the ruger 10/22 is one of the most customizable rifles made. however, buying and installing all the custom do dats can get pricey quick. personally i dont care much for the look of a factory 10/22. when i come across a used one im going to get it but thats only for the reciever. i want a new stock, barrel, and trigger group. but thats just me. they are popular for a reason. they are easy to take apart and do the modifications..if its what you want get it.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
