Well, in reference to your last sentence....If you are going to take pics of your Dog, and then forget to place your shotgun back in the car and drive off...and it rains all night before you realize the next morning you don't have it...
Well, a Model 12 is a great choice...Wiped it off, oiled it....and it looks the same as when you left it...
Ok, I immediately felt what you must have felt. Yesterday I drove to the semblance of a range 30 mi away with the usual gear, targets, chronograph, shooting bag, etc. but just one rifle I wanted to sight in — a rifle worth just south of $2k. Finished in an hour, drove home.
Unloading my truck in the garage, I realized my rifle wasn’t there. Near panic, I drove the 30 mi back expecting it to be gone. Went over all the calls I’d have to make in my mind.
Get there, now after an hour of driving and my cousin, of all people, a former policeman is there having secured the rifle and had another officer on the way to take the rifle. Is this yours?!
My relief was almost physical. “Absentminded” is a very descriptive term.
Sorry Battue, but I’m somewhat relieved I’m not the only one. 🙄 😊
