in the woods people would be only able to fire their non-restricted. most of the people in this thread seem to have restricteds so we'd need to find a range.

The standard 10/22 ranges anywhere from $299-$349, if you can find them in stock. I had to wait 6 weeks for mine to come in. Tacticool stocks are $100-$180, then you have the 16" barrel and muzzle break included. All said and done, it's pretty much where a tacticool 10/22 should be, all without having to bed the receiver in the stock yourself because Ruger already did it.

Overall, I thought longer term and why not?
I guess so... Better start saving up.

Oh! I dropped by my local gun/hunting store today, and I tried out a Savage Mark II - not sure which version it was. But that's one nice .22! The Mossberg feels fine without the cheesy 25-round mag - the mag rattles in the plastic "AR"-style housing and feels super cheap/plasticy. But it feels light and nowhere near as solid as the Ruger 10/22 or the Savage Mark II they had there. There was also a Marlin XT-22R and that was one nice gun... smexy with the stainless barrel.

No, I mean the Mossberg 702 had the 25-round "AR" .22 mag in it. Felt super cheesy.

Damn, thanks for the link. That is a really good price for the Mark II F! I will see if I can get my friend to buy it as I'm still waiting on my PAL to be mailed to me... I just finished the course and mailed the application.

I ordered mine from a shop in Ladner called Taccessories.
Here's the link to their target page.

Targets : Taccessories Canada, Tactical Hunting and Shooting Accessories, Grips, Stocks, Knives, Flashlights, Firearm Accessories

I learned that there is a ton of force acting on the target and frame when it's hit with a round. I've had pieces of FMJ embedded in the steel legs, and shredded the airplane spec wire with flak. PVC wouldn't last very long seeing as my steel legs are taking a beating.

Imho, use steel legs and chain for the AR500 target. Or snag one of those self healing targets from International. They're sexy, and for $150 they're around the same price as mine cost.

Thanks man!
I grabbed this from Canadian Tire last year. Probably the best $79 I've spent (other than ammo ). It's only good for rimfire, but it's a lot of fun for the 10/22, and the 1911-22.

ugh, the 715T.
It looks cool, but once you strip off all the plastic you see that it's nothing more than a cheap stamped receiver, barrel, and trigger. Even the trigger set is cheaply made. The buffer falls out of place while shooting, causing FTE and FTF issues. It's a toy at best.

That said, I spent almost 2 hours on my dad's 715T and it works like a charm now. I filed and polished the sear and trigger set, and made some fine adjustments to the feed ramp. Still, it took 2 hours to make this gun work. Spend the same time on a 10/22, and it will plink at 100 yards all day long.




Now where's my 9mm registration?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Stupid soft waiting period..... I want to shoot this f'king thing!

Have a good one man!
I'm playing hockey tonight, or else I'd head out too. I'm thinking that tomorrow I'll get my buddy out. I owe him a shooting day for his past b'day that I missed.

S&B is one of the most underrated ammunition available. I find the quality to be spot on with the price I pay for it.

i'd be interested in a 1000 round case of .44 magnum 240gr JSP S&B if the price was right

Another day of spending. I hit both Italian Sporting and International to check out their sales. Picked up a variety of goods, including an SKS, some ammo, another scope, and other goods. Going to go and clean the SKS now

I really recommend Taccessories, I emailed them asking if I could pick up some stuff instead of having to ship it so it would save me the shipping cost. He was more than happy to do it.
