20 years ago (wow time flies) I bought a 1.75 to 5 power scope for my Ruger 10/22 that cost as much as the rifle did. Don't buy crap from Wally World or whatever if you are interested in accuracy and repeatability.A rimfire rifle can be accurate out to 100 metres with the right setup so settle for that. The only work I had done was to hone the trigger group and buy good ammo (for years I could get the good Russian stuff but now I settle for the European stuff and if I am desperate I will shoot Gold Medal from Federal.Rimfires are fussy about their ammo so when you find something that works buy the case (5000 rounds?) if you can.

It's not about the truck and it is not about the distance traveled. Get out there with whatever you have, meet people and see things. Push the envelope of your comfort zone and live.
