Default Saturday was a nice day, so took a few shots at ........

........the rifle range. Been waiting for a nice day to get out to the range again, and Saturday morning was perfect weather.



I bought this neat plinker last year, and so far it's been a lot fun. This limited edition rifle was created by Ruger in partnership with TALO to raise money for the Olympic Shooting Team. It likes Wolf Match Target & CCI mini-mag ammo right now, but it'll eat anything. This thing doesn't even move when you fire it; there's practically no recoil. It’s a bit smaller feeling than my larger custom build, but it’s light weight and good ergonomics make it a fun plinker. This is small enough that my 7-yr old son is starting with it. Incredible balance and the trigger is pretty smooth. This is my 50-yard rifle.



Here's the specs:
- Ruger 10/22 receiver.
- Limited Edition TALO thumbhole stock in red, white, and blue.
- Eurathane bolt recoil buffer.
- .920 stainless steel twist target barrel.
- Simmons 3-9x40 scope. Cheap, but it holds zero just fine.
- Dednutz scope base (Low).
- It's currently sitting on a Predator adjustable benchrest, which is cheap, but suits my needs fine and is light and portable.











Photos taken with Nikon D3100. Still lovin' this camera. Small, light, does everything I need and then some really well.

Thanks for looking at my pics.
