About a year ago I was given an early 1970's what I think is walnut ruger 10/22. This thing is in perfect condition,with a weaver scope on top. The back story is it belonged to my FIL's FIL. He was recently placed into a home, and when my FIL was cleaning out the house, he found it in the top of a closet with all the paperwork and bill of sale in a nice case. The thing is super SUPER clean. To keep this short, my son is turning 13 in about a month and the other day I happened to glance at it in the safe and got the idea to clean it up and give it to him for his birthday. As I started thinking about it, I wondered if I was going to give him a .22 should I just trade it in to the LGS and throw down a few hundred and pick him up one of those 15/22 S&w's. Anyone shoot both? HOTHEAD Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
