Ruger MKII-4 gophers-0

I came up to Montana to visit the folks and naturally Dad and I had to shoot gophers on the neighbors place. 22rifles are the order of the day, but I packed my MKII standard along for " chip" shots. Four gophers made that fatal mistake of getting within 30 yards:tooth:
Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Man! I'm very envious right now. That sounds like a fun time.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Oh it was! Shot the CZ 452 connected on with them from 4-140 yards.

    This is what the area looks like, man it was a good day!

    Oh of course I'm a little envious but I'm happy for you that you and your dad had a good day together doing what you love. I wish my dad was still around to share good days with.

    I am really blessed to be able to enjoy these times.

    Ah, fond memories of shooting gophers in Montana until I felt bad for the carnage that had ensued.

    Where in MT are you from? As far as the carnage the foxes, hawk and vulchers need to eat too.:tooth:
