Home protection? Meet Jason, King Shepard, 150 lbs, 30" at the shoulder, loves to romp.
i have that exact same setup...very nice piece, especially for the price!!
I just bagged a pesky striped gopher that was wreaking havoc on my grandma's flowers with my Savage 22lr that was given to me by my dad on my 11th birthday nearly 22 years ago. It still shoots straight. Perhaps more surprisingly I still shoot straight.
RIP lil gopher.
