I had a wonderful time this year, and it seems as if they keep getting better. I had a wonderful dinner with my wife's side of the family, and then we drove down to spend 4 days with my family. I think I was eating about 6 meals a day. I once again managed to get everything I asked for. A trick I have been able to accomplish for about 20 years in a row. since my family lives out in the country I got to shoot my gun quite a bit. I have to say I was disappointed with how much it kept jamming. We noticed that particular types of ammo caused it to jam more or less. I will start only using Winchester as everything else I used made it jam. It was nice that after shooting about 500 rounds. I had only spent about 9 dollars.
