    Ruger 10/22 Shopping About As The Helicopter Money Will Fall

    Thinking I should acquire a rifle in 22LR. Leaning toward the Ruger, but will listen to alternatives. No real purpose except for plinking fun on the cheap. So many choice in that model...synthetic, wood furniture...takedown...target models at a big premium. Probably looking to keep it under 250-275. Would be adding a couple of ten round rotary drums also.
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself.

    Either the 10/22 or the Henry H001, depending on whether you think you would enjoy a semi auto or a lever action.

    I have both- I wouldn't get rid of either one- I guess I'm not much help, am I?

    I saw that the Henry was pretty competitive and I don't have a Henry yet. I already have a Winchester 1906 with the tubular magazine, and a Marlin and Rossi so probably will stay with a magazine fed rifle.

    I'd like a Henry, but in a larger caliber.

    I've thought about this idea too, and I would get the 10/22. Parts are everywhere, there is a ton of after market support and a lot of possible customizations you can do.

    This really sounds like too difficult of a choice to iron out. However, I'll help you out. Just send me your cash and I'll add it to my M9A1-22 fund. That way you know it will go to good use and you don't have to trouble yourself over those difficult decisions!

    I am actually thinking of a two fer...getting an AR pistol lower in conjunction with the 10/22 in order to take advantage of a discount with my FFL...

    You should check out the Thompson Center TC/R-22. It is better than the Ruger for features.

    I can't see going wrong with either the Ruger or the Henry. I have purchased both for grandson's. The Henry I did go with the larger loop on the lever so that gloved hands will fit if so desired. I do like the ability of the Henry to fire just about all of the .22 rounds and cycle well even when loaded with shorts.

    On the other hand the Ruger could give you head and wallet aches with all the different after market stocks and parts available...inexpensive as they may be they can run up to a tall investment in the long run .

    Ahem... I guess I'm forced to agree-

    I have a stock 10/22 with wood furniture. Accurate and plain fun. It brings the kid out in you!
