The first rifle I ever bought was a Ruger 10/22 in 1968. Back then you could buy 500rd of CCI Mini-mags for $5.95 - which I did every weekend and took to the hills around Louisville KY. Unfortunately, the girl I married in 1970 didn't like guns of any type around so I sold all I owned and haven't owned one since. Now I'm retired and looking to get back into plinking to fill some free time. I've looked at the 10/22 again - both the carbine and the takedown model. I admit I'm drawn to the takedown model, if for no other reason than the sheer gimickry. Looking for suggestions or cautions regarding either.

Welcome to the forum. Yep plinking with 22lr is a fun way to spend some time. I have two 22lr revolvers, 3 semi autos and two 22lr rifles. I can shoot for a couple hours and still not cost much in ammo. Nope 22lr isn't as cheap as it was years back but it still doesn't cost and arm and a leg for a brick.
Maybe you can get your wife to try shooting. She just might like it.

Welcome, AO. I've owned a 'plain-jane' 10/22 for forty years or so. The stock sights kinda suck, but a rimfire scope doesn't cost much. My (usually unheeded) suggestion is to get a simple wooden stock 10/22, play with it awhile, and then modify it as your spirit takes you. You don't need a takedown unless you want to carry it in your violin case.

I love the 10/22 . Love it.
Its accurate , and fun, higher capacity, and eats a lot of ammo.

But don't overlook a good bolt action .22 rifle either,

I'm partial to them, They tend to be very accurate and I seem to take my time shooting, and don't eat so much ammo, and have more fun with the ammo I do shoot.

Just sayin....

Welcome from Texas :tiphat:
Don't think you can make a bad decision on any model 10/22.
The only caution....
You could end up spend as much money (or more) accessorizing it as what you paid for it. :D

Welcome to the R/T !!

Enjoy our community...

If I was in the market for a 10/22...I would go with the take down model...mostly for back packing and camping.
