Ruger 10/22 is what learned to shoot with on my grandfathers farm in Florida when i was a kid. I always loved that gun and still hope it gets passed down to me one day. I could have got it at Wal-Mart for $217+Tax but opted to use a small local shop in Murphy N.C..He couldnt beat Wal-Marts price but he came close enough for me and sold me one for $239+Tax. Took the boys out to shoot it the past two days and i must say this one is every bit as fun and reliable as the one i learned to shoot on. I put my NC start Holographic reflex sight on it and got it dialed in and i must say it is more accurate than i though it would be. And that is with the cheap Remington Bulk 550 pack.

Similar story here when I was growing up. The 10-22 has always been in the family it seems. My kids grew up shooting them, and now my grandkids will be soon.

Most folks that own them report of better precision than what others say who dont own them.

Go figure....

Great purchase. They are affordable and a ball to shoot. Y'all enjoy!

I first learned to shoot at 9 years old with a Winchester 62 .22 'gallery gun' on the farm.

This is a Rossi version of the Winchester... I must buy one of these! lol....

Ruger 10/22 at 300 yards...

My first 22 was a 10/22, that was back when the carbine model came with walnut stocks, aluminum butt plate and barrel band. They have increasingly gone to plastics...which is...maybe a good thing...

sometimes I miss the old school stuff...go figure...

We usally get the stailess steel ones for 189.00 at BI-Mart around here. They go on sale about every 6 to 8 weeks.

Thumbs up

10-22 is one of the best .22 Rifles ever designed in my Opinion. I've owned a few.
Thanks for supporting your local Gun Shop.

The 10/22 was the first rifle I gave my son whn he was 9. Now he's 27 and tricked it out, 180 yards is lights out for him. I can't see that far like I used to.

Have fun with that puppy.

I got one when I turned 13, now 46. I sold way back when money was tight - like a fool, but was able to purchase my brother's. I dressed her up a little bit. Replaced the barrel with a Tactical Solutions barrel and Hogue Over-molded stock. The stock is nice the gun fits me much better, but my daughter can't properly shoulder it. I realized the biggest issue with accuracy for me was the heavy trigger pull. I bought the Volq. trigger parts kit (not the full trigger) (I think it was $29 - $49). Installation was fairly easy and it really slicked up the trigger pull and my groups. My scope is a Leupold Var-X II 3x9 that I had laying around. Next, I'd like a suppressor for my barrel - probably will never happen but I can dream.

Great guns either out of the box or dressed-up. Regardless if your trigger isn't to your liking, I can recommend the Volq. kit.
