Love the track suit. 

Was quite tough to find a classic Addidas... especially in that color. 

At first I felt really wrong and dirty wearing it and wife would not talk to me.... but it is comfortable. Lol

Nice vid!  So a Hogue overmolded stock or an Archangel QBD stock would work?!  I'm sold on the trigger and sights.  Based on what you said the Archangel QBD would/could make it a take down and could also use a bull barrel, but that might be awkward with such a small and light stock and a heavy barrel.  I'd stick with the tapered, short carbine one.   I am sure that the Thompson will come out in some other colors besides OD and be quite popular with its stock features.   Thompson should offer a twofer discount and these would make nice gifts.   I will have to check out that video you mentioned that compares the two as the Thompson's  ability to tap into the 10/22 aftermarket products will make it quite versatile.  I wonder when the Mini 14 and Mini 30 patents are up.

Whoa... did not know about the ARchangel QDB.... going to reach out...

So TC did announce a few other TCR22s at NRA... They have the Blued with FDE w/ Black Grit finish and also a very nice hardwood stock one.  Brings up the weight to 5.1 lbs from 4.4

There is also the performance center version...

I wanted a take-down Ruger but didn't want to spend the cash on one.   I was pleased when I saw Promag's new stock.  I have a QBD stock that I picked up for $105 at CenterFireGuns (https://www.centerfireguns.com/promag-arch-qd-breakdown-stock-10-22-blk-aaqbd.html) and it isn't perfect, but I like it for what it is; it is well-made and works well.  To have a take-down for a Benjamin I couldn't be happier.   I have seen it at a lot of prices from $130 up to about $190.   I don't think I would pay more than say $130 for it...  It is on the smallish side, but hey, that's what a take-down stock is for.  If I lived in free America it would easily fit in a backpack when venturing out and it seems to have a smaller footprint than a 10/22 Take-down with a carbine 10/22 barrel.   A mounted scope holds its zero when broken down and put together.   Those two little bolts that hold the barrel on can be a pain to take off the stock Ruger. 

I will be interested in seeing if and what the second generation QBD stock will be like.    Many online vendors don't want to ship it to NJ, as they consider it a "folding" stock.   I would have thought that it would have been more popular by now, and, it is perfect for "recycling" an old 10/22.    It is suppose to function equally with the bull barrel or tapered carbine, but I think the shorter carbine barrel is more suited to its little footprint and purpose.   A take-down 22, whether this or a Papoose, should be standard in anyone's battery of arms.  Maybe the new AR7s by Henry are OK, but the older Charter Arms ones aren't too good.  Lastly, there are millions of regular 10/22s and maybe not as many take-down ones, and I am not sure if all the parts are similar and the standard 10/22 would get my vote with MORE parts availability. 

Thompson should connect with ARchangel on this.   And if they do well, maybe they can send me a copy of their joint product to test. :)

The Hardwood Stock version on the TCR22 might be nice and I would be interested.  If  i was in the market for a  Ruger 10/22, I would definitely opt for the TCR22, as you certainly could not get those upgrades on a standard Ruger at that price point! 

The QBD might not be as comfortable as the standard Thompson stock, but would work nicely for specific applications. 

Many people don't like the rotary Ruger magazines, but I love the fact that they are flush.  I love the fact that the TCR22 also uses them ad that you also haven the bolt-open option with their magazines and that there is a place to ad a bipod.  

They need to stop coming out with new guns and/or I need to find a better way of replacing older ones.  :)

      Looking for decent priced new or used 10/22 takedown, would also consider standard 10/22 if the price is right. Send me a message if you’re looking to sell. 
      Preferably cherry hill area as I’m not looking to drive for hours

      I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this scope?
      Cabela's has it for $99 on sale from $189. Doesn't come with any rings. Was going to grab some Warne steel rimfire rings with it.
      It's a 2-7 zoom. It's not made in the US, but Redfield from what I gather has good quality control.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      Has anyone used the Beretta U22 Neos? What do you think?
      I've been a member of OBRPC for about a year now and have only participated in clay shooting.
      I'm thinking of now participating in things like OBRAMS and Speed on Steel.
      I would like to get a 22 handgun. I've seen a lot of rave reviews about the Ruger MKIII but I'm not sure if I want to spend that much money right now.
      If I buy a sub $400 gun right now, will I just want a Ruger down the road?
      Will something like the U22 or any other 22 handgun suffice for 2 years?
      Ok, I'm babbling now. I just got home from work and need to go to bed. I look forward to reading everyone's opinions when I wake up.

      I recently purchased the Ruger 10/22 Takedown. I have a scope available that I can put on it. need to get some rings for it though. As far as the rifle goes, I am not real happy with the sights. I found this, and it intrigued me as nice replacement. The issue being though, you mount the rear sight where the scope rail would mount. I have always been a fan of using true Iron Sights for my target practice. I dont really hunt, so mostly plinking. I could always still buy the rings, and keep them in the bag. and change over when needed. What are your thoughts about this kind of setup.

    • I vaguely recall it being covered... maybe in junior high? In a math class? My point was, it's barely covered at all. And not all parents are as good as yours (and mine). Except for my mortgage, like you... I pretty much operate debt-free. I don't even keep a credit card, just a debit card. Older, paid off car. It's lower stress, I find.
    • I would have to call in a air strike to hit that target
    • Went today for the first time to the "new" range. First off, it was PACKED.  There are 5? marked spaces (2 handicapped).  I parked behind my friend who was in the far right space, and I had 2 cars behind me.  At one point, there was a car next to me, plus cars parked along the edge of the lot - 11 or 12 cars I can remember, plus people coming and seeing how busy it was and leaving. There are 6 tables and 10 seats (at least one table has no seats for HC access).  However, since most of us are right handed, there are really only 6 spots for most shooters.  Yes, you can adapt and use the benches for lefties, but it is not in any way ideal.  Not sure how that could have been changed/improved while in the design phase, since the new setup is FAR superior to the previous single wooden bench, where a single person fidgeting around 20 ft away would screw you up at the other end (I've watched my crosshairs bounce 4" on target from that).  However, fewer spaces for shooters is kinda annoying.  ESPECIALLY since it would not have taken more than a few minutes of work with a bulldozer  to clear up space for 2-3 more shooting tables (imo, one to the left, 1-2 to the right, with a tiny bit of effort would have still left maintenance access on the right side) - even if they were not under the roof.  I suppose the biggest issue would have been the baffle, but again, I think it was a bit short sighted to only have 6 tables. I want to make some kind of support to temporarily attach to a table so a 2nd shooter can use the same table - thinking plywood with legs and clamps to attach it to the cement table so as to allow more trigger time without taking up two spots if it is busy. I'd say 50% of shooters were using centerfire rifles there today. The same rules I still don't understand about spinner type target placement only at the 25yd  berm are still in effect.  Guess golf balls are more fun anyway. I may have to pick up a small brush and dustpan, since there is no easy way to clean the ground, it is gonna get bad there quickly.  I'm curious how many tons of .22 brass they took out from under the old wooden structure.  There IS a dumpster, but no garbage cans like there used to be.  Probably for the better as some asshole woulda used it as a target stand anyway. Oh, and at least one old fudd who grumbled at the audacity of having to have his action open when calling the line cold.  So that is still the same...   I dunno if it was so busy because of allowing centerfire, a "warm" day for the month, a holiday, or a combination of all the above, but I was still impressed by the numbers today.  I only hope it isn't too busy all the time.  All the WMAs should have a 100yd rifle range as far as I'm concerned
    • I didn't learn "personal financial management" in school, it was instilled in me by my parents.  Today, my house is paid for, no student loan debt, an auto loan that will be paid in one year, and no credit card debt (I pay it off at the end of the billing cycle, if I can't afford it, I don't buy it).   I didn't know it was taught in schools today.
