You do seem to be getting into it, (but that's a good thing).

Atty General Holder was not able to get all the guns he wanted to when he was in office.

Maybe you could give him a couple???

Just thinkin...
Consideration of limiting the power of the state, in favor of individual liberty, should be at the core of every law.

Actually, did a little wheelin' and dealin'. I took this in trade on the SP22. I didn't find it any more accurate than the S&W and not even close to the Charger.

It's another 10/22, but with the .920 barrel and the nicest trigger I've ever felt. It's kind of nice to be able to swap magazines between my two target guns.

Here's a comparison of the barrel size between the Takedown and the Target.

It's a 300 WSM.

I hope to use it for 200 yard steel shooting.

I've never been serious about target shooting until I got that Charger.
Then I picked up the white 10/22. First time I shot it, at 75 yards, I put 15 shots into the 10 ring with 8 X's
Suddenly I'm hooked.

When I saw the Striker, I forgot all about my "I have all I need" stance. I didn't even barter. I just grabbed it.

BTW The Charger is a magnet at the range. It always attracts attention.
The singles among us should pay attention. :bthumb: :)

have you shot it yet? Mine is in .308. The recoil will make you sit up and take notice.

Not yet. I know what to expect. I used to have a Contender chambered for 35 Remington. It weighed about half of what this does and wasn't ported.

I hope to get out either today or Saturday. Stay tuned!

ive got a few bits of brass for that
you really need to get a set of dies
and work up a load for that short barrel
that would be a fun project

That's the plan! I've managed to collect a box of empties from someone else. I need to order the dies. I have the 230 grain mold, but plan to get a 140 or 150 as well.
