    I'll have to check to see where I sit on inventory.
    I just kept buying rounds whenever they were available. I actually target shoot with my 9mm pistol a lot more than I do the .22.

    I always bring a .22 or 2 with me but seems I always end up popping off the bigger stuff.

    CZ 452 American with simmons scope. Found it on the used rack at Woodbury's Outfitters in Coshocton, OH. The stock has more of a blond color. I think its beautiful. I don't see too well and definitely need the scope. All I do at this point is target shoot. It's a tack driver. Likes CCI ammo.

    I keep threatening to squirrel hunt but so far the tree rats are safe. I just haven't gotten around to it.

    I've got a Ruger 10/22 and a Savage 64. I like both the same.

I literally saw him ear-hole a squirrel with that at about 106 yards (we measured it off after the fact).
    I didn't know .22's in general could shoot that accurately despite the skill level of the shooter.

    I've been shooting the old .22 lately. I left it in the safe for too long. Spent time on the range with other weapons. I nearly forgot how much I like shooting the thing.

    Target shooting, plinking or some unlucky varmits?

    Shot targets on my bro-in-law's farm recently. I've admittedly removed some nuisance birds from refusing to nest in a more appropriate place than under my deck. After the 5th eviction notice, I executed both. The poop stopped with.
