My son has again arrived in the nick of time to provide me with one of the neatest pest/small game arms extant.

Behold my "new" (circa 1975) Savage model 24 in .22LR over 20 gauge. I’ve wanted one of these since I realized they existed, but there was always an obstacle to achieving the goal. I’ve seen quite a few in .22/.410, & .22 mag/20ga, but seldom in my desired combination. When they did show up, the condition was lousy, or the price prohibitive.
That’s past now. I have my "woods gun" for ambling about the property & foiling the preemptive strikes of the critter nation.
Safe at last…
