    I would love to have an AK 47, but other than those two, I don't have any rifle lust.

    best magazine for the 10-22 is the BUTLER CREEK STEEL LIPS 25 round "banana magazine" these last so much longer than the normal Butler Creek mags. If you shop around (Try CDNNINVESTMENTS.com) you can find the Butler Creeks for under 22 dollars-the standard ones have dropped to about ten dollars.

    how is magazine capacity related to someone stealing your rifle? if they steal a rifle why not steal some hi cap mags-there are MILLIONS of them owned legally now

    Thanks for that info. What's your favorite ammo for it?

    the best magazine is the Ruger BX-25.

    yes, I have done my research.

    I disagree, the Ruger BX-25's are significantly better than Butler Creek's. But you'll be paying a little more then.

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    I would not buy one... I have thought about getting a gun for home protection in the past (when we lived in the US) but now?

    Anyway... if it came to Chinese invading I would probably join a militia or Army reserves and just flat out fight (as long as my kids were older).

    I know right, I cant buy > 10 round mags for my 10/22 in MD so I picked a couple up in PA. There's always a way to get around these ineffective "reasonable restrictions"

    10-22's need hi speed 22's. the BEST going is the winchester Grey box but they are pricey

    the CCI BLAZER (either the bricks of 10-boxes of 50 or the loose packed 525 or so) are the most trouble free for the 4 10-22's we shoot

    (a custom built Clark a custom built "Chief AJ" a standard and another custom rig I cannot recall who built)

    CCI Mini Mags!
    I used to compete in the chevy team challenge with that Clark or AJ and we used BC's

    the rugers were not available then

    there is another brand that is good-I will find it in a minute
