when i was in 9th and 10 grade i was in birmingham,alabama in 06-07 after my parents got divorced. i was in J.R.O.T.C manly for the rifle team. i cant remember the rifle to much they first gave me, i think it was a daisy/avanti i cant remember. this rifle was super accurate for a lower end rifle but it fit me well. i shot my first 300 the 2nd or 3rd week and moved on to get my expert marksman badge quick. i think the rile was a 753, i would like to get one since i shot it well. when i get the spare cash i would like to pick up a used 853 or even a 753 if its not to much. please let me know what they used in jrotc about 15 years ago. and some info on what one to get. thnks troy.
