Didn't have a .22 and everyone says you need one so I just picked one up. $159.00. Now I will end up spending $1000 on accessories:bigeyes:

LOL ... my philosophy: a hundred-dollar shine on a three-dollar pair of shoes.

I have a Ruger 10/22 also, great little guns.

Ruger has morphed?

The Ruger 10/22 seems to have morphed from a good little gun
to a starting point for customization. Anyway, many people really
do enjoy choosing from the phenominal amount of aftermarket
parts and services to, in a manner of speaking, "create their own
custom one-of-a-kind" gun.

Good luck and have fun.

Great price! And yes! You will end up spending more on accessories than you did for the rifle itself and you will enjoy every second of it!

Not that we didn't catch it, we just see it as BLASHEMY!! lol to me its like heavily modifying a Mosin Nagant. It just isn't right. Likewise its just wrong to buy a 10/22 and not at the very least buy 2 25rd mags for it. Then maybe a better stock. Or build a stock! That's what I did. Then a scope or red dot helps. A quick mag release is essential to!

Be all of that as it may, I bought one in 1969 and it is still original. I still like to shoot it and kind of like the fact that it is still original in spite of all the gadgets that I could have put on it. I feel the need, at times, to get a barreled action and really trick it out, but this old one will remain the same.

Yeah a couple of New Orleans blankity blanks in the Louisiana legerslature introduced a bill to bann 'em here!
I read that a few days ago, blows my mind that some idiot wants to ban a 10/22.
You folks in LA need to get together and do a mass e-mail to your law makers and tell them to get their sierra together or your voting them out of office.

Sports Authority price matched Brass Pro Shop's sale price for me on a 10/22. It was only $10 less then their sale, but it's a viable option for those of us who don't have a BPS close. Thanks for the heads up on the sale! Spurred me to get another Ruger, which is never a bad thing, and I saved $10 extra.

Well I don't know about the rest of LA but my son and I are in the process of writing every listed House member in this state I've already got the addresses down 105 of them, tomorrow I'm going after the envelopes I do believe that between my son and myself we'll scronge up enough stamps. I also have the "form letter" written that we intend to send.

I'll have to join the ranks of those who didn't mod theirs. Mine is a walnut stocked carbine model that I got on a store closing sale about '78. I paid $50 for it, NIB. Added a $10 "wide screen" scope from a show and it's been shooting extremely well ever since.

I think about modding it, but then I figure the mods cost so much I might as well get another one from a show to start with and not worry about desecrating mine.

Does anyone here have the Mannlicher stocked rifle model? I'd love to have one of those, but I think that's pretty much in the collector's realm now.
