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.
