While waiting on Christmas dinner to finish, the story of my great-grand father shooting a chicken hawk out of the air came up. When he was 7 years old in 1900, he used this Hopkins & Allen Arms .22 to snipe a chicken hawk out of mid air. When I was 7 years old in 1989, I fired my first gun and that shot happened to be the last shot ever fired from this gun. Kinda of a cool piece of history that I thought I'd share with you all. When my old man passes on, this gun will be handed down to me so I can pass on the legendary "chicken hawk rifle" to my son some day. Assuming I have one that is!!!
