When I was a little boy my grandmother told me to never say never. I should have listened. I recently purchased a Ruger American.22 LR. I mounted a Bushnell 3.5-10x rimfire scope. It is one of the most accurate .22’s I’ve ever had! I still don’t like plastic except on a AR but I like this one. Now I’m reconsidering the Ruger American in 6.5 Creedmoor I saw the other day.
