    Love those Contenders. I got one around 1976, 2 10" barrels, a 30-30 and a 44 mag with Hot-Shot barrel. I still have it and couple of boxes of the Hot-Shot Cateridges. I have shot squirrels with it.

    1598144751-picsay.jpg so I built this new box blind out of pallet wood and it's sitting in the drive way. Today after the rain stopped and the neighbor stopped running around. About 7:30 all was quite so I grabbed the Contender and thought I would sit in it and watch the sink hole in the field behind the house. After 30 mins this big female appeared and fell victim to the 6mm TCU.

    Very nice!!! Match Grade Machine makes great stuff. They’ve got some great videos on YouTube. Anyway, I’ve 3 or 4 of the fattest groundhogs you’ve ever seen that live on my creek bank. I feed them and enjoy watching them. One has 3 legs and looks to have been born that way. One is very blonde.

    1601251529-picsay.jpg well it was to hot and to many skeeters buzzing too sit in a stand for me today. So I took the Contender out for some handgun practice. The 256 Win scored a double.

    1602643474-picsay.jpg it wasn't no 90 degrees out Saturday but I still put my summer blind set up out to keep out of the sun and hide enough to may be get a shot at a crow. This put me out about 75 yards from my most productive kill spot. 1602643323-picsay.jpg perfect distance for doing my small caliber work. 1602643387-picsay.jpg And it usually doesn't take long for things to settle down to get a shot off.

    1602646239-picsay.jpg Sunday I mounted on the 22 Long Rifle barrel and went out for a little stalking practice. Seen my limit in squirrels but only managed to get this one. Still to many leaves for a low power pistol scope.
