    I see people here advising others not to get ripped off at Gander, so I'm just wondering if there's a better place to buy one? This is my first gun so I don't know enough to tell if a pawn shop gun is in good shape. :dunno:

    Wal-mart, if your local wallyworld still sells weapons. Most of them still sell guns here in Texas, so a standard little walnut stock 10/22 can be found quite easily.

    Mine came from Wal-mart, good price and no problems. Took it apart and put the unfired barrel and stock back in the box and started building.

    I think mine was $130 or so back when k-mart sold guns. Almost 7 years ago or so.

    I know this varies from state-to-state, but generally speaking, can I just go in there and buy one? Or do I need some sort of registration or license? Is there a waiting period or anything?

    I found this for Michigan.

    Just have to wait for the background to clear... My name (mainly last) isn't very common. I've been told that people with common names (Smith, Patterson, etc...) for the most part can take longer.

    You'll fill out the paperwork and hope it comes back right away. I've always had mine pass right away but my friends took 2 days recently

    man I've been having all kinds of problems with my 10/22 lately, granted its 15 years old but I just replaced the bolt handle, guide rod and recoil spring assembly and the fucker won't fully cycle like the spring is too strong for it, it also looks like it bent the guide rod after firing if a few times :(

    Sometimes at gun shows you'll also find them cheap. Most pawn shops will negotiate prices so don't settle on sticker.

    Look for ones with flaws in parts you know you'll be replacing, so you'll get it cheaper.

    I just bought one at WalMart for $182 before tax. WalMart is going to be the cheapest place to get a new 10/22, but look in pawn shops or gun shows for used ones. I wouldn't buy a new 10/22 at a gun store or gun show because the price is going to be higher...

    If you get the walmart special with nicer stock and longer barrel, the parts sell for a lot more than standard ones

    Basicly as long as the bolt and reciever are ok its a safe buy, because before its all said and done you will replace everything else.

    you go in.
    choose said gun.
    fill out some bs.
    pay.
    go to range
    sometimes you can get delayed.but it doesnt happened very often.
    bout 3-5 days.sometimes its sooner.
    i got delayed not too long ago.
    shop called me back the next day,saying i was approved.
    but that was real close to rifle season
