Pawn Shop Circuit: Shotguns and Air Rifles
Dave had a beater Remington 870 for $109. That was kind of interesting, except I prefer a Mossberg, and I have enough shotguns already. His Rossi revolver was still on the shelf along with a few black pistols.
Amber had a Taurus 80 revolver for $139. It was kind of neat, a nickeled Brazilian version of S&W's famed Model 10. I'm considering it, just to have a Model 10 copy.
Amber also had a very interesting rifle, a Daisy/Winchester 1000XS air rifle. This was a one pump, break action rifle that came with a scope. She had it priced at $80, and it functioned fine.
So, now I was torn.........This rifle would allow me to shoot varmits invading my attic with abandon, and it would also allow my daughter to shoot in our backyard. She already has a trimmed down Ruger 10/22, but she must go to the range to shoot it. This rifle is still a bit big for her, but she would grow into it.........The stock has a beautiful grain......it has the heft of a real rifle.....a good scope......Amber let me take it out back and pop a few cans.............it was accurate as all get out. Sold!
Now I just have to keep from shooting my little girl's Christmas present........of course, I have to do a safety check, I am a good Daddy..........and a function check.....and I have to dial in the scope.........make sure it's durable.......
