Second Amendment Foundation's Gun Appreciation Day

Appreciate It!*

The Second Amendment Foundation has announced that January 19 is Gun Appreciation Day!  You can read all about it on Second Amendment Foundation's website Here and Here.  Blog about it, talk about it, and contact your legislators in the week leading up to this pro-rights day.
 Ruger has posted a page on their website to help you locate your legislators and to send them a message.  CLICK HERE to go to Protect Your Rights, courtesy of Ruger.  Click on the Take Action Now! link on Ruger's page, follow the instructions, and you will send a letter to all of your legislators.  It's easy, and it is crucial to our future.  Thank You Ruger, for helping Americans protect our rights!

*A twenty-two rifle is the basic gun that should be the foundation for every collection.  They are inexpensive and fun to shoot, so everyone can develop the necessary skills to be a good marksman.  Every home in the country needs a twenty-two standing by the door to deal with skunks, possums, coons and coyotes.  A twenty-two rifle should not be underestimated for home defense, either.  This Ruger 10/22 Sporter was bought off a used rack in Larry's Gun Shop, McLeansboro, Illinois many years ago.  It has see-through scope mounts, and a 3 x 9 scope that came already sighted in.  I have since added 1 1/4" sling swivels, a G.I. web sling, Volquartsen hammer and springs, and a Tactical Solutions Extended Magazine release.  The bolt release has been altered so the bolt drops after a tug to the rear.  The trigger pull is 2 pounds, 7 ounces with the Volquartsen upgrade.

A 10/22 that I got from the DNR auction a few years ago, has been my main target rifle this past summer. It isn't pretty, and it dislikes Federal rounds, but is a good accurate rifle.

I added a few Ruger 25 round magazines and I've enjoyed shooting that and my other 10/22's in the collection even more.
