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.

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.

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
