My kids (son and daughter) are home from college for the summer so we decided to head to the range to catch up. They were a little rusty but quickly got back into the shooting groove as we took turns using my Ruger Single-Six and my 1953 Remington 550-1. I thought I’d share a photo of the 550-1 and its story seeing as we like to learn about other’s guns. Back in the mid 80’s I was a camp counselor at a day camp during the last three years it was in business. Before I worked there, they used to have a shooting range and campers were taught how to shoot .22’s. The owner of the camp had stopped letting campers shoot about ten years before I was hired and after the camp closed, as we started closing up the camp, getting it ready to sell, I found the Remington tucked away in the attic of the main building. The owner had thought he sold all the guns years before and was glad to sell it to me as I was the only staff member who was licensed. Best $20 I ever spent. I’ve been putting the Remington through its paces for thirty years now and it seems like it will continue being a great gun well into the future.
