The Crickett rifle that Reno ordered for his daughter came in.
Since Reno is a thoughtful father, it was, of course, necessary to take it the range and sight it in before being presented to the young lady on Christmas morn.
And before you ask: any firearm should be tested with at least 200 rounds. So we brought a 550 round brick of .22LR. Maybe two. I forget.
You know, you'd think that no one else has ever seen two gentlemen of the knuckle-dragging persuasion hunkered down with a spotting scope and a hot pink .22 rifle -- properly sandbagged and resting on a benchmount.
The peep sight is a little coarse, but we got a 25 yard POA/POI good enough to reliably break clay pigeons.
Unfortunately, Reno has a scope mount on order, so when that comes in, we'll have to do the whole "sighting-in" thing all over again. Forced to put another box of .22 through it.
Ah, well, the sacrifices one must make.
It's a sweet little rifle -- emphasis on the "little". Had some teething problems with extracting empty cases, but we hit some burrs with a file and pretty much cleared that up.
I'd recommend the Crickett rifle for any parent who wants to give their little shooter that first rifle.
