I just turned 18 earlier this month so I bought myself a birthday present today. I got a Ruger 10/22 with synthetic stock and stainless barrel. I get to pick it up in 10 days (I hate CA laws). I need to join the NRA now though. I think I am already hooked though. After this gun I'm probably going to pick up a shotty. Just what I need is another addictive hobby. My Jeep already drains my wallet now I'm starting with the guns.
