I'd like to know why you say to get a Marlin/Glenfield model 60, and say to stay away from the superior Ruger 10/22?

IMHO the 10/22 is a money pit. You can dump hundreds into it to make it shoot as well as a Model 60 out of the box. For someone on a budget, the 60 is a better option.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on that then.

Default Thx!

Thank you all for your replies. I appreciate all the good advice. I bought my husband a Sony music system instead of a gun for his B'day. But we will surely look at all the posts bbefore we go out & buy a gun.
Thx once again people.
Rupa.

No question-The Ruger P95 for several reasons.First off,it's about $300,mine was $350,other have purchased it for $279,either way,it's about $300.Secondly,it's a RUGER-Ruger is an american made quality firearm that even the wives have heard of-so you know it's a good name.Third,the Ruger P95 is a 9mm.A 9mm is the cheapest centerfire ammo you can buy(about $11 per 50)as where .40 and .45 will cost you about $18 per 50.Fourth-a 9mm is a good self defense round with ALOT of self defense choices.You can't go wrong with a Ruger P95 9mm.

+1 on the ruger p95... got one sitting on my dresser with one in the tube right now... its an amazing gun for the money and i will never part with it as it was a gift from my girl.

Also, i'd like to further question your problems with the 10/22? Ive had mine since i was 5 years old, gifted to me from my father. I have put a wapping 45 dollars on scoping it with a bsa3-9x50 and i hit my mark at 100 yards everytime i squeeze the trigger without exception.

Maybe you bought a used one with a poor bore or something once in your life? Not trying to start a fight or anything, but my 10/22 is one of my favorite guns.... period.

You are talking handgun rounds, but she posted this in the LONG GUNS section of the forum. I would assume that means she was looking for a rifle. Either that, or she got really lost...
