When I had the shop in Spfld. a guy would buy everyone I could get in, even if he had several duplicates. Only brand he owned, never asked for lower price, paid retail. Don't think he ever took them out of the box, Not sure what ever happened to him, some day there will be one hell of a estate auction.

Can't remember the model, back in the 70s an 80s Anschutz made a nice looking sporter model, would not mind having one of those. Like I need another 22.

is anschutz out of biz? Contender .22 barrels have a rep for 1 moa or so, with match ammo. Imhoff, from Thayer, shot .22 rifle matches, said that T22's, with the dipped in Rig grease, shot very nearly as well as Eley Tenex.

Later today FordPerfect will post some pics of groups he shot today at the range while I was shooting 200 an 300 yard gongs with a 4" model 28 an a 3" model 60 using a fairly stiff load.

Sighting-in new scope and testing ammo..

Attached are a couple of the better groups at 50 yards with CCI Standard Velocity, 40gr ammo.. Also tested some Federal Gold Medal Target, 36gr HP, but the CCI was a teeny bit better this time.. (Jim Birdsell would have preferred the HP's, but my somewhat opinionated companion did not.)

You did that with a pistol at 50 yards? That's very good.

well, if you can call a .22lr single shot that is 16" long and weighs 5 lbs, scoped, a "handgun".

Scoped Anschutz Exemplar pistol with a 10 inch barrel.. Got it with a five-shot magazine, but purchased a single-shot adapter for targeting.. Weight 3.5 lbs plus scope..

Don't forget I took a little more weight off the scope rings.

uh huh. an 8" .44 mag weighs the same and same size. and everyone considers it too much gun to carry. Same size and weight for a .22lr? Other than being perfect for shooting out of a car window, that is. :-) Myself, I favor 1.5 lbs, 10" of 2245, silenced, for such stuff. When you aint making noise, people don't call the cops on you, rapidfire is good to have, too. When the shot is quiet, missed animals/birds tend to just sit there, so the accuracy being "only" 1" groups at 25 yds is enough,

but cans are illegal in Ill, and in Canada, which means that nobody (but GK-types) has them in such states.

I only have a 7 1/2" an a 6 1/2" 44, so maybe a 8 is too much

Ever see the movie "Stripes", and the character who insisted on everyone using his self-ascribed nickname of "Psycho", rather than his real name of Francis? Where we got the oft-used expression of "lighten up, Francis".

Third person self-referencing of alternate (yet same) individuals, often referred to as "alter ego's", but more accurately described as "dissociative identity disorder"; what used to be called "multiple personality disorder".

Whichever term is chosen, the unfortunate operative word is "disorder", and while most self-nicknamers think it gives them the aura of the name they choose (Psycho, Punisher, Smasher, or in our case "Gunkid"), it more often elicits images of the sad, twitchy guy named Francis who insisted on being called 'Psycho' in a Bill Murray farce...

ok, i"ll just say "outlaws' in future, but I don't think of myself in that manner. I"ve been GK for almost 20 years now, formally and i"ve thought of "that guy" in that manner for a lot longer than that. He used to "emerge" only when I was free-sparring or when I thought real trouble was imminent. Now, it often happens when I'm just irritated, or when I think something has to be done that "normal John" would not or should not do. He's been a very, very useful companion for decades, but now, with wife and soon the kid, I gotta shove him back under his rock.

Or accept that he doesn't actually exist. He's you. You're him. There is only one person. Do you really see yourself as a gun-toting version of Sally Fields' character in "Sybil"?

Living in reality rather than in some fantastical, imagined universe can actually be awesome. Might be worth trying.

Melvin you have been in prison twice in the last twenty years. That should tell you something about "Gunkid."
