Perhaps The MOST Important Reason To Start Them Young

  1. “A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.”
    —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

  2. Hey, I have a couple of those. Both are a Stevens "Favorite". Too bad that they are in .25RF and .32RF. Both are obsolete and no one makes ammo for them.........

  3. The ad cries out for another caption, but my muse is silent.

    Stevens made a modern version of their Favorite .22, and after a bunch of work removing the rust and neglect, I have one that I will eventually get around to shooting.
    It's a pretty neat little shooting iron.

    1. I'm making reloadable .32RF ammo from .32 Colt brass and .22RF blanks. A very painstaking process, but well worth it. Haven't decided on how to proceed with the .25RF yet......

    2. It might take some fancy machining, but maybe some type of subcaliber adapter?
      Although I don't think that would leave enough room to fit a .22 barrel.
      Other folks have sleeved the barrel of .25RFs and moved the firing pin a bit, but that's a permanent change.
