I like that 22/45 nice feel and accurate.

I don't have one, but I was just trying to decide amongst a Marlin Papoose and a Henry US Survival Rifle (AR-7 clone). I think I like the Henry better so far.

stuff a Volquartzen trigger group in it and be done with it...

My father gave my mom one of these for their aniv. one year. We had it in the family for years and Dad has been gone for a very long time. One day about 6 years ago my mom was tight on cash and took it to a gun shop and sold it. I would have given her almost anything for it.

It broke my heart. Not so much that it was about that gun, but it was a part of my father that is now gone.

It was a beauty, not a mark on it and it shot very nice, Belgium made. Oh well, life goes on.

Not mine, but I do not have a picture of mine. My father gave all of kids one for Christmas one year. I was ......very young. so that makes mine "about" 48 years old. It is all original including the leather sling that it came with. My dad taught us all how to shoot with this little rifle.

The best part, I taught my son to shoot with the very same rifle.

I had one of those for a couple of years a long time back......nice gun but I didn't like the way it ejected the spent shells out the bottom, they would often hit me in the wrist because of the way I held the gun and if I was wearing the right (or wrong) kind of long-sleeve shirt I'd have hot brass dropping down the cuff. I found myself holding it at an awkward angle when I shot it, so ultimately sold it. They are definitely an old classic, however.

Now I know where all the Ruger Pistols are hiding.

can't find a used one to save my life out here, unless I want to chop off a nut...

Nice!

My first rifle at 15 was a Winchester Model 69 I bought at a yard sale for $45. I still have it, and will pass t down to my son.
Since then, I've added a Savage Sportster, a 10/22, a MKII Target pistol, a New England Youth Combo (.22 and 410), and had a Single Six come and go.
I love plinking!
