Just purchased my first 10-22, actually, I just bought my first firearm in May when I got my CCP, now I have 10 guns, this is a sickness. For my first 22, well, actually my second, my father-in-law gave me a older 22, tube mag that I haven't investigated yet. My ruger is a stainless target model, 20", came with no sights so I installed a red dot and just got it sighted in the other day. I'm using it for 22 match night at my local range. Any other mods that anybody suggests? It has a nice trigger feel, stock maybe about 1 inch to long but other than that it feels nice.

BTW, the match shoot is 75 feet and 5 different steel targets and timed against others. I fall right in the middle of the pack with 22 pistol and using my 45 for combat shoot nights but since I haven't shot a rifle since I was 12 which was almost 35 years ago I don't have to high of expectations my fist week :rolleyes:

Shootin' is like riding a bicyle. Once you learn you never forget.

+1 ... I was surprised how well I did after a 14 year layoff. Never going to allow another layoff though. :eek:

Well, I should have mentioned shooting a long gun instead cuz it was a shotgun back then. I have been into pistols since May and this is my first rifle to shoot. I have a natural knack for a pistol but being heavily left eye dominate the rifle is going to be harder.

Not really.

You may remember how to make it go bang, but not the nuances of safety and accurate shooting. :eek:
