Shelby and her Mark XXII 8yrs old

Hello All,  Just picked up my 3rd Weatherby and found this site. 

Mark XXII tube japan excellent condition
Compact Vanguard .243 Bonz Whitetail 2014
Mark V Varmitmaster 22-250 26" Barrel Japan Excellent condition S06718

My uncle picked up the Mark XXII new with the scope for $125 40+ years ago.  This was the first rifle I ever got to shoot as a kid.  That was 43 years ago and those memories have stuck with me.  A few months ago, my uncle decided it was time to hand it down to my daughters seeing that they are enjoying the outdoors with me so much.  His only request was that they shoot it and don't let it collect dust.  Here's Shelby's first four shots from 50ft with iron sights.  She shot better than her older sister!


That was last year and she's deadly with head shots on squirrels now!  Still refuses to put a scope on it... Kids these days ;-)
