The nice thing about the Ruger 10-22 is it can last a lifetime and will allow you to customize/upgrade/accessorize to your hearts content. You can add all sorts of things to make it mall ninja cool or match accurate depending on what you eventualy want it to do.

Barrels can be changed out fairly easily. Many different stock options are available from folding "tactical" to thumbhole target. Trigger groups can be swapped out to uber smooth titanium set ups. Magazines ranging from 10-50 rounds give you much lattitude.

Your tastes and needs will change over time. The 10-22 can easily change with your tastes.

The Ruger 10/22 seems to be calling my name, I think my uncle has this rifle as well, I just watched a really long youtube video on it, and everything sounds great. So I guess it might come down to what's in stock at the place I go.

You'll be happy with the Ruger.

So If there isn't a 10/22 in stock, will I still be happy with my Marlin 795? (granted it is in stock).

They're different. You'll have to handle them. Personally, I'm partial to the 10/22. But there's some serious rimfire guys here that like the others.

Could I go squirrel hunting with both?

Edit: found out any .22 is good for it, I may just go with the Marlin 795, just in case I don't get too serious. Then I can move up to the 10/22.

Most of us have purchased entry level guns at some point only to upgrade later. Sometimes it is best to just get in the game and go from there. I still have the Marlin model 60 I bought in about 1978. It is pretty much worn out and sits in the back of the safe, but I still have it. Not really nostalgic about it, it just has no trade value and it works so I am not going to throw it away. I suppose it needs to move to another location to free up some room in the safe.

I probably have more respect for the person who buys the basic gun and learns than the person who has the money to buy the uber fantastic ultra expensive gun for the first gun and never learns to shoot well.

Well I went out today to a local place called Traders gun's, They didn't have the Marlin but they had the Ruger, So I held it and got chills, but the price was $239.98.

Then I went to Academy Sports and they had the Marlin, didn't get to hold it, But loved looking at it, and price there was $139.99.

I am torn, but at Traders there are no boxes or anything you buy they hand it over that's it (I'm assuming, because nothing is boxed there). I personally want to unbox it myself because I know then no body has been messing around with it, and it's a bit more personal.

So based off that and what Robocop said which I very much agree with, I am going with the Marlin. Thank you all for the help, it is much appreciated! Now I just have to wait on my tax return.
