Xmas Leftovers

Why Do Today What Can Be Put Off Until Tomorrow?

Now that Groundhog Day 2015 is upon us, I suppose I ought to post the last bits of Xmas 2014 that are hanging around the blogpile...

Nephew Sammy had acquired (via his father) a Stevens bolt action rifle in the diminutive yet still effective caliber of .17 HMR for use around the farm.

Sis & BIL have some good friends who retired to some acreage out in the sticks, and in addition to the usual cows, chickens and goats, they have a healthy crop of wild rabbits that Sammy can shoot, and his dog Ralph can (and does) eat.

Somehow, and I'm still unclear on this, Sammy managed to booger up the stock on his rifle, and needed a new one.

Well, that's just what Uncles and Xmas are made for!

Courtesy of Boyd's Stocks, I found one that was a drop-in model, to reduce BIL's workload, and looked pretty sharp!

It fit like a glass slipper!  Sammy seems to like it, too!

Watch out, wabbits!
