Hello from Idaho! Learned to shoot with a 10/22, own a couple wheel guns, bought my girlfriend( now wife) a 10/22. Now I'm a dad of 2 awesome boys, all my gun money is spendt on other stuff. But my wife is kind enough to buy me an American 6.5 for fathers day. Love to shoot it every time. Fortunately I'm a machinist so I'm filling out my Form 1 for suppressor and I've been tinkering with other aspects of the gun.
