Today while in town getting more stuff to finish planting the garden, I went into the store and bought some .22 short hollow points. I did'nt realy need them, and did'nt know really why I got them. They were CCI's. Well I got home and after I finished up my work, I remembered I'd left them in the truck. What to do? Went in the closet and got my dad's old Remington Scoremaster. It had'nt been shot in serveral years, I just clean it and oil it down good every once in awhile. Took it outside and loaded it up. And yes, it can still shoot, right where you put the bead. Even with my eyes and my glasses, I could still bust little rocks with it at 25 yards. Sure did bring back a lot of good memories. No telling how many squrirrels that 'ol rifle has put on the table. Got toted on a bunch of coon hunts also. It was almost like he was standing there with me. I can still hear his voice the first time he let me shoot it. Take your time, and put that little bead on the target son, and squeeze that trigger. It was the first gun I ever fired. Best I can remember I was about 7 or 8 years old. Out of all the guns I've ever owned or will own, it is the one with the most history in it. Just one of the good ways to remember Dad. I'm sure that some of ya'll have a similar feeling. After shooting it a while I knew why I got that box of shells.
