After years of saying, 'one day I'll buy a Woodsman' I finally did. I wanted one in the Navy, but stuck with my Ruger MKII. I wanted one when I first moved to the southwest, but got into single shot target rifles and Cowboy Action shooting. 25 years go by fast. Today I received this from Mr. Pauli, and am pleased as can be! I couldn't wait to try it out, so put a few fresh drops of oil on the rails and headed to the desert with some subsonic rounds. 50 rounds without a hitch, it works like a sewing machine, and is pretty accurate too. I'll try some different types of ammo next, but I'm happy.

Very nice pre Woodsman you have there. I also always wanted one, and you are correct 25 or 30 years does go by fast. I scored a 1936 model about 3 months ago. They are great little 22's. You will enjoy this one for a long time to come. Dennis

Very nice early gun! A good choice on your part. I believe that was #1 on the list?

I bought 3 of his guns for myself. I listed all the guns for him with no charge, since he is a very good and long time friend with very limited computer skills. What I did get though, is first look and first dibs ;o)

I will take pictures and post them when I get time.

CCI gives me the best results too... anytime someone complains about a accuracy with an auto, I always check out the ammo they are using...

It was very satisfying to then move my target down to 50 yards (not 25...50) and shoot my last group. All around me people were shooting black guns, even scoped AR-15s, at 15 yards and giant, 12 inch bullseyes. I like the way it feels to walk beyond each target board to set my targets...and keep walking...and keep walking. All 10 of mine went into the black (bigger bull for that distance of course).

Gotta be most satisfying - show real class by demonstrating it!

I help with the Boy Scout's rifle and shotgun merit badge. First safety, then coaching. Then while they are practicing with 22 rifles, I use my woodsman at the same distance. I have a spade shovel hanging at 100 yards so after sighting it in I proceed to "plink" the shovel. Had to switch to audible metal at 100 yds; can't see the 22lr holes in paper. My woodsmen shoot better than I can see.
