Today my parents and I went out to try to find a rifle for me. My Dad said I should probably get a rifle as he is familiar with them. I wanted a handgun but Dad said I wasn't ready for one yet. So we set out to Gander Mountain to take a look at what they had. Dad said I should stick with a .22 for now as he doesn't want me to hurt my shoulder with a shotgun. I have a pretty low pain tolerance so I think it's probably a good idea to stick with a .22, as my Dad suggested. He's always looking out for me, as good parents do for their children. ;)

What we liked best was the Ruger 10 + 1 22 Long Rifle Heavy Stainless Barrel & Laminate Stock because my Dad and I figured for that price, it has to be a good gun. Does anyone have any experience with this gun?

We only want to target shoot with the gun we buy as my Mom said I would probably feel bad if I ever shot any animals. I have a couple of toy poodles that would probably be upset with me if I ever brought home another animal, dead or alive. :D

Anyway, my Dad and I are interested in what you all think. My fellow doctor friends want to go shooting with me so I hope to make a decision and purchase soon.

I am very excited to hold such a powerful weapon in my hands.

I have to go to sleep now. I'm up late and I'm trying to be so quiet so as not to wake my parents. We go to church pretty early on Sunday mornings so I better get some sleep.

Thats a nice bolt action but you would pay a lot less for a Ruger 10/22 semi auto rifle. They are alot of fun and you can either plink with the standard 10 round magazine or go get a 30 round magazine.

That's okay. I am a dermatologist and I have the money. And my Dad said he'd help me if I needed it.

I'm sorry if I'm mis-reading this post, but my advise is to 'grow a pair' and buy the gun of your choice. ......one sentence, you sound like an eight year old, and then suddenly your a doctor..........? Is it necessary to take mommy & daddy along to buy a long gun? If you're an adult, act like one. :confused:

Not sure you would be able to handle the power of the Ruger in .22lr. I would suggest the Daisy Red Ryder for starters and work up to the Airsoft G5 clone...then a .22.

ditto on the comment about "growing a pair." No offense or anything, but I'm assuming you are of a pretty significant age if you are a dermatologist. Now go choose the gun you want and let mom and dad go about their own business.

This thread has to be a joke.

Im sorry i think i had something crazy in my eyes, powerful?:D?
Im sorry man but a .22 in my book is in the same catagory as a air gun. When you stub your toe do you go to the ER? guns are guns man, grow a pair, a shotgun weighs 8 lbs, how much do you weigh? dont let a gun kick your ass. Im sorry but i agree, this has to be a joke, your a doctor and live with mom and dad? My first gun ever was a Mossberg 20ga back when i was 19 and the first time i shot it i sold it the next day, it was a lot weaker then i thought so i went to a 12 GA and i have been in love since then.

If this is a real post here what i suggest, first off never refer to a .22 as such a powerful gun, thats just crazy..and next, you should get your own place and start running your life without mom and dad, next go out and look at a nice Glock or 1911, hell if you can man up maybe a 20 GA (feels like a .22 anyway) but if you want a .22 the ruger is a nice rifle but choose a gun that you like not what mom and dad think is best, hell if you like .22 so much look into a AR-15, more powder but almost no recoil at all, but like i said i have a hard time believing this is a legit post.

I'm a 'girl' and I shot a 20 guage shotgun and I thought it hurt. LOL I also shot Bear's Quigly and that hurt even worse. I'll stick with handguns and rifles........other than that darned Quigly.

deathkricket 07-19-2011 02:58 PM

O ya, if your looking for a .22 get one you can have fun with, i recomend a savage stevens arms 22lr, semi auto, its fun and only cost around $150.
Here is a quick vid of mine.
