After talking to my friend, I have been thinking of buying a new Ruger 10/22 so we can go plinking. (She hates my little shorty Nagant) Here in lies the problem. I have this nasty habit of modifying my firearms, and lord knows that the 10/22 is probably one of the easiest to find parts for and modify. Should I just give into my habit and get one? or get a different model? I can say that I fought bravely the urge to buy the one I found at Big 5 for 170 bucks tonight, but it took every ounce of control to walk out the door empty handed.
