Next year for my birthday i plan on buying a Ruger 10/22 and 5000 rounds of .22lr.
ehhh good choice, but there is something better. Your username is Texasfreedomfighter so i would guess that you live in texas, well if you do live in texas go to a gun show. There is one a month in almost every county, see if you can find a .22lr and 12 (or 20) gauge combo gun....it's like $125-$170
