I visited a local mom and pop gun shop today. The owner is a Board member of our gun club. His shop is small, but has a lot of stuff and he will deal on prices. I saw a Winchester Wildcat .22 l.r. rifle on the rack. This rifle was discontinued in 2010 and had mixed reviews. I was impressed and bought it at a discount. It was new in the box and came with one 5-shot and three 10-shot magazines. I plan to shoot it tomorrow and I have plenty of .22 l.r. ammo. All the best...

Real nice looking rifle. If it shoots as good as it looks you have a winner. Always nice to get a good deal and support a local shop.

Rimfires just don't get better looking than that, it's about time someone made a handsome one. They at least tried to make it accurate too. Tell us how it shoots when you get around to it.

full sized has to make it better for practise and extra bulk should help keep it steady. look forward to range report.

Gil, when I saw that you started this post, I asked myself what good deal on a gun did you get today. You are the luckiest gun finding guy I know. Congrats! Looks like a real nice rifle.

Gil,
Congrats on the new rifle. I much prefer the smaller Mom and Pop shops to going to Cabelas or the like.

That looks like it should be a squirrel on bunny's worse nightmare.

Very nice find, good for you...

I look forward to an accuracy report....

Gil has found so many good rifles lately, I don't know when he has the time to shoot any of them.

...or if there are any good buys left.

I appreciate the kind words and thoughts. I was forced into retirement and have too much free time. I mean that I can only cut so much grass and run the dog so often. Over the last year I have sold a few pieces that were no longer of interest to me or I bought on impulse and later reconsidered the transaction. I never lost a dime on these deals.

There are lots of really good bargains in the gun shops that I visit. Many of them do not appeal to me. Yes, I have too many guns, but I bought them cheap and enjoy working on them.

The Winchester .22 shot like a dream and grouped very well at 50 yards. I intend to snipe a few groundhogs and then take it out in small game season. All the best...
Gil
