    Thanks !
    Me too. That’s the .22 WRM I won in a raffle. Hadn’t hunted it till now. Needed to get it out.
    At first I was a little bummed the receiver wasn’t blued steel. But after carrying it around in the woods, glad it’s a coating. Less impact to hand sweet and finger prints.

    We go to Feb here in IL as well. Some sites make provisions for deer hunting, bow starts in October, they close it until the end of bow season January. A lot of people sitting in trees so makes sense not to be shooting up in em.

  7. Seems y'all have a lot tighter limits on squirrels than we do here in WV. Screenshot_20200927-190505.png

    Thanks Randy,
    That is a 3x9x32.
    It’s marked “Marlin” with a Mäde in China tag :(. and came with my NEF HR Handi rifle in 223 around the time of the acquisition.

    I like the rifle better without it. But with the coarseness of the ladder sight, I need it to pin point something like a squirrel. If I could remember hold off’s I might be able to make it work.

    Ha! Nice job, sir!

    Honored to have been a rascally instigator.

    I find the inexpensive 3-9x32 scopes to be PERFECT for .22 rifles. Mine are Simmons from about 15 - 18 years ago. They work great, because I just leave them on 9x all the time, instead of adjusting them.

    Sometimes, with the inexpensive scopes, there is some difficulty getting them "zeroed" at the bench. I finally figured out that lightly whacking the adjustment knob several times, with a small mallet or screwdriver handle, after changing the setting, would get the crosshairs to settle into the new setting, so that they didn't shift when fired. Just a helpful hint learned from experience. ;)
