    I put the shotgun with sling next to my 88 10-22. It’s a narrow version, which seems to be plenty. IMG_6008.jpg

    I honestly didn’t realize that until I looked it up. Learn something new every day :)

    Maybe if we called them "moderators" here in the states it would be easier to get them.

    Shooters over here decided a few years ago that "silencer" had Hollywood/bad guy connotations, and the unwashed public disliked the idea

    So we refer to them as "moderators", because nobody objects to that.

    You do what you have to

    For airguns they're over the counter; for firearms they're 'on ticket' and have to be proofed

    Forgot to mention, Ruger has their own little specialized laser for the 1022, here is one, plus a 25 round magazine for $29.99 plus shipping. I do not own one but have played with one and they are fine, just like any low power laser. At 22 ranges at night or overcast days, not much difference in a $30 one and a $300 one. I shoot skunks at night about once or twice a year, usually with my 1911-22 suppressed but this laser on the 1022 would be great for that as well. Just put a clamp on light rail and the laser and any varmint in the yard or chicken coop is easy to dispatch.

    One of the fun things about lasers on a 22 is you can hip shoot or even shoot sideways or over your shoulder and hit targets. Probably do not want to teach the kids to do that. I learned it in law enforcement when you needed to shoot around corners without putting your face behind the gun. As long as you can take a tiny peek or even stick a mirror around the corner, the barrel of the gun and laser barely needs to be exposed to make hits. Pretty EZ and fun with a 22. Not so much with a 45 or 10mm. It also works well on rats at night, you can hold a flashlight in the off hand to locate the rat, and the gun anywhere, even at waist level, just as long as you can get the laser to get through other obstacles. Obviously, the safety issue comes first when your eye are not directly behind the gun, but fun.

    There is added fun when holding a long gun at the waist and getting hits, I have them on ARs. They do not replace anything, just an extra tool.

    The 1022 with subsonic ammo (CCI quiet, 710 fps) is pretty quiet without the suppressor and the Aquila 60 grain suppressed is really quiet without the need of a suppressor.

    Been doing business with the CDNN folks over 20 years, great company in Abilene, Texas. They are also a good source for AR uppers (including pistol uppers in 5.56, 300 BLK and 7.62 x 39) and all types of guns at good prices. Usually better than the well known on-line marketers.

    FWIW

    Really strange that info on my carbine doesn't turn up in a search by S/N. Even searching the list, mine (125-56053) isn't there!

    I’ve run across a lot of anomalies in regards to firearm SN vs date of mfg scenarios

    Idle question does anybody have any experience with (I don't remember whether it was magpul or promag) the 32 round mag or 55 round drum for the Ruger 1022?

    Sorry blue fox, that was "before my time"! I have recently heard of the 100 round drum.

    Actually I didn't mean it the way it came out! I meant I'm young to the 10/22 business...but I'm 66 in all other aspects!

    Oh I know. I have 2 of these in my safe. One is mine and one is for a grandson. Mine now has a scope that I need to take to the range to get sighted in. somewhere on here is (I think) a pic of it before the scope with a stock setup holding a double speedloader pouch for the 10 round magazines.
