Nothing spectacular this year for Bag Day, but I filled an important niche on my gun list that's needed filling for a while. When my Daughter moved out on her own, our Marlin 60 went with her. That left us with only one gun chambered in .22 - the little Heritage Rough Rider single action pistol.
That just won't do. A .22 rifle is important to have, not only because it is a fun, inexpensive way to scratch your shooting itch and work on your long gun technique, but also because it's a great general purpose small game weapon. I thought about replacing the Marlin 60 with an identical one... but our local Cabela's had a sale on a synthetic stocked Ruger 10/22 that I just couldn't pass up.
I like it, a lot. I don't think I'll go for the long extended magazines, though I'll probably pick up some additional factory 10 round rotary mags.
