This is the ruger miii 22/45 my stepdad has its an excellent gun but when we run bulk ammo even after cleaning it, it still jams and gets dirty quickly and we have malfunctions, then you have to get in there and clean it out. its annoying. this is why i like the revolver
Have you tried CCI's thru it? From what I've gathered, and seen, CCI's will make a semi gun run better a lot of the time.

Actually in a word YES. You use the exact same fundamentals shooting any revolver or pistol. Stance, grip, presentation, sight picture, sight alignment, breath control, trigger press, follow through.

See, exactly the same. Trigger feel will be different but if you are focused on your shooting fundamentals, you won't notice the trigger until it goes bang.

I disagree slightly with grip. Thumbs forward, like I about with on semis, wouldn't work on wheel guns. Rather dangerous actually.

It CAN be the same, just isn't for me.

Never bought into the thumbs forward. I switch back and forth with revolver and semi auto. Thumb over thumb. No change in my grip for either. It's the old way I was taught and has worked exceedingly well. No powder burns.
