Kind of a Long Shot
Another soon-to-be-classic by Fred Dooley, inspired and edited by my outstanding self.
The old Remington’s polished stock was a beautiful burled walnut. It felt cool and smooth to the cheek, an oddly comforting sensation. The rifle was scratched and worn, but was built to work and to last, and had been kept clean, oiled, and dry. It was a model FS-S80, in .22/.50., a tiny projectile propelled by a big can of powder. It shot fast and flat, great for wide-open country, and for targets who weighed less than 200 pounds.
