    Oh I do love The Blue Press.

    The wife isn't as fond of it. LOL.

    When mine shows up the wife calls me and says my prono mag just arrived. By the way nice gun. Let us know how your shooting day went, and what you think of the take down Ruger.

    Did the rifle come in Multi cam, or did you have it done?

    I've been looking at getting one of these. Very interested to hear a report.

    Those were a limited release multicam from Ruger with the coyote bag. I wish I would have waited and got one of those. I have the black/stainless model. My front half is out at Hanging Tree Armory getting it cut down and threaded for an AAC Element 2.

    Too bad it was a limited run. Like the look better than the black/stainless.

    Keep a close eye on leading of barrel face and barrel itself. I have heard of and seen it happen with these...

    Mine does that too. :laugh: Then when the Playboy arrives she doesn't bother to tell me until she's had time to read it. :D

    As for the rifle, although the Takedown model looks pretty sweet, I just can't justify one yet. I already have three 10/22's that shoot just fine. Besides, ammo for it isn't as plentiful as it should be yet.

    Thanks! The case is really nice and I found I could fit the rifle, barrel, and 4 BX-25x2 inside the bag plus another 500 rounds in one of the outside pockets. The other pocket could probably hold about 250. It's a great setup and a blast to shoot. It is also really accurate with the iron sites.

    I get that! I always got Playboy for its literary content too!
    You guys should bring home a real porn mag just to show the wives how benign the BluePress is!
    Ditto on interest in how the little Ruger shoots!

    I was lucky to find one of the 10/22 threaded takedowns. I love it.

    There are several ways to put a multi-cam finish on your stainless 1022 TD
