thanks for all the input
I used to own a ruger mk I or II
I used to own a snub nose 22
I used to own a 22 ruger SA
so i wanted something different
I didn't want to spend the 700+ for the Kimber and I didn't want a 22 coversion for my glock 26 - i wanted a separate gun
i love the feel and my wife likes it also and said something about going to the range with me sometime! I BOUT FELL OFF MY FEET!!
only took it to the range once so far and 100 rounds of stinger went thru it without a flaw
next time will be 100 rounds of CCI mimi mags
I really had the best time with using the laser sight - that was a new experience for me - it really does show trigger control or lack thereof - ha
lasers are sooo cool

My 5.5 in Ruger Mk II has been back to Ruger once, but minor stuff. Of the Three brands, the Ruger is the last one I'd prefer to take apart and clean. But you see......... that's just my opinion.... and that's what was asked for in the original post in this thread.
I purchased a Mk II stainelss steel with the bull barrel about 10 years ago. I bought it used and it had had the trigger worked on for an ultra light, crisp pull. It was one of the nicest pistols I've ever shot. The only problem I ever had out of it was the first time I took it apart. There's a trick to putting it back together that few would figure out on their own.

Always a pleasure to shoot, never jammed/misfired, and was way more accurate than I'll ever be.

Get a 22/45 and put a red-dot scope on it.

Default Uh-Oh ..... Now you've done it.

Now you got me thinking.

I was happy with my Colt Target Woodsman and my Ruger Mk I, but now........I don't know. I'm thinking I need a P22 to round out my Walther collection.
Let's see:

a) Buy the P22
b) Sell the Ruger and buy the P22
c) Sell both the Colt and Ruger and buy the P22.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.....

PLEASE keep us posted on how you like it.

I've noticed that they are making 22lr conversion kits for popular pistols. You could just convert your current handgun to 22lr as long as it's not a revolver. I don't know how the kits work or if they are any good, but it's an option.
