He’s been home all week after catching the Rona. Of course he’s been fine, just bored. Took him to the range today to break in his new 10/22. Got it sighted in at 25yds to start with as the wind was blowing pretty good. The guy next to us with his Ruger American .308 with a muzzle brake was the worst of it.
Only a few hiccups. I’m thinking that the custom charging handle I made might be adding just enough weight to not allow the bolt to come back fast enough. It was ejecting at 2 o’clock, which didn’t seem right. Had just a couple stovepipes over 250 rds or so. You think putting a lighter spring or cutting a couple coils might help with that? Other than that, we were pretty happy with it.

Ptarmigan: That does my heart good to see that youngster all bundled up and yet intensely concentrating on his task!
Brings back memories from LONG ago.
Thanks for sharing and I consider your posting and pictures as the "best news of the week".
Please pass along my congratulations to the young one on the great shooting!

Wonderful! Wish my step grandson had that interest. If it is internet or tv, he is out.

I have no sons - only daughters. But I think I did just fine. They take turns spotting and shooting.
