After spending way too long thinking about it and putting it off, I have all but decided to pickup a 10/22 based pistol. It's not a superultraloudenboomer like some shoot here, but I wanted to see if it was for me before full committing to centerfire ammo that I don't already have. Right now the front runner is a $450 to my FFL used but "98%" Ruger Charger with Kidd 2.5 lb. trigger group, stock plastic trigger gruop, and Burris 2.5-7 pistol scope. The other thought is the TI Rebel with sidecharging handle. Here is the plan so far. Sell the pistol scope and the plastic trigger group and keep the kidd, or sell the kidd and send the plastic group to Brimstone. One stock barrel threaded and maybe setback for plinking, with a lightweight minimalistic stock and small red dot. One 8-10" 17hm2 barrel for hunting(from reading will only lose 1-200 fps, and the recoil impulse shouldn't effect the bolt enough to need a heavier handle etc), Third barrel would be a full 16"+ barrel for target and hunting. Rifle scope if I don't like the pistol scope, which I really don't think I will. After reading about the ATF's judgement on switching, I know that if I don't like it as a pistol, because it started as a pistol and is marked as such on the receiver, I can put a rifle barrel and stock on it legally. If anyone has comments or suggestions, please let me know.
