New Toy - Mossberg 702
Got a new toy Saturday. Have been wanting a .22LR rifle for while. Something fun for the range, and that can serve as a SHTF food getter. My wife comes home saturday after a day of shopping with a Mossberg 702 Plinkster. Not the ultimate .22 rifle, but theres no way Im going to complain. Its a firearm, and its a gift from my better half! Bolt slides nice and smooth. The magazine feels rough when inserted, but may just be a break-in thing. Gave it a thorough cleaning, it was covered in thick protective oil for shipping.
Light weight, easy handling, good checkering on synthetic stock, bolt holds open after last round, flip down and adjustable rear sight, inexpensive.
Cons: Imported for Mossberg, limited to 10rd magazines, not a tool-less field strip.
Beretta PX4 Storm .45 / Springfield Armory XDM 9 / Springfield Armory 1911 Milspec / Smith Wesson 686 / Bushmaster XM-15 E2
DPMS A-15 Oracle / Remington 870 Express Magnum / Remington 597 .22

It's a nice, handy little rifle. I sold mine a couple weeks ago, but it was a nice little gun.
Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

That was real nice of your wife and it's a nice little .22. Hang on to it and you may be surprised who gets to plink with that some day!
