Not really all that rare,, but the Kid had a Doe tag. He passed 100's of animals before we found a doe with horns that we could get a chance at...
He stuck to his guns,,, wanting to harvest a Doe with horns.
I know you are specifically talking about a Ruger 10-22,,, but look at this quote from Californias gun laws in reference to AR style weapons.
CATEGORY 2AK and AR-15 Series Weapons (Kasler v. Lockyer)This California Supreme Court decision took effect on August 16, 2000. Under this decision, any firearm ofminor variation of the AK or AR-15 type (i.e., series weapon), regardless of the manufacturer, is a Category 2(Kasler v. Lockyer) assault weapon under the original Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989.All AK and AR-15 series weapons had to be possessed before August 16, 2000 and must have beenregistered on or before January 23, 2001. The Department of Justice is required to identify these seriesweapons and includes in this publication a listing of identified AK and AR-15 series weapons.It is important to note that removal of a firearm’s characteristics does not affect its status as a Category2 assault weapon. A Category 2 assault weapon is still an assault weapon even if it has no Category 3(SB 23 - generic characteristics) features.Category 2 assault weapons may be of any caliber, including .22 caliber rimfire.
