Greetings! I'm a longtime plinker, target shooter, and sometime hunter though the latter is getting difficult in NE Oklahoma. Currently I only have long guns; Ruger 10/22 semi-auto, 1940 Remington Model 11 16ga semi-auto full choke, and a recent acquisition of a Ruger 96/22 lever gun in .22 Magnum. Have played with centerfire and reloading with a Remington XP-100 pistol, but thats gone now; though now I'm kicking myself for selling the RCBS reloading stuff.

Have made a decent foray into Gunsmithing with the Ruger 10/22 including action modications, trigger mods, custom stock, and glass bedding for accuracy including installing bedding pillars, and then scopes and rings for that, as well as several previous .22 rimfires. Wound up with a 10/22 tack driver tuned specifically for CCI Velocitors, and that's all it gets fed. Current projects are some mods and restoration on the Remington M11, and preparing to give the Ruger 96/22 Magnum lever gun the same treatment I gave the 10/22, starting with the standard Ruger "20 pound" rimfire trigger group. The 96/22 will be tougher, as there's not the aftermarket parts support like with the 10/22.

I'm new here as a member on this forum, but have been cruising it for years. I've been on the Rimfire Central forums for almost a decade, and on The Highroad.org forum for a while too.

So Hello All, and I'm glad to be here!

Glad to be here. One of the reasons I joined after 'lurking' for years was that I realized you had a Ruger 96/22 expert here, AMMOe. I'm hoping to review a lot of his posts, and maybe solicit some advice after I've done my homework and am up to speed on past posts.
