The versatility of this gun is awesome, its like being a kid in a toy store again. There are so many things to buy for this gun, if you are not careful, it can get out of hand. I was going to buy the remington 552 speedmaster, but a friend told me about the ruger 10/22, of which I am very greatful, have enjoyed it ever since. This forum has been great source of information. Has anyone else had problems explaining the need for purchasing things for this gun to their wives or am I the only lucky one.
