Default Ruger 10/22 Lightweight Varmint Target

Last weekend I ordered a Ruger 10/22 Lightweight Varmint Target 22 rimfire rifle for my daughter. I just checked the tracking # and it's here!! Now just waiting for that call from my FFL to take possession and hand it over to my daughter as a gift,I'm so excited you'd think I was getting a new rifle! lol

Here's a catalog pic. of the Ruger 10/22 LVT

We still need a scope.
I've been researching scopes,even posted a thread in optics about rimfire scopes. After reading members input and zillions of reviews,I think I will order a Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3-9x40.

http://swfa.com/Nikon-3-9x40-ProStaff-Target-EFR-Rimfire-Scope-P51957.aspx

I know Nikon makes some nice glass,the efr target model had high owner reviews,to top it off Nikon has a instant 40.00 rebate on this scope until the first part of May,costing 149.00 after rebate.
I've read the EFR Target w/the AO focuses down to 10 yds with very good target clarity,I just wish the reticle was Mil-Dot or BDC for target shooting longer distances.
Does anyone here have one of the Nikon Prostaff EFR Target 3-9x40 scopes?

MOshooter!

Great choice on the Ruger 10-22 Rifle and the Nikon Scope. She will love the rifle and love shooting it! Three years ago I bought the grandkids all 10-22s for Christmas with scopes! Best money I ever spent! They love the rifles and have had hours of fun shooting them. And thank you for spending time with your daughter! GOOD DAD! You are to be commended!

I bought my first Ruger 10/22 carbine in 1985. Best .22 on the market then, the best now. Zero that scope and you've got a little tack driver. My son and I are getting 1 inch groups at 100 yards with no modifications. Well done, you and your daughter will have years of enjoyment.

Those Ruger 10/22s are some nice rimfire rifle. I bought a 10/22 the first year Ruger brought the Target 10/22 onto the market and was so impressed with the rifle,I bought my Son a 10/22 carbine many years ago.

You and your Son really have that 10/22 carbine dialed in,and sounds like a excellent rimfire with groups like that at 100 yds.,nice shooting there 7point62!

Thank you,I hope we get to pick up the rifle today? I'm really looking forward to this rifle,just to see the look on her face while she's unwrapping her Ruger 10/22.
Thanks again
