    Went to an auction today. Was raining and not many people there. A couple of real nice little rimfires were just begging me to give them a good home.
    Got the model 63 Winchester for $300. It`s one of the Jap made ones from back in the 90s, not one of the originals, but still not a bad deal.
    Got the little custom Ruger 10/22 for $175. Will have to hunt up some rings and a scope to see how it shoots.

    They look great!
    That Ruger is different enough to be really interesting. I bet it shoots, too. You did good! Post a range report on the Ruger when you get it set up. I'm curious about that octagon barrel. Congrats.

    I'd love to go to a bunch of auctions. It's just neat to see some of the old stuff. Especially at farm auctions. I never know when they are and dont have any money anyway though.

    That 10/22 looks like a tackdriver for sure. You did very well.
