Really nice rifles for sure. I'm partial to the old Walther's, very nice Gard.

Nice rifles and coat Bberg---you must be pretty dedicated to practice on days like the one in your last picture, looks cold!

Very nice Anschutz's also, Gard and Alan.

Kirby, that first rifle is very striking, I really like the stainless with wood. What make of rifle is it?

I'll have to ask my bride to do some camera duty, she is much better than me.

The rifle is a CZ 452 Style that I had cut , recrowned, and had a front sight base installed to fit into a CZ 452 Full Stock . The rifle is nickel plated .
I bought two of these 452 Styles . The first shot awesome so I ordered another . This one didn’t shoot good at all . 2”+ groups at 50 with match ammo . I messed around with the crown , swapped stocks , tried bedding a couple of stocks . Put thousands of round through it trying to get it to shoot .
So, I said , what the heck , can’t ruin it by cutting it off . After all of my efforts I finally got it to shoot 1” groups at 25 yards , and made it my primary offhand rifle for awhile . . I will take that anyday shooting offhand .
Then I switched bolts with a 452 Scout I owned , and it’ll do half inch groups at 25 now . Bet I’ve put close to 10,000 rounds through her . She’s been shot more than any rimfire I own . Guess the one that gives you trouble is the one that gets the most attention. Kirby

Before two years ago, I worked part-time, so I had Tuesdays off. I had a lot more time to participate in this match. After I went full-time, I haven't been able to turn in many scores. Half the year, I shoot air rifle indoors with a group and I compete about once a month. I try to keep it fun and not take myself too seriously. Regarding the February photo, if you want some outdoor practice up in my neighborhood during that time of year, you have to dress for it.

Even if I haven't turned in a score in a while, I still check this offhand thread to keep up with what is going on here. A lot of very good scores coming in recently! I'm enjoying the rifle pics too.

I'm in the same boat! For years I worked swing shift and had my days free to shoot. Then I had to move to a traditional day shift.
Especially this time of year its dark when I'm home. So no time to shoot.
But I'm nearing retirement, and that would let me shoot when I want again. DR

Here's my Miroku looks-like-an-1885 in 22LR, which I dearly love. I don't shoot competitions, and my 52B is just plain too heavy these days for offhand use, so this is it.

Scope is a Nikon 4x fixed, which is plenty out to 50 yards. Beyond that, I tend to use the one of my two rifles that have a bipod.

@Strugl4x’s: As a new shooter, I am overwhelmed by those two targets, 99 and 98, I dream of being able to shoot offhand that well. Now not sure if I should practice or quit... lol
Outstanding!

I'm not familiar with the Gecko 37. It has the look of a fine target rifle

Thank you, don't give up, I have never shot a 100,or a 50 at 5yrds,and had many targets in the low 80's at 25,and low 30's at 50.

It shoots like one too,pretty sure I miss spelled it; Geco 37,not very common, way back almost twenty years ago I kept reading of members here trying to find absolutely unmolested target rifles, I meanwhile was snatching up the imperfect ones.

Here is a picture of my iron sight offhand rifle. It is a Winchester 52b made in 1939.

Very nice 52b, finn39! Is that the original trigger shoe or do you have a Canjar single set on it?
