Hey guys! I had a lot of concerns with my new ruger 10/22 last week and posted them on the forums. You guys kindly answered them and gave me confidence. I am happy to report the following: ran 100 rounds (cci blazer 40 grain) with not a single jam or misfire. The reliability of the 10/.22 and that ammo has blown me away. I am no longer using it as my primary home defense weapon. I have confidence in the cartridge and think I could stop an intruder with the 10/22 but would rather be fulllly confident with a shotgun. I want to thank you all who have helped me so far. Range report coming soon.
