Oh my, I am officially excited about this.
It comes as no surprise to anyone that I am a huge .22LR fan...Especially when it comes to the Ruger 10/22. I have been a true believer in the Ruger 10/22 for years,due to it's functionality, it's durability, it's reliability, and the endless number of options, variations, and accessories that are available for them. As a survival/ outdoorsman's rifle, the 10/22 has always been a viable choice. One thing I have always thought would be a great idea was for a mass produced conversion kit to change the mounting blocks on the barrel as so to make the rifle into a take down pack gun.
Ruger Co. has done one better. They have now officially announced the new 10/22 TakeDown Rifle. I see endless possibilities for this gun. I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on one for a few hours on target as well as taking it out camping.
If Ruger has order filling issues now, wait until this little baby catches on.

I know. It's been well over a month since my last blog post. But I simply have not had the time or the inclination to post anything new. Very soon I hope to review the new 20 inch AR-15 that I built from Del-Ton components, as well as a couple of other little projects.
With access to a new range coming soon, I will be doing some serious shooting, which I hope will supply me with plenty of writing material.
I was browsing my regular firearms related websites this evening when I ran across this little news story.
"Ruger Stops Accepting Firearms Orders"
Apparently, the run on firearms and ammunition has already begun, even though the election is still months away. I remember the run back in 2008, and it was not pretty.
This time, we may actually have something to really worry about.
We are in the middle of one of the most Anti-Gun, anti-self defense, anti-freedom administrations in the history of the US. If Obama does manage to get re-elected ( which I believe is a very real possiblity) he WILL make a move on firearms. He has been quoted multiple times as saying that he WILL work towards gun control, even if it is under the radar.
Now whether or not this order freeze by Ruger Corp. is legit or simply a ploy to drive up demand, I do not know. But I can tell you now, that months after the 2008 election, ammo and tactical rifles of all makes and model were not to be had in shape or form.
I would suggest to anyone considering a gun purchase to do it now.
