For those who don’t know what one is, here you go. .
I got mine from my dad for my birthday when I was 13. It started out as he was getting me a scope for my pellet rifle, a nice cheap Tasco 5x. Turns out that the scope mount that came with my pellet rifle was shite, so the scope was a no go. Not being one to surrender so easily, he decided that the correct course of action was to drive over to Service Merchandise and buy something that the scope would fit on (Go Dad!). A mere $99 and 3 days later I had my 10/22.
Now, 15 years later I’ve got the same gun, but now outfitted with a synthetic stock and fluted bull barrel from Cabelas. It stands ever ready to help save the world from the dreaded Empty Coke Cans and Prestone Jugs Filled With Water, and the occasional squirrel hunt to get tails to mail to Mepps for free spinners.
So fellow 10/22 owners, tell me about your own “Prince of Plinking”.
