    I have a love for the 222 Rem Mag and have been shooting a Rem 722 for years.Finally found a Vixen Deluxe in excellent shape.Using it for coyotes and other varmints on the ranch.Never have tested it's accuracy off a bench.Threw a VXII,3x9 on it,and sighted in on cactus with factory ammo out of the truck window.Seems to be pretty accurate and holds it's zero well.I have not missed a dog yet.

    Click on "Upload a File" at the bottom of the message box. This will open a search window to find the photo file on your computer. Find the photos you want, highlight them, and click on the Choose button. (On a Mac, you can upload multiple files by holding down the command key. You can do it on a Windows computer too, but I don't remember how since I switched to a Mac 15 years ago.) The files will appear at the bottom of your post. Then you can choose whether they are posted as thumbnails or as full photos.

    If you're operating from a phone, God help you - I can't. I don't use a phone for anything but phone calls and the occasional text or weather report.

    Hi Thomas, I'm in Central Texas myself....used to be more active on this site back in 2012....starting to get back into it now! Lots of great folks and good info on here. I've even bought some timeless pieces from other Texans' collections on here and gotten to see some cool ranches in the process. Welcome aboard!.. - Russ

    Wow! So by my reckoning, that puts you in Winters, Ballinger or somewhere right close!

    Beautiful rifle!

    But have you tried the lunch counter at Owl Drug? Their burgers and shakes are hard to beat.

    Owl Drug just completed remodeling and the lunch counter is fully operational again!

    Next time Stonecreek comes through here headed headed for Hamlin, the three of us will need to hold a mini SSC Convention there!

    (And I'm actually a bit NW of Coleman toward Novice!)

    I call my home town Roby, but I'm really from Pledger. However, if you want to find Pledger on a map it will need to be a very old one and very detailed.
