I like the shade of the stock on that Ruger .338 win mag.

What kind of bullets do you shoot out of your rig?

I only use 225 gr with RL 19 powder. If you go to Alliants web site you will see a load that should give you approximately  2944 fps. It sure feels like it,very snappy .Many people comment on the sound when I go to the range.

Can't get the pic of that .338 Deputy.
The shotgun looks like a sweet toy.

I'm jumping in an extra due to being away at work and missing a couple weeks.

Tonight's addition completes the guns I received as a youngerster from my late father. I received the .303 British and this shotgun the same fall in 1980.

This is an Ithaca, model 37, Featherlight, this gun I really love, it's one smooth gun. I used it for water foul and upland for years and after the laws changed I did use it with steel shot a fare amount, fortunately I do not see any resulting damage as I did put quite a few rounds of steel through it. Now it's used only for upland and skeet. It's unreal how effortless and smooth the action on this gun is they just don't make them like they used to boys as we all know.   

These 3 guns that I received from my father I will never sell, not that I sell any gun but these I will not as they will be passed on to my 3 sons in the order I received them from eldest to youngest. All my guns will some day be passed onto them but these have already been designated. The rest they can fight over when I'm gone lol.

I some times wonder if my grandfather (i never met him but have a few of his guns) every though of his guns been used one day by his grandsons. I go through my collection some nights and think which guns I would like to see stay in the family for the next number of generations. My two girls have already pick, or asked for the ones they want like your boys have Wallyeyes. They tell me now that they will not sell any of my guns even the newer ones that are just guns. Makes me feel good of course. Ithaca shot guns are a house hold name for most of us Canadian's and a well build shot gun, it has put lots of birds on the table. Let's hope our kids, kids are able to hang on to these family treasures.

These are special guns from loved ones and quality too. These should always be kept in the family for those that appreciate the rare opportunity to receive such a special gift.

It's a 28". Just the angle the pic is taken at makes it look longer.

This one is the Winchester model 12 pump 12 Gr. Made in 1954 before they went to the stamped steel receivers. Bit of a safe queen and don't use it much but again a family hand me down so it will move on with the kids one day.

This weeks addition is a favourite of mine, by far the funnest gun I have to shoot. Shot many a Beaver with with this gun with the wife's Uncles on their traplines and flipped many a Gopher at long range. Just an all round great little gun to shoot. Don't care for the scope I have on it now, it was a last minute thing last summer before we went out for a Gopher shoot. I had a smaller Bushnell on it that took a hard hit and dislodged the crosshairs in it a while back and just through this one on we had from a cheap dog setup I bought a while back. I don't care for a scope on a lever but do to my diminishing eye sight in my shooting eye I have no choice.

Winchester model 9422m, in 22WMR.

Sweet looking piece of equipment.  The .22 WMR sure makes a great addition to anyone's rifle collection, good for more than gophers & coyotes as well!!! ;)  I am in a quandry as whether to buy a .22 WMR or .17 WSM.
