If you have a centerfire rifle I would rig the 10/22 in a similar fashion. If you don't have a centerfire rifle I would shoot it now. I wouldn't do anything to the rifle. The idea behind owning a rimfire rifle is cheap practice. Just take small steps in your shooting. I print out targets that have 12 rabbits on a 8.5 x 11 piece of printing paper. I try to shoot the rabbits in the head at 35 to 45 yards. YMMV.
