    My 68 year old father, who I think is the best father and husband in the world, is desperate for a Ruger 10/22. He checked his local Academy stores and had Wal-Mart check for 10/22 rifles in other stores within a 500 mile radius. He can find NONE.

    He's the type who likes to pinch his pennies. He's waiting on Academy or Wal-Mart to bring back their $200 Ruger 10/22 rifles. I think he's in for a long wait.

    So, please, I need a favor....

    Can you please keep an eye out at your local Wal-Mart stores, Academy stores, LGS, anything for a BNIB Ruger 10/22 for around $200 or $250? Please?

    Went shopping 40 miles north of here at Kingville, Texas. Only Wally World in 80 miles that still has guns. No 10/22s or any semi-autos for that matter. Haven't had any since before Xmas that I can remember. Only 1 box of .32 ammo in the whole place. They did have plenty of Ruger Americans, some Savs, and Remmy bolt guns/shotguns.

    checked Corpus Christi area a couple of weeks ago for a Mossy 715T .22. Last one was sold that day. No 10/22s either. Same for They were advertizing them in the paper, but none were there. There were only S&W AR 15-22s and one was sold while I was there. There were no Rugers or Mossys and the guy said they woudl get sold as soon as they got them.

    Saw two guys walk in to the gunshow with a bouple of stainless 10/22s. I made a 2 bill offer on one with no box. Both got sold for 250 each. One old gun trader came buy and told the guy at the table next to me that he had sold a 10/22 for 450 freakin' dollars. I found it hard to believe, but with nothing out thete????

    My father just informed me that he purchased a Citadel .22 M1 Carbine. Therefore, my request is hereby withdrawn.

    As a result, I respectfully request that this thread be closed.
