    A couple of weeks ago I came in here looking for some advice about a first rifle for me. Well I actually haven't buy one yet but my wife just got me one as a present. I know is only a 22 LR but hey she gave it to me, I'm happy :D

    Ruger 10/22 10 shots mag, 25 shots mag and the case, SWEET!!!! I just want it to let you guys know about my first rifle (that I own) So if anybody needs me I'll be at the range. Here is a picture

    Nice situation!!

    Highfive--Congrats on having a sensible wife, and on having received a very nice present.
    But that is what everybody should have, for practice. Sight picture, breathe, squeeeeze the trigger. Enjoy your shooting!

    You can always buy more/larger caliber rifles. But nothing beats a .22 for practice--cheap ammo, low recoil, just plain fun. No need to apologize to anyone ever for having and using one.

    And BTW, the 10/22 is a very nice platform for tricking-out should you want to--all sorts of retro stuff you can buy to hang on one!

    I don't see any downside at all to this! :)

    I have an AR with a CZ .22lr upper on it. I shoot it more than all of my AR's combined. It is a blast to practice with and it doesn't get my dog all riled up from the loud banging (she hates gunfire).

    Like mentioned above, there are several benefits to having the rifle you got. I beleive NO gun collection should be without at least one .22lr in it.

    Nice gun! They are a load of fun to shoot, and you can get cheap plinking ammo for about $5-6 per 550 rounds.

    Your one lucky man too by the way :)

    ^^^ I was wondering that too. Because I got my ammo at wally world for $9.88 for 550 rounds. By the way it was awesome to shoot. I just came back from the range, I loved it and so did my wife. I just hope I won't lose the rifle now, lol :eek: And that rifle looks awesome. Maybe later I'll be doing something of course when I learn more about it. have fun

    Good choice

    Congrats. Your wife has excellent taste in firearms. :) The first firearm that I ever bought with my own money was a 10/22 when I was about 15. I can't count the number of rounds I put through it hunting rabbits, squirrels, and yes...... the ubiquitous pop can! It's still in my gun cabinet today and with any luck I will pass it on to my grandkids.
