I just bought a Ruger 10/22 after searching through here and reading what everyone had to say on the subject. Now I have to wait 10 days before I can pick it up. I am planning on leaving it stock for a while. I want to learn how to shoot before upgrading it. That way I can better appreciate the differences between the stock and modified. The only thing that I want to get right away is optics. Do you guys know of a decent, and not overly expensive optic that would be good for a 10/22 and a newer shooter? I have done some shooting with friends, and rented guns from the range on a dozen or so occasions.
