For a while now, my STI has been running pretty rough. Failures to feed and eject have been turning range sessions with it into a lesson in how to say lots of bad words in very creative different ways. Being a 1911 guy, you have to accept that you may have to work on your pistol, or have a smith work on it from time to time. So let's tear this piece of shit apart, and see what we can do!
I love ugly guns that can shoot, and my dads 22-250 is the picture of an ugly gun that can shoot. Mauser Long Action, unknown Stainless Steel barrel, Bushnell Sportview scope....and it hits everything you aim at. In a world full of pretty rifles without nay a scratch, there is something about an ugly rifle.
One of the things I have been asked quite a bit, and find myself thinking about is "What would I do if I had to start all over again with no guns?". After quite a bit of pondering, I have finally decided to put this down into words, and why I would do so.
