I've been looking for a .22 for plinking and later down the road for my son to learn on. I was planning on buying a stock 10/22 and modding it as time goes on - piece by piece. I'm sure most of you 10/22 owners can relate. I saw the new 10/22 target tactical on Ruger's page and it got my interest. Has anyone held one of these? I know it's new but I assume they are out there somewhere already. Would it be beneficial to purchase this rifle at $500 or so and just be done with it? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
