the annual youth shoot hosted by one of our state reps (believe it or not, he's a D, but a real good guy). Second time for oldest, 1st time for youngest.
Limited to 150 kids, .22lr only. No semis or bull barrels. Oldest used a JC Higgins model 10318-22LR single shot with manual hammer set and open sights. Youngest used a JC higgins model 42 bolt with detach mag and Bushnell 3-7 x 20

The results; Youngest took 1st place in the 10 year old division.

Oldest took second place in the 11-13 division.


Youngest won a Marlin .22 rifle as a door prize (26 rifles and shot gus given away plus gift cards, optics, etc).


Pretty good day!

    Great job boys. The Marlin number two got is a shooter too.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Congrats to both the youngun's!! I'm sure the smiles lasted a long time!

    Thanks all!

    Picked up the rifle this evening (FFL and background check...) It's a Marlin XT series, 7 round magazine, bolt .22lr. Got home with enough light for the boys to each put a few rounds thru it... youngest let big brother have a turn. Offered me a turn, but had dinner on hold and getting dark. Shooting high right... will adjust in the daylight hours.

    Nice little plinker.
