

204AR:try any farmer that grows corn or other grains they should have them around their shelter belts or any creeks/river with trees for them to nest in.

When it's green out, I usually use the old single shot, Harrington & Richardson Topper model #58 in 410, but when it's brown out, I use my suppressed RAR in 300 BO, with a subsonic 130gn Speer Hot Core load I developed, goin 790 FPS. This along with a Vortex 4-16 Diamondback scope produces head shots to about 50 yards very easily, with very little to no hold over.

The expansion velocity on this projectile is waaaaay above the MV produced, and does NOT expand, but instead pencils through, so meat damage is minimal with proper shot placement. Head shots produce a helicopter effect flying squirrel, and very few (none) are not recovered.

I hunt in a very secluded, sparsely populated area, and take only low angle shots, as the Hot Core keeps on a'goin after deliverin its near head removing punch.

I thought I would try something different this year. I've been practicing with a s&w 617 revolver and a ruger Mklll with red dot this summer. I think my limit on distance for head shots is about 20 yards.

Handgunning squawks is a ton of fun. I have an old K22 that has killed a bunch. I have used Ruger MK semi autos over the years for squirrel hunting. I have also used centerfire .38 Special and .45 ACP with powderpuff wadcutter and SWC loads.
