Default Now I must have one...

I did this with a bud of mine in the desert.




Now I must have a Ruger 10/22.... period, what a nice little rifle. My next purchase for sure.

And $500.00 worth of modifications later. You'll still love it. They are addictive as crap.

I wouldn't mind getting one. I just don't want to get addicted to a 22 just yet...in a couple years, I'm game.

Hey MasterPSmith, did you make that stock of did you buy if from somewhere? That thing is super nice. I really like thumbholes, and I really like the fact that that one has finger grooves. Never seen one like that.

Yer on for that Jim, twist my arm... OK i will shoot it. Knowing you it is a tac driver for sure.

Im thinking right after my payday, i will coordinate a day with you, have you fix my bad habits with my .45 and would love to shoot that 10/22, and im interested in the mini 14 too.

I found a 10/22 at the local gun store, 225 with wood stock, they want more for the black polymer, but I like wood.

I will start with it box stock and just enjoy it, and take the girls shooting, they love shooting 22's, lots of fun with spinners... and various targets they make for them.

then a scope, and so forth...

Stalkingbear,
That is a nice looking rifle. I am so amazed at the quality and price of the Ruger 10/22, truly an all American rifle.
the other thing I was impressed with is how I could put shot after shot within a quarter inch of each other freehand.
I can not wait until my nickles add up to my new rifle...

I actually found a box of 500 .22 Long Rifle Cyclone High Velocity Hollow Points.

36 bucks.
Turners had just got them in and there were only 4 boxes left. I could only afford one box. I am going to stretch it thin and get the rifle at the end of this month...

Plane Jane Rugger 10/22, I held it tonight when I got the ammo, nice open sights, real purdy wood stock, that is how she will stay for quite a while...

In the communist state of Ka. I get one 10 round clip with it, because we all know that 11th round can kill you...

Can't wait...

I hate the 10/22. A Marlin 60 is much better. BTW, I just bought 2 bricks, 1100 rounds of Centurian 38gr hp's (Aguila) for 52.00 shipped.

With CCI mini mags or Aguila High velocity there is no change in POI. I even tried Aguila subsonic .22lr and the POI was less than 1" lower at 50 yards and they cycled! No grunge left behind in the action that happens w/ bulk .22 ammo. Regular Aguila ammo is Eley primed, Really top notch ammo. For 38gr Hyper-velocity it averages $28.00 per 500, subsonic 40gr. is $24.00 per 500. BTW, The Model 60 is a 14 round tube.

Edit: One on top

I checked and the Marlin 60 goes for about 165 bucks, some more some less.

The only thing I don't like on it is the tube. The ruger can swap out mags...

I do not know enough about either one to make any more comparisons, input is welcome from others.

I am still leaning toward the Ruger because of the ease of loading and reloading via clip. The one I shot functioned perfectly was box stock and amazingly accurate...
