Found a new gun in my safe!
« on: November 03, 2019, 07:43:00 PM »
Yeah I'm one of those idiots. I was taking the "backrow" guns out for the annual oil and lube and found a mystery rifle. I keep all my long guns in socks and know, or thought I knew, everybody in the back row; all my long time hunting buddies. When I grabbed the barrel I knew something was off, too big a diameter, no sights, but too short for a long range unit. I pulled it out and found a CZ 452 Varmint 22 in a custom stock, scoped, bedded, action job, basically ready to go. Not going to lie I was confused. Took a minute and looking at my photo archive but it all came back to me. Got it a year ago, cleaned and lubed it then LIFE took a big change. I put it in a gun sock set it the back and forgot about it. Didn't do a lot of rifle shooting over the winter while getting through all the HooHa. Then we were gone most of the summer. Got back last week and I was getting my favorites out for a kickoff winter range trip tomorrow. Guess we'll have a new friend join us.

 Don't feel bad. I did the same recently. A cz527 204 that I used for pd. Haven't hunted them in a while. Found it in the back of the safe. It sat there unneeded and unused for too long. I now use it for coons and coyote. Still shoots great.

I just checked my safe. Nope, no surprises.  :-\
I'm going to check again in the morning, just in case. ;D

I keep hearing that they multiply in the dark. Keep checking but haven't found any yet. I'm going to have to set up a game camera and see where there hiding at.

Got the CZ Varmint out to the range. Haven't shot a rifle in 11 months so I was all over. Finally started to get the rhythm back by the end of the session. Didn't do too bad with some basic Aguila ammo, but it didn't out shoot the 16" American even with the better scope. The 16 has a better trigger and That was my last group so that certainly helped. Had a loose round and held it left 1" for the money shot!

Did a similar finding after my year of medical BS. Forgot I had purchased an additional AR15 in 300 blackout to set up for subsonic.  Then the med stuff hit and barely opened the safe or shot anything for a year. Also never applied for the suppressor I was going to use. Pleasant surprise on the rifle not so much on another long suppressor wait when your already 71.
