RUGER 10/22 RIFLE
“The Ruger 10/22 is by far the most popular selling 10/22 rifle in America,” Sootch00 states at the beginning of the Father’s Day Gift Guide. In 2015 over 7 million were made, and we’ve lost track of how many more were made since then. There’s a number of different models, the one in this guide has a synthetic stock, viridian 3 x 9 scope that’s already mounted to the rifle. It also has the weaver rails at the top. and this comes out of the box ready to shoot.and it did not take a lot to sight this in. From your basic standard model to the tactical model to the takedown model, there are so many different options with the 10/22. Viridian makes excellent scopes and lasers.
This particular model comes in a really nice hard case, with the Ruger name on the front. And if you’re concerned about gun safety (and we all should); it is lockable. This will really protect and secure your firearm. At the range, this 10/22 rifle with synthetic stock is really lightweight, it’s about 5 1/2 lbs and that includes the scope. “There something satisfying about pulling the trigger on a small little rimfire like this, low muzzle report, low recoil, cheap to shoot, and yet a lot of fun!” – Sootch00.

AMMO STORAGE COMPONENTS – ASC
ASC makes high-quality AR -15 magazines. They actually make magazines for every caliber for the AR-15. I was introduced to ASC because I needed some 6.5 Grendal magazines. These are your standard magazines for 5.56 or .223, but these are stainless. I really like the stainless over the aluminum. The al is great and the US military uses them. but there’s something about the stainless that gives you just a little more heft, these seem light and flimsy compared to stainless. These are very well heat treated. The one big thing about your metal magazines, stainless or aluminum, is that they don’t swell under heat. and that’s one problem I’ve had with some mags and then they crack in the cold. With the metal mags, you’re not going to have those types of issues.

TRUGLO 1-8 x 24 OMNIA Scope – Perfect Optic for Tactical Carbines
Answering the needs of tactical carbine shooters, the TRUGLO OMNIA™ Series of tactical rifle scopes now includes a new 1-8×24 model. These low-power, variable scopes excel at fast acquisition of near-field targets, but also feature a ballistic-calibrated reticle and adjustable magnification for longer distance shooting at maximum magnification.
The OMNIA scope is now available in three versions: 1-4×24, 1-6×24, and the 1-8×24. All models include a detachable Quick-Zoom Lever for rapid transitions between magnification levels, even when wearing gloves. Each also includes a one-piece machined Picatinny rail mount that is ideal for AR-15 platforms. All are constructed from a one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum 30mm main tube and use multi-coated lenses for optimal clarity and contrast in low-light conditions.
Inside the OMNIA scope is the TRUGLO All-Purpose Tactical Reticle (A.P.T.R.). The illuminated, glass-etched A.P.T.R. combines several targeting methods in a single, clutter-free configuration. A large 12-MOA illuminated “peep ring” is designed for quick sight alignment on near targets. Centered within the peep ring are illuminated crosshairs optimized for a 50/200 yard zero (based on 55-grain XM193 ammo). The top of the crosshair provides a point-of-aim at 100 yards with the remaining subtensions calibrated for 300, 400, 500, and 600-yard bullet drop compensation. The scopes feature 1/2-MOA locking target turrets with slip-turret caps for a quick return-to-zero.
