Default Ruger 10/22 takedown

I found one of these today for $349, I did not pick it up but I think I should have. Just wanted some opinions. They will only sell me 100 rds of ammo even buying the gun.... I'm worried like everyone I won't be able to shoot it due no ammo, throwing money away?????

I still see the Rugers 10/22s on the shelves around here, but it is the same situation with ammo. .22LR can still be found, but in small quantities. I don't see the bulk boxes anymore. If you've got the cash to spend on one, you might as well. It's one more gun in the collection, and sooner or later the ammo will come back. Just gotta wait for all the guys with their Mossburg Plinkster and S&W 15/22s to stop grabbing it all up.

That's my theory. Once the ARs were gone guys started going after the tactical 22's. That's when the ammo started to disappear too.

Agreed, I just like the ruger but with ammo I'm good on pistol and 223, I was lucky and most of my stuff was done before the nonsense happened. I saw 9mm ammo for 40 bucks for 50 rds.... I think I will look for ammo and if I find it and they still have it I'll pick one up.... he had a few like u said. You've seen them around.

The 22 shortage pisses me off the most. The only reason I ever bought (few hundred at time) it was for the kids. Now it's not readily available, and the end result is less time spent with the boys shooting.

What's next .177 Pellets?

Any particular reason your looking at the takedown version other than availability? I'd suggest the carbine for just a plinker since it's easily $125ish cheaper when you can find one. Plus there's ton of aftermarket out there for it. I'm not sure what's available for the takedown but I doubt there's as much

Just in general. I prefer the stainless one but don't like the synthetic stock. Depending on what he wants/needs it for the wood stock with the blued receiver and barrel would be the cheapest. You can dump a ton of money into any of them before you know it
