Looked at a Charger over the weekend

Was at the local gun show and there was a Charger there. Older one with one piece laminate stock, mint condition. Had a bipod, a scope, carry bag, paperwork, cool looking flash hider on threaded barrel, all for a really good price. I looked at it, picked it up, fondled it, tried HARD to like it, figure what I would do with it and convince myself I needed it.............Nope, nothing......drew a blank. Just couldn't remotely find a use for it, for ME, other than to say I owned one. So I passed. Seemed nobody else gave it a passing glance either, as I saw nobody else even pick it up. Like I said, it was priced right to. I realize that it was EASY for Ruger to bring back, because it is just a 10/22 with a short barrel and diff stock...........but how many really WANTED these in lieu of another new offering.

Although also a limited market, if you wanted a "cool guy" pistol, why not do something similar to the XP100 Remington in a smaller centerfire catridge, with a rotary mag. Given the limited effective range of the 22LR, is a Charger really any BETTER, than a scoped, bull barrel Mark pistol? Other than the ability to put a bipod on it, why is a Charger a better option than a Mark............thoughts anybody? I know we don't always buy guns for practical uses, but really have a hard time finding one for this

When I bought mine it wasn't really a matter of finding a reason to buy one. I bought it with the intention of trying to improve the accuracy of my shooting. Everything I learn from firing one gun can be used while shooting another so if I learn something new while shooting this one, I have gained something from it.

And that's okay.

I got mine for fun. I hope to try some different stuff with it. It may be more useless than I can imagine!
