Too bad you didn't have the other stock. Its a pre-war magna with the machined disc inside and the large medallions. PM me if it is up for sale? Larry

Default Shooting!

Well Fellers and Gals,
What with another 55 day in Kansas, there was nothing better to do than shoot a couple targets with the Outdoorsman! Great fun, as usual! It always is with this old shooter!

Sadly, after shooting both the Outdoorsman and the Rusty 15-3 yesterday, I almost prefer the 15 over the OD? The little bitty sights on the OD are not good compared to the 15. I shot the same loads in both. No doubt it would probably be better for someone with younger eyes? I still like my OD but I guess this is the first time I compared the sights closely?
