SR22! and first purchase suggestions.

Tomorrow I am going to go and purchase a Ruger SR-22, I'm excited, everything I have read says it is a super fun little gun and I plan on shooting the heck out of it!

This will be my first purchase, i am in AZ, what sort of paper work should I expect?

This has also been something I have been thinking about, and I am not sure about.... Will they sell me the gun from the case or one that is in its manufacturer packaging? Should I insist on purchasing the gun that hasn't been handled or does it matter?

Also, what things should I be sure about before I walk out with it? Any sort of checklist you guys run through?

I am also planning on picking up a barrel snake, some sort of lube (mili-tech? brand suggestions? I only know of mili-tech because bench made uses it in their knives), a simple lock (not sure what its called, but the rubber coated steel cable that runs up the grip) and an assortment of .22 ammo to mess around with. A small safe is in the works.

Anything else I should pick up while I am there?

If you have the option of NIB, get that one. I wouldn't be too concerned if you are only able to get the floor model though. I would want one that doesn't have everyone's greasy fingers on it though unless they give a discount for it.

Rem Oil has been around for a long time and I use it on all of my guns, including my AR15.

I don't know anything about AZ laws but do know they're more lax than we have in TX. Unless you're a felon or have charges of some sort pending against you, there's nothing to worry about from a paper work standpoint.

loving the thing, I have 3000 rounds through it and shes is still running strong. Looking at my next purchase already btw, itll shoot pretty much anything, it loves the CCI minimags (not a single Failure) and the winchester bulk (a few FTF per box). Federal bulk seems to have more failures. But overall, great little gun

I've had a problem with the extractor not grabbing an I fired round out of the barrel if I stop shooting mid-magazine. I think the recoil from the fired rounds pushes the empty shell back to where the extractor gets a good hold on it but not the unfired rounds. I need to figure out how to fix this. I considered filing the point of the extractor down a little sharper so it gets between the shoulder of the casing and the barrel better but am scared of screwing it up worse.
