The question is: "How many does a person need?"

I have 4 kids, 4 grand kids, and 1 great grand kid. As of last night, I only had 6 of the Ruger 10/22's. As of this morning, I placed an order for this baby:



So, by mid week, I'll have 7 of them, (not counting the 2 my wife and I own) and by my count, I'll still be short by 2. My wife thinks I've about maxed out on them, so I'm turning to you folks to give me an honest, unbiased opinion.

Thanking you ahead of time.

I had one, that I fully accurized for myself. My middle son loved it, so I built up and tricked out one for him too. My oldest son, I bought him a takedown for travelling. It was a present for him helping out so much while I was recovering from shoulder surgery. At some point "my" 10/22 got put in a cut down purple stock for my daughter, who was 5 years old at the time. She is 10 now. Finally last fall I realized I was never getting it back, so that is when I built my full blown Kidd 10/22 for me. That makes 4 for the 4 of us.

Currently no grandkids, so I am caught up.

Every person, no matter age, needs a good 22 RF of some kind. Just a good common sense gun rule.

The problem is that somewhere along the way you got behind the power curve and are now having to play catch up. That is never a good position to bargain from. It takes too much negotiating collateral.

Heck, .22s in general fit all the qualifications above. Currently I am collecting .22 SA revolvers for my grand-kids. My kids may be about through having kids (who knows) I have 5 now and another due in May. 10/22s are next. I have a pretty good start on .243 though as I am up to 4 of them. Gotta start em off right.

bronco71, my personal 10/22 is a a target model, and my wife has the take down. I'm still WAY behind the curve so I'll keep piling them into the safe! Thanks to all of you for the encouragement and suggestions! smile

The kids are old enough, but I can't even get them to buy their own booze when they come "home." 3 of the grand kids are old enough, but not inspired to buy anything but apps for their phones and accessories for their cars. The great grand son will be 1 year old in about a week, so maybe I can teach him how to buy ammo. . . wink
