hey if i may jump on this wagon a bit i have available if it is needed by any of these kids a 2 piece Leupold base, and Leupold rings for a Browning A-Bolt (came off a micro) they are mat finish an i would ship them to any kid who has a need for them. it is only one set though. all i ask is that they be used for some kids rifle and not for some sort of E-Bay flip. i'll hold this offer open until it get's filled. no need for an essay, but if there is more than one kid out there looking for rings and bases for an A-Bolt i'll take names posted here for a while then draw one winner out of a hat. just like to give everyone a chance within reason to see it and get a chance on it.

Realize this thread is a few months old

If there's still any available I have an 11 year old niece and an 11 year old nephew "Holly & Garrett"(different parents) who spend a lot of time here in SD with my folks and myself over the summers.

Been on a recent bidding/search for a Marlin Bolt action .22 for them to use and could put a scope to good use for either of them. Added bonus, new girlfriend is also gaining interest in shooting.

Regardless, this is a great forum and a lot of good people abound on here.

There may be more coming and I will keep them in mind if they do make it. I mailed out over 30 scopes so far. The "source" is the good guy, I am just making the connections easy.

Thanks to all, especially that GR8, humble scope guy that does not want to be mentioned.

OK, I might be slow... but I have it figured out now!

No, that's double-top-secret... Surely you have not figured that out yet! wink

Thanks...


Here would be a potential beneficiary "Holly". I'd kidnap her in a heartbeat if her mom would let me.

Cal,

The kids at my hunt club were beneficiaries Of this tremendous gesture by Mr. Sitka and GR8 smile

I do happen to have 1 of the scopes I received with no rifle as yet....if you're interested in it please shoot me a PM and I'll pass it along.

It is a Simmons 8 Point 3x-9x in really good shape.

Robert

I have a surplus 1.5 x 5 Tasco that would be available to a worth while home for a young shooter.. courtesy of some young shooters here in Oregon, that got a scope upgrade... on a rifle that was originally a gift by Archie on the forum here...

there is a 10/22 wood stock that is also available to a youth needing one...

again, courtesy of Archie for some of the boys here locally...

My wife's sister has a step-son. He is 19 now. When he was 17, he broke his neck while diving in a local lake. He has a very nice Winchester 308 with a heavy barrel and a flat bottomed fore end. I saw him asking around if anyone had a scope that he could borrow on Facebook. I loaned him a scope to use until the new scope that I bought him arrived. He has minimal use of his hands, as he is almost entirely paralyzed from his lower neck down. His family has been through a lot of tough times with all of the PT trips and having to buy a special van to get him to school, etc. I think his dad's pride was some what hurt when I got him the new scope. His rifle prints small clover leafs at 100 yards. He will deer hunt this year. I can hardly wait for his first post-accident kill.

When we all gathered for a family dinner for my in-laws anniversary, I got in line behind his dad, Ronnie. I told him that I had remembered that once, many years ago, I had spent every last dollar that I could spare to buy my oldest son his first deer rifle when he was ten. The problem was that I couldn't even afford a box of shells for him to hunt with it, much less get it sighted in. I reminded Ronnie that it was he, who out of the goodness of his heart, brought over a box with at least 200 rounds for us that deer season. I told him that I had wanted to do something for him ever since then, and that was what went through my mind when Cody asked for a scope on Facebook. His pride was no longer injured. He smiled like he had just got to spank M. Obama really hard.

BTW, our community is raising money so that Cody can compete in the handi-capped Olympics wheel chair race. We're getting him a special 3 wheeled racer. This kid was always wide open...he still is.

I think it's great what you are all doing to further our sport through your giving. Thanks for all that you do.
