    Seeing as "gun" is the new four letter word in the media these days, it sure is nice to see some positive conversation about it. I don't have anything to add about the .22 handgun as I don't know much about .22 handguns, but for a rifle I'd go with the Ruger 10/22 also.

    You had no way of knowing this, but I stood by helplessly and watched the First Amendment die yesterday at work. I have no intention to let the Second Amendment die this week as well!!!!!

    The Ruger 10/22 rifle is getting a lot of positive comments here and among some other friends. I think I will eventually be going with [meme://whynotboth.jpg] anyway. There are several ranges around here with rental guns. I think I'll visit a range and try out a 10/22, and I'll probably end up buying one. Then once I'm comfortable with that and I've got a relationship with the people at that range, take some of their training classes and think about an SR22.

    As a Savage 64 FXP owner myself (and Ruger semi-fanboy), I do find the 10/22 ergonomics weird, if not dumb. I think it's the USB connector of firearms. But mags are cheap and aftermarket support is great if you're into that

    Speaking from experience, 10/22's can have a neat party trick:





    Ergonomics are kinda weird but you get used to them.

    Well, that's the idea behind renting one first, by Uwe's recommendation among others.

    I might like to have a scope, but beyond that I don't think I'll be adding a bunch of tacticool trinkets.

    Is that the 10/22 Breakdown variant? How do you like it... is it worth the extra money?

    Yep, I like the takedown for its compact storage and it's just plain neat. There is about $100-150 premium for that feature so might not be worth it for everyone. Then again, there doesn't seem to be any downside in terms of repeatability or accuracy compared to regular 10/22 models. Most aftermarket stuff works on takedowns other than barrels. One thing to keep in mind with 10/22's is it's darn hard to keep them un-modded. Every single part of the gun including the receiver has multiple aftermarket sources all claiming better and enhanced this or that. With the Savage 64, you are protected from this temptation by the lack of aftermarket parts.

    BTW, here are some more pics from my Appleseed shoot:

    Even if you don't even own a gun, I highly recommend going . They will lend you everything you need:

    And stocks. At least not w/o lots of modification.
