I won't do it again without going up to visit JonM and have him guide me. I have a pretty low frustration level.

Tell me exactly what kind of gun it is and I'll find you a link. I have a friend who is a master at finding exactly what one needs on youtube.

I have studied sharks since I was about 4 years old. In fact I may get a great white shark tattooed on me.

I love books and spicy food. The hotter the better.

I love halloween and all the shows. During that time I will watch any halloween special on tv from "Home Improvement" "the simpsons" to the old "Goosebumps" show.

I am not to fond of christmas but I like watching christmas shows and movies as well.

Yeah... I hope this doesn't scare you away from trying. Those Ruger Mark's have a reputation for being tough to break down. But I have found youtube videos where guys walk you through it - and they get them broken down in a matter of something like 1 minute - and make it look simple! I think the written instructions must be confusing.

I love those Marks - they shoot so well - that is why I checked.

I have a 22/45 and was confused at first how to take it down and reassemble it. Now it is easy. Just takes practice. It helps to have somebody walk you through it though while you get the hang of it. After that just practice in front of the TV or something.

I have worked nights before, too. It is my preferred shift.

Breaking it down to clean it wasn't the problem. I tried to replace the thumb safety. I eventually got it done. It didn't help that I am stubborn and wanted to do it myself.

My trigger feels good but it pinches my finger.... Trip did tell me replacing it may not fix it and that video winds posted said not to take it out... We couldn't even figure out how it came apart.
