Congrats, and welcome to the forum!
The 10/22 is an excellent little rifle. I own a Marlin model 60 with a little Tasco scope as well(like a 10/22, but with a tube magazine) and I love it to death. Let us know what you think of it when you get it. Cheers!
Always carry an extra magazine when CCW. Friends don't let friends get a double-feed first round out.
