    The Old Guys were down to the range on Monday for some plinking fun. I took my Ruger 10/22 Target. I have had it for decades and it has always been a good shooter. I put a Voquartsen trigger group in it a few years back and last year I went a little crazy and put a Weaver T36 scope on it to replace the Sweet 22 that had given good service. I know, way too much scope for what I do, but I always wanted to try it. I can see a fly crawling across the 100 yard target, I just can't hit it, ha. I had given the barrel a good cleaning over the winter and it takes a dozen or more shots before that barrel gets seasoned enough to hit consistently . Here is a five shot target at 50 yards using SK Standard Plus ammo. George, I gave up trying to hit the dime so I am now trying to hit a penny but you can see I missed it with every shot. If the wind is down and the shooter is on his game this little rifle will give you one inch groups at 100 yards and that pleases me to no end. Years ago I added about 1/32" to the pressure pad at the for-end of the stock and that reduced my groups and added to the consistency.

    No scope needed- I have hit 100 yards open sight, I have hit many bullseye 50 yards open sight.

    Nice shooting todd, But next time just move the penny onto the bullseye. That should take care of the penny.;)

    Nice looking rifle and I don't think it is way too much scope.
