o crap! i didnt explain the case which to me has the most emotional value, when we were gettin ready to leave my grandmother told my uncle to go get my grandfather's old case out of the closet for me to have to take the .22 home in. he came back with this one and a zip shotgun case that was way too big for my .22. she had forgotten about the one i got but told my uncle to see if it would fit. he put it in it and it fits perfectly. after that she told me that it was my grandfather's that he had made in one of his classes in college. he died right b4 my 16th birthday so to say the least it is extremely special to me!
