I thought that I was the only person in the world who uses a Glenfield 60 to hunt squirrels. Mine was found leaning against the wall in an old barn in Alabama. The guy who found it traded it to me for a $19.00 fishing reel. The outside of the barrel is so pitted that you can file your nails on it while you wait for a squirrel to show up, but the bore is spotless and it outshoots my 10/22 by a mile. I bought a Tasco 3-9 for it a couple of years ago and it is wonderful. And...you don't have to worry if you get caught in the rain 'cause the finish of the gun is already ruined.
