RadioShack Cabinet

A local store closed about 10 years ago, and the manager sold me this cabinet for $50. No parts inside, though :( It brings back fond memories of projects in my youth.

For years, it was behind my 10m target range, and somehow got hit a few times. This mystifies me, because I *never* miss ... there must be a hole in my trap :-)

What caliber would your 10M range be used for?

  Are you sure? yes | no

0.177 (4.5mm) - it's the standard for ISSF 10-meter competition.  I'm not good enough to compete, though.

I have an "Izzy," which leaves nobody to blame for poor shots but me:

reminds me of my precollege days buying parts and assembling them into non working devices lol

Yeah, it has real nostalgic value for me, too. Kids these days have it too easy. When we were young, we bought overpriced marginal-quality components from nosy salespeople who always insisted on knowing what we were building, and we were thankful for it :)

That looks to be in fine shape, the envy of a lot of folks here :-)
