Hello from the Oregon coast! I, too, just received my invite to join this forum. I have 2 Rugers, a 10/22 TD and an SR22. My wife also has an SR22. We enjoy shooting our 22's in the backyard (backed up to hillside in an unincorporated area). We have other guns but those aren't the fun Rugers. I haven't had the opportunity to really stretch the 10/22's legs yet, only fired about 50 rounds so far, but, summer is on the way (I think). I'll also be shooting some black powder this summer with a Pietta Colt Navy .36 and an NAA .22 magnum cap and ball. Looks to be a fun summer ahead.
