From the Readers: Lucky rifle

There's nothing like that new rifle smell!
From the Readers: Lucky rifle

By Ross McClintock | Utah

FTR-Small-LogoA few weeks ago I purchased a Ruger American .270 (digital camo stock). I put a Redfield 6x18 scope on and headed out to the desert to sight it in. I pulled off the road and stepped out onto a pile of .270 brass! My buddy said this must be my lucky day!

After sighting in we headed back to town. I looked over and here is a coyote staring at me. I stopped, got out, and loaded my rifle all without the coyote moving! I verified the rifle was sighted in and my buddy took my pic. I think this is my "lucky rifle"!
