Anywho, here is the day before "fat guy red suit day".
I personally have the shotgun out, so I can take some meat if'n some reindeer attempt to land on the roof of the farmhouse tonight...
Still, I went into town, for some last minute errands, like gas as the weather is getting nasty, and I do have to report back to work, after being off for surgery since the sixth, on the twenty-sixth.
I ran by the local hardware store as well, and this is where I met a four year old young man. Very polite, very mannerly, and the girls will be all over him in the future, as he is that handsome.
He shared, his grandparents had come up from down South, and given him early, a Savage Rascal rifle for "fat guy in red suit day".
Well, that is your only dumb question for today.
This hardware store does not stock ammo, so he was frumpy.
Then he introduced me to his grandpa. These two guys were "out and about to stay out of the women's way".
(Better to be out and about, than to be put to work with all that was being done, needed to done, and ...well guys, you understand). *wink*
Now don't ask why I had, but I did have some .22 rim-fire in my vehicle. Just a smattering of shorts, long rifle, even "rat shot". So we go out to the parking lot, to our vehicles, so I could show them on a map, how to go to a few "mom and pop" hardware stores, that do carry ammunition or with more driving distance, a gun shop or three.
I gave the young man the ammunition. Ecstatic, is not the word.
Besides Thank you sir! He also shares- You are older than my grandpa!
Ain't kids great?
I mean I am only 3 years older than grandpa, still...well, if you ain't here yet, wait until you are. *sigh*
I have been curious about the Savage Rascal, and have never seen or handled one.
This black synthetic rifle was in the vehicle, so I got my hands on one.
You know, I might be three years older than grandpa, and fifty-three years than this young man, still I could see myself having a LOT a fun with one of these myself.
This thread is NOT about what you got, there will other threads dealing with this, no doubt.
Instead, what did you give?
I mean really folks: To keep it give it away
