Not sure if I put it in the correct place or not.
But I wanted to say thanks for the few days that I have been a member, I have learned a lot.
Last week I bought a XD40 tactical and today purchased a 10/22 with a Simmons 4X scope for my 10 yr. old son, he was speechless. He has been bugging me for a rifle for some time, especially since he shot his first deer this past season.
On Sat. the family went to a friends and for the first time my wife and 13 yr. old daughter actually shot the XD, neither had ever fired a GUN, except for the pellet rifle. I think I may have my wife hooked , she actually wants to "go shooting" some more! As far as the daughter goes, she is 13 ya know.
I was really torn between the 10/22 and the Rem. 597, but think I made the right choice, since my son will really enjoy customizing the Ruger.
