Just a few of what you might want to try if you are one of the winners in the rookie drawing. Dogsgone & Heck seem to always have a gun or three for the rookies to try. Some of these are not in the usual calibers. Have several makes & styles that you may like trying. Even let rookies help break them in sometimes. Right "gonedawgin". These are Hecks Coopers. Will try to get more gun pics posted in next day or so. The reason for the barrel leaning on the right is this is a switch barrel done by Weaver Rifles in 221 Fireball & 20 KW Special. Heck

Vince has two of the Phoenix one in 204 & other in 20 Vartarg. Have shot them and are nice but I just like wood (except for the dings )& they have same shape as wood on the Model 21's.

'Bout your Coopers......

Heck....

What model (s) are your Coopers?

Also, what make and model is your favorite scope to put on one?

Not tryin' to be nosy, it's just the fore ends look different from mine...more like a BR gun.

Mine are Montana Varminters. My wife says my hobby is not shooting; it's collecting Coopers. Nothing to match yours, tho.

Thanks,

Pat

Rookies BEWARE

Heck will lwt you fondle them admire them and even shoot em, (he's even been known to give one away), but I am here to tell you that it will cost on down the road!!!!!!! If you don't beleive me ask some of the previous rookies. Seems like even when it was the Ruger #1 craze(he still has several of them) Cliff and Grant and Jason's dad took some of them home!!! LOL Dogsgone

Heck, I don't believe those are your rifles...............

There's no place in the Liars Lounge that tidy ! LOL

Guys, if you get picked for the Rookie Hunt, you will have more fun than you can imagine. Not only will you get to shoot some of these fine rifles, but you will meet two of the greatest guys I know. Don't miss the opportunity to go shoot with these guys.

Merry Christmas Heck & Vince and all past Rookies

Anyone one who has met these guys will never forget them or the good times they spent with them. Heck is generous to a fault with some of the finests rifles this ole boy has ever seen.

I've had the good fortune to break in several brand new rifles some from opening the box, INSTANT load development to blooding them, although never got to put the first blood on them as Heck rarely misses even with a bore sighted only. That's one shot a couple of cranks on the turret bang dead dog. Amazing to watch.



But Heck hasn't kept all the Cooper's for himself, my wife got me an Anniversery/Christmas gift early. 243AI, Muzzle Brake by Kevin Weaver and a Bushnell 4200 mil-dot.

Want to wish Everyone on the Board a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Rick & Lynette

First a quick Hello to Heck and Vince. And beyond the Coopers- you can pick some old classics. I shot Heck's custom barreled No. 1 in 219 Donaldson Wasp, something I had been wondering about for some time. So, you new rookies can also try out some real exotic calibers. And, even get to see what your reloading room should look like........

Heck, are you sure that you are not DEAD?

I thought that varmint batteries like that only existed in heaven! -- grin

Wow, 13 Coopers. And every one looks gorgeous. I would be happy to own just one.

Hope I'm not

The nice thing is I think they all shoot about as well as they look. Wish I was capable of what they are, That might be nice. Do know that all in picture have been hard on a few PD's. Going out to check if a few mounds are above the snow in a few minutes. Probably won't take A cooper but do have a Kimber in 204 Ruger that I need to shoot more. SO!!!! Heck
