Everyone has one because they're simple, easy to shoot and function flawlessly 99.999% of the time. The 10/22 that I learned to shoot on 25 years ago hasn't been cleaned since I first shot it, yet I can borrow it and split a couple of bricks between my brother and I and never have a single jam or misfeed.

The action isn't elegant and the trigger is the best, but Ruger produced what is possibly the world's most popular rifle, and for good reason.

Matt I don't believe you own a gun that you have never cleaned...

It's my dad's rifle. He has this odd theory, something about if it ain't broke...

I picked up a Ruger 10/22 this past Friday. Put a bunch of rounds through it over the weekend and it's a really decent shooter.

I got mine on sale from Cabela's for $229 with a scope.

+1 for the 10/22. There is a reason that it is one of the best selling 22lr ever produced.
