Can you imagine the actions noted in post #1 happening today?? WOW...
When I was about 6th grade, very early 50s, I somehow came intoan old bolt action, probably 30 cal. Wish I had it today. It was rusted etc etc... I carried that up and down the road, we lived 'in the country'. Finally one day I was hanging out at the barbershop and some fish cop[ had to check us (me and the gun) out.
We shot (not the 30 cal) around the fields (truck gardens). Best pheasant/rabbit hunting around. Then in the late 50s, I75 went thru and screwed everything up. This was the N side of Toledo, 3 mi S of the MI state line.
