Picture(s) A Day – 15 February 2009

15 February 2009 - En route to Overton

15 February 2009 - En route to Overton

So last night I drove on up to the small town of Overton, Nevada with intentions to purchase a new item for my personal armory. One minor problem – I got there about 10 minutes too late for the background check. The phone line doesn’t take new calls after 1745 hours. No, I was not thrilled :evil: I figured I’d go ahead and get the paperwork out of the way and just go back today to pick my item up today. With visions of something new and fun in my head and snow capped mountains on my left, I proceeded up the I-15, transitioned to survace roads, and made my way to my favorite hardware store – Ace Hardware. You see, this Ace carries a different type of “hardware” than most – it’s also a gun shop :wink:

Yep, I’d made my decision and in the end it was the Heritage Rough Rider that won me over on the merits :) It cost about $200 ($150 less than a Ruger Mark III), shoots darn near every type of .22 made (even the really cheap stuff that doesn’t like to work in semi-autos), and it has a nostalgic feeling about it 8)

I debated the question of fixed sights vs. adjustable sights for quite some time. The fixed sights look right. They’re what are supposed to be on the gun. The problem was that they just don’t hold a candle to the adjustable sights when it comes time to pull the trigger. I finally came to the conclusion that I was buying this gun first and foremost to shoot so I would deal with the adjustable sights.

She sure does shoot :D Sorry for no pictures of the cans I decimated – more pictures of shooting will be posted at a later date. I just LOVE this new gun 8)

P.S. – Apologies for the lateness of this post – I was home today, sick in bed and asleep for most of it.
