I gave my nephew a Rough Rider .22 lr that he shot well, and my need for it had passed. I bought it during the ammo, and primer drought of '08. When I found a good supply of primers I was going to gift it to someone. Well he shot it well, he liked it. (I asked my brother first before giving it to him.) He thought it was the coolest gift ever. I gave one of my cousins a Mosin Nagant 91/30, and a 440 round spam can of ammo becasue he thought it was neat. He still shoots the crap out of it. My nephew, and brother are seeing how many bricks of .22 lr the Rough Rider will eat before it conks out.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
