Hi All... Name is Art and I'm from Santa Maria, California. Just purchased my first Ruger 10/22 rifle and will take delivery on the 14th. I have a friend with an AR-15 and my father in law is an avid duck hunter so I've gone trap/skeet shooting with him a bunch, but this is my first gun purchase. I'm really looking forward to getting out on the range with this thing and am already overwhelmed with all the possible accessories. I look forward to engaging in conversations here on this board and maybe shooting with a few of you down the road.
