    New plinker!

    I don't know why I waited so long to pick one of these up! .22 is sooooooo freaking cheap! And yes...the scope is the scope is overkill :)

    Sorry for the crappy pic quality. Not sure what happened, my iPhone is usually pretty good.

    LOL. That's just mean, Pgrass!

    Okay, my turn; Which weighs more? The scope or the rifle?

    'Just funnin' ya, Rollo. Everybody needs at least one .22. For fun, try to find a box of .22 longs (not long rifle). They're so quiet, it'll sound like you're shooting an air rifle. BTW, is that a Marlin?

    Take the sunshade off that scope and it won't look so much like a B-movie prop. But the rifle looks kinda' familiar. What kind IS it?

    Honestly, congratulations on buying what may possibly be the most happily accessorized rifle in the world. Everyone should own at LEAST one of 'em (and parts scattered-around for two or three more). As for ammo cost, any trigger time is still trigger time!

    Nice :) yes, over-scoped, but still nice :)

    I love shooting .22LR... I feed my 15-22 at least a couple thousand rounds a month for very little money.

    Enjoy that new toy Rollo !!

    Rollo, I'm not so sure that scope is overkill. I took my old 10/22 that wouldn't group worth a lick any more, put a Butler Creek .920 barrel on it with a Hogue overmolded stock, and a BSA "Sweet .22" scope. The thing is scary acurate ow!

    The boys over at rimfirecentral.com know the 10/22 like a bo-weevil knows cotton. But be warned, there's a common infectious disease associate with that little Ruger carbine "Rugerous Modificus". It's when you, over time, spend so much money customizing a 10/22 that you could've have bought a new...Anschutz SuperMatch 54! Be careful.

    Everybody needs a 22 or a couple.
    The ammo is CHEAP
    Love the scope on yours.

    ...or, "could have bought and modified four more 10/22s" like some folks have done (ahem)

    Everyone has got to have at least one 22

    That's a pretty nice rifle that you have on that scope.
