Those are all beautiful guns. I really like the Ruger American Rimfire and an attractive rifle like that really turns this wood loving girl's head.I had a 10/22 that ran perfectly well. Why would I need a bolt .22?
Then I got a suppressor. My perspective changed when I realized that the noisiest thing about a suppressed 10/22 was the action. So I went on the hunt for a bolt .22. I settled on the Ruger American Rimfire. I'm kind of a Ruger fan, and sure liked the idea that I could use all of the 10/22 mags that I'd bought over the years. No need to buy new mags? Sign me up!

As luck would have it, a buddy of mine and I went out to shoot .22s one day, he he brought along his RAR, but his was the Target model. As much as I like my RAR, and I most assuredly do, his was clearly more accurate than mine.
So when I sold a pistol a couple of weeks ago, I took the cash straight to the same dealer where my buddy had bought his and, lo and behold, a rifle just like his. I had to have it.

I'm still waiting on my scope, but I can't wait to shoot it!
