Okay, no actual pics yet because my camera has no juice, my cell phone is ancient and the pic resolution on it is atrocious, which some of you can attest to.
You’ll just have to wait till tomorrow for actual pics, but I managed to get my coveted Remington 512, and a leeeeeeeeetle bit of .22 to feed it. I really like the old Remington 5xx family of .22 rifles, but especially the tube fed ones, the 512 Sportmaster, 552 Speedmaster and 572 Fieldmaster. I now have the 552 and 512, and hope to add a 572 and 510 (single shot) in the future.
Also, I got a Beretta 21A Bobcat in .25 ACP. It was a decent price, it’s a neat, quirky little gun, and .25 ACP, .45 Colt and .410 shotshells for the Taurus Judge are about the only handgun cartridges you can find right now in my part of PA. I lied, I forgot there’s still a box or two of .357 snakeshot rounds at Gander. .25 ACP might suck, but the little 21A is pocketably small and holds 8+1, plus the mags are small, so you can easily have another 8-24 rounds on hand with little inconvenience.
The tip-up barrel is kind of a neat little idea, it’s a handy way to get a round in the chamber without having to rack the slide, also makes for a very easy, positive means to check to see if there’s a round in the chamber, push that lever on the frame forward, and the barrel pops up solidly, as in the picture. Yep, there’s a cartridge in there! Not really a problem for me, but I know sometimes people can’t handle the slide on an auto or won’t. So, how about you? Anything fun for BAG Day?
