great video.  Thanks for sharing.  My wife got a 10/22 and thought that something was jammed/broken.  I investigated, suspecting that it was just a weird bolt release and your video totally corroborates my findings.  Thanks!

Story
Introduction
Born in Eugene, Oregon, to Dr. Graham and Pamela D. Hoyle, immigrants from England.  Dr. Hoyle was a Neurobiologist with the University of Oregon.  Rod's mother Pam was the sweetest, most pleasant human being that ever lived.  She passed away the same day as Mr. Rogers.  There is a reason for that coincidence.  

Rod attended the University of Washington in Seattle and therafter enlisted in the U.S. Navy.  He served as an Electronics Technician for several years of duty aboard the ballistic missile submarine USS Henry M. Jackson.  He was selected for U.S. Navy flight training and was winged in August, 1991.  

Rod flew a variety of aircraft and logged over 3,000 flight hours for the Navy.  His primary assignment was with VRC-30 in San Diego, located on beautiful Coronado Island in the San Diego Bay.  Rod performed three separate tours of duty to VRC-30 and logged over 2,000 flight hours in the C-2.  He also did a three year tour as Flight Instructor for intermediate and advanced Jet student pilots in the T-2 Buckeye. 

Rod completed a 20 year career with the U.S. Navy and retired as a Lieutenant Commander in 2006.  He moved to Colorado with his beautiful wife, Laura and two children: Graham and Brianna.  Their older children have moved from coast to coast in pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.  Zane is in San Francisco.  Juli is in Florida and Brittni and her family are close by in Denver.

Rod was hired by Soutwest airlines just after Christmas, 2006.  He serves as "First Officer" flying the Boeing 737 all around the continental United States.
