Awww, A Bad day it was, you know when something goes missing, and you just can't believe it could be true ??
especially for simple "Too Trustworthy a Lifestyle" (ok, more like flat out foolishness)
Had my 10yr old to the range to fire the .243 I had lined up for his birthday on the 18th,....of this August
back at the harbor on Near Island, bringing stuff down to the boat, for some Deer Hunting coming up,...
I apparently left the rifle behind the seat of an old 1978 truck, that I never imagined would get worked over,.... So it may have been in broad daylight, but when I noticed it not there, I figured I had dropped it off in storage,...
took a day and a half of, "in denial," searching everywhere I would have left it,....nope, it was behind the seat, and ain't there now
I'm now looking for,...
A Stolen : Tikka T-3 Lite, in .243 with Stainless Barrel, Black Fiber Stock, Leupold VX-1 4-12x40 scope, mounted in the original Tikka Rings
(I do have the serial numbers, as do the Kodiak Police, in case anyone is wondering)
Is in one of those real nice soft bags, (can't remember the brand) bag is light green, has a bore cleaning guide in the bag pocket, and a Dewey one pce cleaning rod inside with the rifle.
Thought I'd spread the word up north, in case anyone wants to switch out the scope at a shop or try to sell somewhere, and posting with the shooters, in case anyone sees this fairly unique rifle/scope/bag combination
It's virtually spotless for wear or scratches, but the scope ring mount screws, are not uniform, I had a problem with one screw, so it is a different head than the other three (like straight bit vs. the torx bit head or something like that)
Thanks for the network of friends,
