Found a nice used 10-22 and put down on it so it wouldn't get away. Could have got it for $149 out the door but had to settle for 149 plus tax on a layaway. Still not too bad. I'll work more overtime next two weeks.
Nothing fancy, just a plain 1996 model, but at least it doesn't have the plastic triggerguard of the latest ones.
I'll probably scope it. Low power, compact.

I've seen 10-22's kept for home defense a lot of times. Usually the folks just had nothing else. Not useless by any means.
I've shot them manually using cb longs, great quiet fun.
The folding stocks seemed a good idea, but they added too much weight.
Anybody try a pistol grip or cut down stock and legal overall length w/ a (detachable) bi-pod?

What can't you handle with a 10-22, a Redneck walking stick (singleshot 12), and a quad Browning .50 MG?

I truly love my 10/22 that I bought recently. It has a RFP model (synthetic stock). Hope you enjoy yours just as much as I have enjoyed mine!

God bless you.

Hey Rio!! You did the right thing, buying a 96 instead of a new one. Mine is from the 90s, and I wouldn't trade it for a new one, no way! Have fun shooting it stock for a while before you turn it into a Franken-Ruger. :)

Hey Luke,
No Franken-Rugers for me! I like factory original for the most part and I subscribe to the "keep it simple" principle.
I do have a Ruger rear sight leaf that is a peep, not a notch, and I may try that out.
I tried a folding stock once, didn't care for it.
No extended mags necessary for me. Don't need no rails.

I really enjoy mine, I didn't like the short stock it came with or the 10# trigger so I built it the way I wanted. It has had the bolt accurized by 3rd Millennium Engineering LLC in Kansas and they jeweled the bolt and pined the firing pin so it hits the shell the same every time and I added a Adams&Bennett 18" target barrel with a Bentz chamber, a Boyds SS Evolution stock in pepper laminate,a Simmons 3-9x40mm White tail Hunter scope with Burris Xtreem tactical rings and a Durasight Z2alloy picatinny rail base. And this thing is very deadly now and so much more accurate than it came from Ruger it has the Volquartsen Target hammer that gives a 3.5lb pull,a Volquartsen extended bolt handel and Stabilization unit on the end of the barrel and modified the bolt hold back lock.:D

This will probably make me sound like an ass, but if you need to put a $150 item on layaway maybe you don't really need it and should be working on some savings?

Yes it does. Rio, enjoy your new toy when you get it. I like mine fine just like it came out of the box, I only added a scope. But whatever floats your boat on the add ons, there are a bunch available.

Don't get me wrong, I hope you enjoy your new toy. I'm just channeling my inner Dave Ramsey...

Actually, he could be putting it on layaway because it is the responsible thing for him to do. According to Dave Ramsey, if he is on a budget that allows his income to be divided so much for this, that and putting something away in savings, his disposable money might not allow that purchase right now. Rather than dip into savings for it, which Ramsey would say not to do, he puts it on layaway and pays it out.

Either way, glad you found a good one. The one I bought in 94 has been nothing but reliable, even if it isn't my favorite rifle in terms of ergonomics. They are good, solid shooters.

Fair point other than the responsible part. Paying interest or layway fees on a toy is not something that screams responsibility. I don know the guy or really care, it is his (future) money. I won't cheer-lead it though.

41magsnub, It doesn't make you sound like an ass.
Actually I'm with you. I'm very careful with my money. That's one of the reasons I shop for bargains, and this 10-22 was a good deal at $149 plus tax.
There are no 'interest fees' on layaways at that pawnshop. Yes, I could have made a better cash deal, but the added 8% tax was the price I paid to make sure that rifle would not be sold out from under me while I scraped together the cash. Fair enough, and still a good deal.
I've got good credit - I could walk into any gun store and walk out with $1000's of dollars worth of 'toys'.
I choose not to.

I don't have a lot of $ left over after I care for my family and give a little away. I really wouldn't want to have a lot left over. There's people that need it more than me anyway.
I work hard, pay my bills, and don't make any apologies for shopping pawn shops, second-hand and thrift stores. That's more fun anyway.
I deplore materialistic show-offs who have to 'keep up with the people across the street' or buy $1000 guns simply to cheer themselves up or support their egos. You know who they are,the ones who say "those who die with the most toys win" and really believe it.

Here's the real riches, and offered freely -
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
