I have always liked the Stevens Favorite 22 Rifle but have never owned one. My Wife & I was in Gander Mountain & My Wife brought to My attention a Stevens Favorite 22 they had for $100 dollars. It was in good shape other than needing a little TLC. How fun it would be to shoot squirrels with this rifle I thought as I held it. As I was about to tell the Associate I would take it a older Gentleman that was standing at the counter next to My Wife & I started talking to My Wife. I had My eye on that Rifle & was going to buy it for My Grandson. My Wife looked at Me & whispered don't You dare while Her eyes cut through Me. I told the Gentleman as I handed the Rifle to Him, I couldn't buy the Rifle knowing He was there to buy it for His Grandson & forced a smile on My lips. I paid for the Items I was originally there for & left ALMOST heart broken. I remember how I felt when I received My first gun as a young Boy. A western Field .410 bolt action shotgun that I still have to this day. I can only hope that Stevens Favorite 22 will bring that young fella half the joy My first Gun brought to Me. As always, Happy & Safe Shooting Friends.
