CZ 452 – A Very Accurate Rifle

Sometimes the subject comes up, “What’s my favorite all around 22 rifle?” For me, it’s the CZ 452? It’s small and handy enough to teach kids on it. It’s light enough to hunt small game with.

This is Not Gun Abuse 

A lot of guys will say it’s abuse but the truth is, if you carry 24/7 your gear gets wear and tear. If you want a safe queen; don’t carry it. #realmenscratchthierguns.     Freeze  www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Looks like opening day 2017 for Kentucky was successful. My son in law went out and filled both his tags the first morning. He was using a Marlin 1894 Lever action chambered in 44 Magnum.
