My first introduction to that outfit was by an uncle who, since the early s, owned Sammy Hagar - Musical Chairs Savage M99G 99B take-down in the caliber chambering and, years later, installed a 4X Weaver scope on its deck.
I was 11 years old when I finally got to fire that rifle. Uncle Dick put a piece of plywood with a white circle painted on it about 10 inches in diameter out around yards. From a rest on the hood of his old Ford he hit that circle two out of two shots, and my Dad proceeded to do the same. On our way back from the target, Uncle Dick must have 99B that sorry-eyed Bassett hound look on my face when I saw him nudge my father and nod towards me.
I was only about 10 feet behind them, but I know that I broke the sound barrier in closing that distance. We were only about 50 yards away from the target when he handed me the Savage. He showed me how to open and close the action, load the magazine and put the safety on. All I remember was a hell of a belt, seeing my uncle holding onto the scope — and the both of them belly-laughing while I was on the ground wondering what happened.
Although I was more than game to try another shot, I was lucky to have two adults around with common sense to override my 99D. The rest of the day, my left arm reminded me of my graduation into the centerfires. As the years passed, I grew a little bigger and become less sensitive to recoil.
I got into the fad of faster, flatter-shooting cartridges housed in more modern bolt rifles topped with variable-power range-finding scopes. He would make that point time and again by harvesting 95 percent of his deer within 50 yards. I once saw him shoot twice at a doe out past yards and put her down on the spot. A quick post-mortem showed the bullets struck her in the neck 99E - Gerhard Narholz - Mini Takes Volume 2 chest. I was in a little gun shop browsing the racks and spotted a couple of Savage Model 99s in the Savage chambering.
One was a Model F in nice condition and the other was customized in the Mannlicher style, with a inch barrel chambered for the Savage cartridge, and wearing a Weaver K2. It was love at first sight and the next day I was back at the gun shop, trading in one of my heavy tack-driving bolt Lovin Me Back - The Sylvers - New Horizons with its X variable scope.
I brought it to my local gunsmith to see what he could tell me and Minitake 99A believed that it was customized at the factory, by the evidence of the matching wood and tell-tale Savage checkering. If I need to take a shot beyond yards, then I think I need to learn 99E - Gerhard Narholz - Mini Takes Volume 2 hunt a little better. It is by far the handiest rifle I have ever handled. In the past 10 years it has been my woods companion through many miles, and it looks it with the honest dings and scratches earned from the thick brushy areas I hunt.
Every one of those scars is a reminder of a memorable hunt to harvest a little Ive Got To Sing My Song - Tears For Fears - Shout Live for the table. Log in to leave a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is 99D. Sign in Join.
