Ruger #1A 22 Hornet
I was lucky enough to win the auction for a new Lipseys Special #1A in 22 Hornet. It looks great, beautiful (to me) wood, color case hardened action and machine turned embossing on the falling block. I understand that Ruger #1s have a checkered reputation, accuracy wise. Not to worry with this one, a four leaf clover group with my obligatory fifth shot 1/2" to the right. I am shooting at fifty yards for now off a bag. I am not a benchrest shooter, like to shoot targets of opportunity like sage rats when I move back to Eastern Oregon next year. I will try to post a picture soon.
Dear God please protect our troops, especially the snipers.
