It’s pretty hard to top last week’s rifles for a Hawaiian cow safari, so I won’t try. But, every feral-cow safari is years in the making, beginning with first shots, and today, we’ve got a pair of .22 LR plinking rifles. The common link between these two, besides caliber, is aesthetics. We will take the high road and say only of these rifles that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. One has a pink factory stock, the other a homemade hardwood stock.
The Crickett rifle has been around since the 1990s, and it is an inexpensive, and kid-friendly, rimfire rifle, cut down to fit small shooters and weighing all of 2½ pounds. The Savage 64 is still in current production. It’s an inexpensive semi-auto with a 10-round box magazine. There’s a saying about turning sow’s ears into silk purses, but I like Kevin’s upgrade even if I don’t quite understand it.
