    OK, I now have a license to carry! For my first firearm purchase, I am looking for a .22 long arm. Any suggestions, opinions out there? I was thinking of the Remington 597. Input welcomed.

    Annie, I moved you over here. [​IMG]

    You will get a ton of suggestions here!

    I think the outcome will be a 10/22.

    10/22!:p Just bought one about a week ago. Took it to the range and man what a blast! I havnt shot a .22 in years and I gotta say I really was missing out. CCI Mini-mag in HP, not one FTF or FTE at all! Only previous .22 Iv shot was the Marlin 60 (tube fed) and it was ok, but I love the amount of aftermarket magazines they have for the 10/22. Not that there is anything wrong with the 10-rnd drum it comes with!

    Go for a 10/22. You won't regret it.

    I will also recommend the Ruger 10/22.

    I had one and it was a real sweet shooter. I never should have sold it.

    And I guess I'll be the first to say, go with the 597, if you want to stay relatively bone stock, and shoot well. all i've added to mine is a scope base with an 8-16 x50 scope and a bipod. but then all i've had to compare it to was myfriend's 10/22 that i don't know how or if it was cared for;)

    Thanks everyone for the suggestion, opinions, etc. I did pick up a Ruger 10/22. The BF has one as well. Of course, mine's better!

    Now the fun starts

    Now you can start customizing it. There is a whole industry dedicated to things to put in and on your 10/22. Custom stocks, barrels, muzzle brakes, extended magazine releases and high capacity magazines just to name a few.

    Have fun

    Did you get the Walnut stock? How do you plan on modding it if at all? I ask becuase Im still new to the Ruger 10/22 and I want to learn as much about them as I can. However I was made a belive after my first trip to the range with it!

    I did get the walnut stock. It's really a nice looking rifle. No plans for modifying yet. Gonna shoot it for a bit.
