Okay. I NEED a .22 magum rifle. You see, about four or five months ago I bought a Ruger Single Six Convertible. Been a while since I'd owned one, and I like the fact it shot both .22lr, which I already stocked ammo for, and .22 mag, which gave me more flexibility with the gun. Well, then, since I already had to buy .22 mag ammo, it made perfect sense to buy the AMT Automag II . . . since I had to buy .22 magnum ammo anyway. But that got me to thinking . . . heck, I needed a .22 magum rifle to go with the handguns. So I've been keeping my eye out for one, and on a Pennsylvania gun forum I saw a Ruger 77/22 mag rifle for sale at what could be a very good price. I really like my 77/22 in .22 long rifle, and this gun was priced about $150 less. If it was in decent shape you bet I was gonna snap it up. So, Sunday afternoon I both emailed the guy, and sent him a pm on the forum. No reply. Monday evening I called and left a message on the phone number provided in the message. No reply. This morning I was going to be close to where the seller indicated he lived, and I sent a text message to the phone number. No response. Now, this guy was selling about 10 guns on the site, and when you called the phone number the recording said that I had called _____________ Arms. So this guy seems to be a least a part time dealer. So how about a little common courtesy here? Let me know if the gun is available, and if so send me some pics, and if I like it I'll hand you some cash and take my new rifle home. What's so f'ing complicated about that? Now I am so irritated that if the seller called me RIGHT NOW, I DON'T WANT the dang gun. Okay, I lied, I still do. But I'd be snotty about it.
