    Talk to me about the Ruger 10/22

    I'm thinking of getting a Ruger 10/22. Any opinions on it? I've heard good things so far.

    Which one?

    A Mark III would be nice.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The 10/22 is probably the best all around .22 LR semi-automatic on the market. I have one, and I use it regularly for all manner of small game hunting, general target shooting, and it can even be used for home defense. One .22 won't stop a man all by itself, but 100 round magazines are available for the 10/22 and it can be fired at a rate of about 5 rounds a second by a practiced shooter.

    Dont have one of those but I have a mini 14 and I love it.. Ruger makes some great firearms.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    I have heard a lot of mixed opinions about these rifles. I have never shot one, so cannot speak from first hand perspectives.

    That said, Thompson Center's 22 rifle is an absolute tack driver. For the money, perhaps the best 22 on the planet... but still not inexpensive at something like $350. It is, however, phenomenally accurate.

    Another, lower cost alternative is the Remington 597. I will not buy Remington on principle, but I have shot this rifle and was holding 1" groups at 100 yards on a bipod with no effort. I was impressed.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.

    I've had a couple Rugers- a 9mm and a .357.
    Both good guns.

    Both the 10/22 rifle and the Mark series pistol are recommended (well, not recommended exactly, but used in competition, which is more convincing to me) by the U.S. Olympic Team. Don't know what more you need to know. Except that the company has a sterling reputation for quality.

    Don't have a 10/22 as I get by with an old rifle I got from my father, and sentiment trumps all. That said, I do love putting thirty rounds in a two liter bottle from fifty yeards just because the Ruger Mark II and I can. If you can put a bullet right where you want it, the .22 LR round and a Ruger are in my opinion the way to do it.
