Tree rats

A few years ago I picked up a Ruger 22/45 with the 6 7/8 slab side barrel for an all around truck pistol. I have always wanted to scope it, but have been too cheap. I also wanted to do something with the smooth grips but was hesitant to modify the gun, afraid of goofing it up.

Well a few years later, and 9 years after the "over 40" eyes, I decided to put some optics on her and stipple the front and back straps. Picked up a cheap BSA 2x handgun scope for a little over $50 and a Volquartsen base. Took it out last Saturday morn to try it out on some tree rats. Seen 5 and brought these home for the pot. It's my new favorite way to kill squacks now.

Same here, that's exactly what it reminded me of. Nothing wrong with nostalgia especially when you can relive it.
