One 10/22 is my target gun., the other is an iron sighted carbine but I choose to take my 60 in the woods because it's just as accurate, lighter and easier to handle. When it gets cold and snow on the ground I have never done enough shooting to need a reload. Either I get my squirrel or rabbit or don't.
Just my dos cetavos from the north woods.
