Wanting a gun that won’t make you cry when you swipe your card? Are you new to shooter and want to try shooting? Well the ruger 10/22 is the perfect gun no matter what side you fall under.
I got my first 10/22 from my dad for my 10th birthday, and I fell in love instantly, thanks dad! Since then I picked up two more. One that has a bull (heavy) barrel and a thumb-hole stock. Then a pink one for the girlfriend. 10/22 stands for how many rounds of .22 it can hold, 10. Now if you’re looking for a gun to take people breaking into your house out this isn’t the ideal gun for that. But if you’re looking for a awesome gun that won’t break the bank or wanting to get into shooting then this is perfect!
Depending on what model and colors you get a 10/22 will run around $400 and its worth every penny. It’s great gun to go plink soda cans or prairie dogs. You really can’t go wrong with it. Oh did I mention how fun it is!?
Well why is this the best gun for the new shooter? They best answers I can give you is its great to learn firearms safety and skills on. They can learn how to check if it’s safe, load the gun, trigger pull, I can go on forever. The other is it’s not gonna scare the shit out of the new shooter when they pull the trigger. Go ahead and give a new or first time shooter an Ak-47 or a 12 gauge, not a lot are gonna wanna shoot guns again. When I took my girl-friend shooting for her first time this is what I gave her. I could tell that she didn’t know a lot about shooting when she rested the butt of the stock on her shoulder and didn’t put it into her shoulder, after I showed her the basics she fell in love like I did. I even bought her a pink one like I said. Now if you’re looking for a gun for your kid this might not be the best gun depending how old they are. If the can’t properly hold the gun without any help then it’s not time for this one yet… I would tell you to go get a Henry youth model single shot .22, that’s what I learned on.
I can only find one downside to the 10/22 and that would be the ammo. You couldn’t find it! People were buying it off the shelf like it was not being made anymore. Now that the crazy buying is slowing down its a little easier to buy. Other than that I can’t find anything else wrong with it. It’s just a gun that everyone who shoots should own.
Worth the money: Yes!
Would I buy one again: Hell ya!
