"Don't let him shoot his eye out with that! Nice gun, I am sure he will love it. I need to get one of those. Lots of cheap shooting fun."

LOL You'll shoot you're eye out, kid!

Winchester Featherweight 270 WSM with a 3.5x9x44 mm Zeiss Conquest Rapid-Z 800 scope. Bought it in October and took 3 hogs and 2 coyotes with it two weeks later.

Absolutely without a doubt my go-to firearm for CXP2 game. One of the coyotes (a returned favor for the farmer that was gracious enough to allow me to hunt his land to assist in ridding his hog problem - and harvest some sausage meat) was shot frontally through the boiler room with an oblique shot at the shoulder, about 45 degrees. Ranged it with the ballistic reticle and then used the rapid-z hash marks for holdover. Hit it with a Winchester Silvertip 130 grain pill, small hole in the front, heart, lungs, and ribs blown out the side.

I'd never made a shot like that before in my life. It was THAT shot that made this gun my new favorite "go-to". I ranged it 400 yards.

Kicks a bit, but more than controllable.

Ohh, I was a huge Leupold fan most of my shooting days until about 10 years ago until I bought a new ought-6 and slapped a Conquest scope on it.
Since then I have rotated all of my Leupold scopes off of my game rifles and onto my small cal plinkers and put Zeiss on all the big guns. The Zeiss scopes are THAT good. To this day I can't find a Leupold that gives me an equal in low-light performance to the Zeiss.

didn't buy it but my newest addition is...

A Winchester Model 1890 manufactured in 1897 with a 5-digit serial number. My uncle gave it to me (he has no kids of his own) over the Thanksgiving weekend. Pretty nice if you ask me! For now she is a safe queen and I will get her out to shoot later, when I have the time to look for a single piece cleaning rod for .22s since I don't want to get one of those cheap screw together rods.

Can't imagine a better 'first gun' for the youngster (love the Christmas Story reference).

That's absolutely awesome--Love the historical pieces and wish these things could talk (imagine the stories).

Been on a C&R buying spree lately...
Czech VZ-24 Mauser
Polish P-64 9x18 Pistol
Walther P1 9mm Pistol

The C&R is by far the most expensive $30 I've ever spent!

A Ruger LCR .357 magnum snub nose revolver for concealed carry. I haven't fired it much, but it carries very comfortably.
