So on Wednesday I will be able to pick up my first rifle. Any suggestions on what I should buy? Like cleaning kits, accessories, etc.

Lots & lots of ammo. Why would you even think of cleaning it?

Tech Sights would be on my list, as well as extra Mags.

Just shoot the thing and have fun. You'll learn what you want soon enough

Extra mags for sure, I bought 5 of those Eagle ones, and they seem to work fine. You'll be zipping thru 10 rds in few seconds.

Do the bolt release mod. It was the best thing I did on my 10 22:punk:

I would recommend buying a variety (as well as a large amount) of ammo to try. Different guns like different ammo and its kinda fun testing the different types to find the best results.

You may wish to get a scope if you dont already have one and perhaps a cheap rest for if you will shoot off a bench...doesnt have to be anything fancy but if you shake like a leaf like I do, it really helps :)

Oh and earplugs! 22's are pretty quiet but you can be sure to have some dude sitting next to you at the range with a bloody howitzer.

Congrats on your purchase and have fun!

My 10/22 magazine loader is the best shooting accessory I have ever bought.

Lots of ammo. The 10/22 was my first rifle also. I went to the gun range with 200 rnds of ammo thinking I had way more than I needed. I was out of ammo in less than an hour. When me and my sons go we take upwards of 1500 rnds and its all gone in a few hours.

1. 22lr is cheap and it flies downrange FAST thats why so many say ammo.
2. extra magazines - it sucks using only one, if you dont want to wait from on-line seller; the Big 5's that carry a hunting dept (guns) has them for about $20
3. do your own trigger work, bolt hold open mod etc.
4. practice shooting & enjoy

if your near so cal we're doing a HUGE Night Shoot at Burro canyon check the LA sub forum - 4/30

if your stuck or need help PM me :D I wont make fun of you even if your gonna mall ninja your new rifle :shuriken:
