when I turned 16 my Dad took me to Woolworths

in downtown Nashville. We went downstairs to their sporting goods department. In the middle of the floor was a big pile of rifles. They were all 30-06 military rifles, some sporterized, some original. I picked out a Remington with a real light colored stock and an ammo box of FMJ ammo. The rifle was $17.50 and the ammo was $5 for 250 rounds.

When we got home my Dad took the mag spring and follower out and told me if I couldn't do it with one shot, don't pull the trigger. I guess that lecture on hunting with a single shot still holds true today.
