    Ruger released a new bolt action rimfire yesterday.... the Ruger American Rimfire. It is based off of the Ruger American rifles and the 10/22. Takes the same mags as a 10/22, so you you can have 25 round mags, but in a bolt action. Take that NYS! I think this is on my list to get. I've wanted a...

    While my family has a few .22s, I lack my own. This is troublesome for me because everyone should have a .22. I really want one as a medium to bring gun-shy friends into the whole shooting world, and my other guns really aren't fit for a first time shooter. I think i'm also looking for an excuse...

    This has been one of the worst spring seasons I can remember. I've been rationing my .22lr and .17HMR because I refuse to pay $100 for a brick of .22s, but I miss shooting rimfires. Usually I've gone through a couple thousand rounds of .22 by this time of year; this year I think I've only used...

  9. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I have just read the text of the SAFE legislation and think I see in sect 23 C (definition of high-capacity mags) an exemption for rimfire and 22 pistols (10 OK), along with 50+ year old mags and guns. Has anyone seen any discussion of this? I searched and could not find any current threads...

    I was thinking of purchasing a competition .22 and Was wondering if anyone can help with a question i have. 1- Does anyone knows whether a .22 Long Competition Target Rifle with thumbhole stock is considered an "assault weapon" because of the thumbhole ... Or is rimfire totally exempt from this...

    First Look: .17 Win Super Mag Winchester is initially introducing three loads for the .17 Super Mag. These include a Varmint HV (high velocity) load using a 20 grain Plastic Tip bullet at a MV of 3000 fps (#S17W20), a Super-X load with a 20 grain JHP bullet at the same MV (#X17W20) and a...

    Does anyone know if the Mossberg 715T is legal in NY. They have different versions the 37201 has a fixed stock & 10 round mag. But I believe it also has a removable muzzle brake. Thanks

    Any tips to restore an old Mossberg? i already figure I will clean the wood with olive oil. Whats te best way to clean the old gunk and oil off of the metal, without damaging it? Recommendations for any cleaning/blueing products will be appreciated. Im more concerned with the rifle...

    Does anyone have one of these. Being 3.5lbs and having a detachable magazine outside the pistol grip, no go here, huh?
  17. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    What are your thoughts for most accuracy out of a 22 rimfire within 100 yards? Bought a great rimfire scope and it seems a bit of a waste sitting on top of a Ruger 10/22 with mannlicher (sp?) Factory stock. Any great 22 bolt action recs out there? Best ammo?

    Just curious and hoping someone near me might have a 60's era Model 2 I might be able to check out. I have a 1970 Model 5 myself. DW
