Hard to find Items… Life is good!

Well hello my friends! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but I have been busy and also playing around enjoying my retirement! That is not to say that the J.E. Arguello Rod Co. has not been in full swing! So first off let me tell you about my acquisition of a new Henry Rifle! I have always wanted a Henry .22 cal rifle, well a while back I was in a gun shop and lo and behold there was a used Frontier model .22! This gun was like a brand new one, not the Golden Boy but a Frontier which is an all blue model with the octagon barrel … right down my alley! So I bought it! … Well now what do you do with it? !!! Started looking around for a gun range to shoot at and found that the ones accepting memberships wanted me to hawk my house for the membership fees! Well in the process of looking around a friend of mine invited me to go shoot at a range he has been a lifetime member of. Sure! Lets go, by now I had also acquired a new Ruger Mark III also! The day came and I asked my wife if she would like to join us? “I haven’t shot a gun since I was a kid, with my Dad” she said, but yeah maybe I’ll just go along and watch. Well when we got there we got all set up and I sat Verna down on a bench and put that Henry in her hands… problem! She wouldn’t give it back! Needless to say she had a bunch of fun! The next day we were kinda mulling around the house having coffee and I could tell she had something on her mind! Well she said “We’re going shopping!” OH OH I thought… I bought a couple of guns now I have to buy her a new couch or somethin’ !!! What are we shopping for, I sheepishly asked? … “We’re gonna find me a gun!” she said! Cool! Have I ever told you guys how much I love that women? Well after a bit of searching for a week or so we found her a nice Ruger 10/22 take down! Really nice gun! She loves it. Well as I ramble on I don’t know if I need to tell you, but ammo is almost impossible to find these days! There is a nationwide shortage! But persistence pays off and we have enough for Verna to shoot to her heart’s content. On an unrelated note you may know that Hostess Twinkies are back! Yes they are also hard to find, seems that like .22 lr ammo people are waiting for the delivery trucks to be unloaded and grab them up! Today Verna found some Twinkies… Yum … life is good.


So what’s up with the J.E. Arguello Rod Co.? well I will post an update in the next day or so…

Thanks for reading my post…







Life is good!!!!!!!!!!!!
