Good morning from sunny St. A. I've been a Ruger owner/operator since 1966 when I bought a 10/22 from the most expensive gun store in Alachua County. Paid $69.95 for in and $10.00 for a brick of Win 22LRHP. Those were the days. Still have it - Still shoot it. I have other Rugers, too, but I still love the original.
