I told you about refinishing the rifle stock on my old .22 last week. I got inspired and dug out an even older Remington single shot that looked like it might have been used to mix stucco. I gave it a similar treatment, and it turned out pretty well.

Here's a snap of the two of them together. (the gun in the foreground is the one I posted a few days ago. It's about 5" longer than the Remington, which is a juvenile model)

Well done.

I'd love to, but it would probably cost me my marriage. Lois has not been happy with the odd smells coming out of the garage. It's a stinky job.

Well, that sucks. I was going to get in line next. I have an old .22 rifle that's about 100 years old and is in bad need of a restoration.

I can understand Lois not being impressed what with you spending all your time in the garage furiously polishing your old wood!

He was finally moved out of an incubator last night :D:D Now he is in a bassinet, and still in NICU, but no more cumbersome incubator :D:D

He is now 3lbs 15.5oz.

Thanks for asking :D

Soooo great that he is coming along good. Hope Betsy can get things sorted out soon too.

WONDERFUL photo of mother and baby. :D:D

Nice. I have almost the same rifle. It is a Remington 41P single shot .22 with -a really nice target sight on it. While it is one of my simplest guns it is one of my favorite as well. The picture below is not mine but it shows the sight. The knob on the left that locks the sight in place can be switched with the matching knurled piece on the back that acts as sight aperture. The two pieces have different sized apertures for either precision target shooting or hunting.

Yeah, that has always been a tough one and getting tougher. I figured down your way you could still find a place. I could plink up at the farm where the horses are on occasion but that's the only close place to me for free.

The NRA national headquarters is close to here and they have a fifty yard indoor range. I have never been. It's supposed to be pretty nice. You can shoot centerfire rifles up to .460 Weatherby magnum, at fifty yards :-| indoor:-| I bet that is one loud range at times, lol. I haven't been to an indoor range in a very long time.

Not for long. We, on earth, will hit the 7 billion population mark this year. It is a new milestone. The scary thing is, we hit 6 billion just twelve years ago. Get ready to eat each other like rats in a cage. It's going on 6am, I have not slept, I am feeling dramatic *shrug*

Used to be every farmer wanted you to come eliminate his crop of woodchucks. Now they would like you to do that...as long as you want to pay for the privilege. :rolleyes:
