By the way, thanks to all of you for the information and patience for a greenhorn such as myself.

I second his opinion. You can buy a good sks these days for $300 and under. They are easy to operate+good caliber+inexpensive ammo. Good for hunting and self defense. Give it a thought.

I would get the standard Ruger 10/22. it is basic and works good.

Then as you grow in your shooting you can customize it any way you wish.

for a good supply of stuff check out Stocky's Stocks.
