Ruger22LR, Nice shotgun. I had a 12 gauge model 88 that was picked up for me by my parents ( I was still about 10 months from 18, I saved, they bought it for me) back in October of 1991. that shotgun served me well for over 20 years, and i used it as my primary hunting gun for about 17 of those years. I shot many a 25 out of 25 with it at the local Rod and Gun club's skeet range, and it help up to about a hundred " I need to go ut and shoot something before I go off the deep end!" range sessions. In the 20= years I owned it, I probably fired somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,500 rounds through it without any issues.

I got rid of it for 2 reasons. It kind of turned into a safe queen after i lost the sight in my right eye, and picked up an 670 due to it fitting my left handed, short fingered, smaller frame. I found the trigger to be a little further forward than was comfortable for me to fire it left handed. Reason 2 was a friend of mine was dealing with some hard times, and his son wanted to start hunting. He couldn't afford a shotgun for his son, so I passed mine down to him. This was a few years back, and his son has already put it to good use helping dad keep food on the table. In the end, that is what is most important to me. Helping out my family whether they are blood, adopted, or just close friends. That shotgun served me well for over two decades, and I expect it will due no less for it's new owner with the proper care.

Enjoy your new shotgun Ruger22LR, Take care of it, and it will do what you ask of it for a long time.

You could have ordered the 18.5" barrel for about $80. Took me about 2 weeks to get it, but now I have two barrels for different uses.

the Maverick 88 is one of the underappreciated shotguns available on the market. just doesn't get the marketing or exposure that many others get, but it's one solid performer.

i bought my first one about 10-12 years ago. a 20' barreled version with the 8 round tube. great gun. the second one i still have and bought it used with a 28" barrel. works great everytime the trigger is pulled. might have to add a 20 ga. with it one day.
