I have a dealer in my area who always has a good supply of mossberg rimfires, but I generally just gave them a glance and walked away. Well, yesterday i finally gave in and bought one, a modlel 144 LSA. I noticed the adjustadle rear peep, heavy barrel, and lyman front sight, and it just screamed target rifle. I'd been wanting a rifle like that since my days on my high school's rifle team,and at $150 it was hard to pass up. And after a quick trip to the range i was even more surprised by the accuracy. With CCI subsonic HPs, it shot into 1/2" at 50 yards! Now i'm thinking it might even take the savage's place as my squirrel gun.

You done, done good!!!

$150.00!! Great price for a great rifle... Probably a little heavy to lug around chasing squirrel's all day, but then you will probably make a few of the squirrels with the custom Ruger 10/22's and Anschultz's at the range nervious with your "High Dollar" target gun.... lol

these days that's a steal. On the auction boards any older Mossberg bolt .22 is bringing minimum of 200 with U.S issued trainers bringing much more.

I just got done sighting in one of my 144 LSA's in today, I put a 3x9 Bushnell sportview on it and sighted it in at 100yds. Several 3 shot groups you could cover with a dime, maybe the last 20 rds made up a 3" group as the wind messed with me a bit. If they're going for $200 I ought to sell one, got 3 of em, lol

Remington White Box
Winchester White Box

These are the cheap ammo in the 550 round boxes. Shoots like crud but is good if your like me and get a little trigger happy with the semi-autos. I am good for burning threw 550 rounds in a range session. I save the match stuff for hunting or accuracy testing.
