I Had A Nice, Collectible, Remington Knife & Ammo Set...

...all protected in a cardboard folder I taped around it. It was a Remington folding knife and .22LR ammo set that was in the original packaging in pristine condition. Then yesterday, I moved something and it slipped off the top of the chest of drawers where it had been sitting for the past year or so and it went squash! The box was partially crushed in , the sliding plastic cover on it was broken as were the two stick on seals that kept it closed and a box of ammo or two were partially crushed. Oh well, I'll make the best of it now that I could not sell it on if I tried my best. I will carry the knife and will shoot the ammo on a future range trip (man I have not been to the range in way too many months).

The knife is a small one (next to a typical toe nail clipper for scale) but enough knife to gut a deer if need be; it sure is sharp at that. It is plainly marked made in the USA and Remington UMC. I guess now it is a keeper. The ammo is Remington High Velocity .22LR. There are 6 boxes of 50 rounds each for a total of 300 rounds, just enough to have fun with at the range for an hour or two.

I guess I had best be getting to the range soon or the ammo gremlins will come along and the 6 boxes of .22LR will disappear into the nether regions of my basement, not to be found again for years.

All the best,
