Show Us Your Guns!

My fondest memories are of running CB Shorts through it, terrorizing tin cans, raccoons, squirrels and rabbits in my backyard. The CB Shorts reduced the sound signature to a level so as not to alarm the neighbors in the suburbs where I grew up. But they also didn’t have enough pop to cycle the action, effectively making the little 60 a single shot where I had to work the bolt by hand.

I have no idea how much velocity I was getting out of those little slugs but it wasn’t a lot. I could watch their trajectory as they arched toward targets at 50 yards. That little rifle taught me a lot about the basics of marksmanship and ignited a love for long guns that hasn’t diminished one whit over the years.
