First Rifle

I am going to buy a Ruger 10-22 at wal-mart tomorrow. Unfortunately not the special edition one they used to sell, but the guy that I spoke to on the phone who works in sporting goods says he bought the last one he saw about 2-3 years ago and may sell it. If not then it'll just be the stainless barrel and synthetic black stock. I plan on getting a 25 round mag asap and a KIDD trigger upgrade if everything I've read deems true. I want to get good with the iron sights then invest in optics when I exceed my visions capabilities. I can't wait

OBAMA

It will look like this:

Thinking about picking up a .22 for fun times in my yard.
Are you just doing target shooting?
Still debating between a bolt action and lever action.

ehhhhhhh....

Truth is the 10-22's that are shipped to walmart are a subpar lot. They are a special buy and really dony meet the QC standards of the ones sold to real gun shops.

I bought one a while back..... sucked so bad it wasent funny.

I do have a used hogue stock (for the non take down rifle) and a 50 round black dog drum if your interested. $100+ shipping.

If you have a DICKS or Gander Mtn in your area they should price match Walmart. Gander did it for me when buying my LCP (some little tackle shop was selling them for $280).

10/22 is the standard.

Check out the take down model!

Pretty neat...

I've got the Takedown on order, just waiting for delivery. I just didn't realize that Walmart sold them.

p.s. There is a local company that makes integrally suppressed barrels for the takedown!

Have the takedown, literally no differnce between quality and accuracy between the takedown and the standard as I have both. Spend the few extra bucks and get the take down.

I recently ordered the Henry Survival rifle for a customer and i got one for myself as well. ( its a bad habit when your in the gun biz). I was truthfully amazed at the accuracy of the Henry. i have had and sold many 10/22 all types from the base models to the take down model and they are great rifles accurate and fun to plink with all day long. However for a compact, rugged, accurate rifle i would take the Henry over the 10/22 TD any day. Plus the Henry floats!!

I'd avoid those barrels. You can lead a silencer up FAST and those are a PITA to clean IFFF you can clean them at all. You also have to watch what ammo you use, ususally they dont work well with weaker loads. I've seen them that only performed well with stingers. IMHO buying a HOT (and expensive) round just to bleed off the pressure to subsonic levels is kinda stupid.

Thread for 1/2x28 and use a can like the SS sparrow, much longer life with multiple host options and better range of ammo.

You got that right! It's one of the few semi auto .22's that will reliabily feed and eject powderless ammo. It could use a better trigger and better materials but afterall its just a cheap behind the seat rifle. For all there faults they are great little weapons with better accuracy then your box stock 10-22.

If I could have my choice, id take the AR7.

sorry i didnt realize I posted a pic of the take down model. It will be a standard carbine 10/22 with a stainless barrel and black synthetic stock.

Walmart gets the same quality as any gun shop gets...it's a topic beaten to death on actual rimfire forums

My approval for the purchase has been delayed until next week. I assume it was because of a prior arrest (no conviction). Should hear back from them by the 13th.

In the mean time I have ordered two 25-round ruger mags and that sketchy crank hot lips easy loader.......can't wait! it's going to be a long week/weekend

will post pics when I get it and of any mods I do to it

I have gone through about 1000 rounds flawlessly thus far. I think it's a great gun and love plinking with it. Still working on using the factory iron sights accurately.

I am also in the market for my second gun and first handgun. I will consider a ruger 22/45 if I find one with the cocobolo grips for a good price. Other than that I want a cheap full size 9mm, such as glock 17, s&w m&p9, or a cz-75b (although reconsidering this last option because I'm a lefty)

Here's a pic of my 10/22
