Biagio, I am going back home to Victoria. Well I have been here since the 7th of April taking care of the dogs and house while Hayley is a full time student at Royal Roads College.

I'll be on the rifle range Monday, I have a couple of guns that need some exercise, if you know what I mean. I will be spending some time at the shed on the archery range as well.

I will be hunting this coming Sunday as well, maybe with my slingshot, rabbits on the farm are way too calm, they are not even a little afraid of people.

See you guys in 2 weeks, 1 day, and 22 hours

Had a bit of a scare the other day. Was asked if I could work the 26th to babysit a film shoot for 4 hours. Got out of it. Dodged that bullet.

So we are just over a week out and at this point I am still good to go. I sure hope things stay the same. I am so looking forward to getting out and shooting with you guys.

Sorry to hear you will not be there Rick. You will be missed.

Cool, it seems to be about 10 - 13 people. I'll have the sausages ready, I can almost not wait. If any one is at the archery range tomorrow, I'll be shooting my guns in from any time after 11 to 3 ish.

See you guys next Sunday.

I hope you guys come hungry!!

Hi guys
It seems like Sunday is going to rain. I hope the weather man is very very wrong. It must be sunny with periods of high temperatures. Perfect for a nice day of shooting with friends.

See you guys Sunday, by hook or by crook.

Biagio

Alright. I'll see you guys there! Ed, Gerard and Gerard's son will all be riding with me.

Also, I got that sign we had talked about sorted out. Should help make it clear that the archery range is closed for our shoot.

Anyone know if Morris is going to make it? I have some stuff to give him if he'll be there.

Anyone got a Red Ryder sized airgun for sale? My boy struggles too much with anything I have. We're on too different scales until he's a teenager. I was telling my wife I'll wait until he's 10 or 11 to get him something... but maybe it's time to find him a tiny rifle and see how he does with that.

Gerard if I were you I would get him a Baikal IZH-60..or 61...the 61 has a five shot mag...
there very light...Weight: 4 lbs , very easy to cock and pretty accurate ...and reasonably priced.... 8)
probably find a used one for much cheaper.
its a much better choice then a Red Ryder IMO..and takes as much effort to cock as a Red Ryder but with much better accuracy then a RR....I think you'll end up playing with it more then him :lol:

Thanks for that Ace. Not sure about the size though. My son is quite small, and with only a 2" LOP adjustment range and looking at how big it seems in that video review, I'm certain the shortest length for the stock would still be somewhat too long. If I could find one to let him try perhaps I'd be proven wrong. Not going to risk ordering one without hands-on. I'm not interested in 'inheriting' this rifle if it is much too large for him. And it doesn't look like a practical stock to modify for shorter length owing to the cylinder location. You know how compact my Atomic pistol carbine is. That stock is about 4" or 5" too long for him.

But I didn't mean an actual Red Ryder. Just wondering if there is a Red Ryder-sized pellet rifle out there. I'll do some Googling. Maybe I'll just end up doing another custom Crosman 22xx build and make him a small adjustable stock so it can grow with him.

There's this little guy here:

Looks tiny, but only shoots BBs. Also, very cheap!

Ah! ok I gotcha....there probably are some shorter RR out there but the typical RR is 35.4" long and the IZH 60 is 33" so in fact its 2" shorter then the RR ....wish you were closer to me id let you try mine out....and just so you know my IZH 60 or 61 I have both...I can shoot them easily one handed that's how light and small they are to me...probably one of the lightest rifles I have :wink:

here is one more vid skip right to :16 on the vid and you can clearly see how short the IZH is...and if I forgot to mention the trigger is pretty nice as well with a 1.4 lb pull and its adjustable.... 8) as appose to the RR that has an 8lb trigger pull :(

since you like to work with wood you can make a nice custom wood stock 8)

Oh cool, thanks for showing me that custom stocked version, that makes a lot of sense. I can see making something quite small and simple around that cylinder. A bulky stock like that would be too heavy for my son and still too long in back, but it looks like there's plenty of room behind the cylinder to make it shorter. Thanks Ace, looks like I'll be ordering one of those unless something ready-made comes along first. I'll hold off until after Sunday's shoot in Mission when perhaps something else he tries might suit him. I'd been thinking of a Pardini Kid, but besides costing $1,000 it just seems he prefers shooting every pistol as though it were a rifle. A rifle kinda guy I guess.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but....

Sunday looks like it will be very wet. Looks like another archery range day. I know we taked about HFT being "rain or shine" but 45mm is a little over the top...

Thoughts?
