I grew up outside of Roscoe in an area called "The Ledges".

Holy crap, small world. I used to ride/show at the stables as a kid and those stables are currently owned by some old friends of the family. I lived on Caledonia Road right next to Kinnikinnick Park.

To psycho and Chris, I find the GSG to be surprisingly accurate, I am easily the weak link in the equation. If you want to split hairs, the Ruger is probably more accurate and repeatable if you were to put both on a bench, but shooting off hand I think you would be hard pressed to see the difference.

Did I mention that I love my GSG?

Haha. I lived on Bond Dr., and went to Kinnikinnick School.

If the GSG 1911 is pretty close in accuracy to the Ruger, it sounds like the benefits of the 1911 platform (especially cleaning!!!!) would make the scales tip in favor of the GSG.

I think I'll start keeping my eyes out for a good used one. Anybody have an extra one? PM me and I'll buy it immediately!!

Well Russ and M14 it surely is a small world. I am familiar with where you both are from. And like you both I plan on moving out of the area sooner rather than later, but it's pure coincidence im sure I got a chance to fondle both guns and I must say the GSG feels wonderful. At this point with my wife she is still very, lets say shy to the gun world so once I get broken in on the .22 I will get her out and make her a little more familiar.

Unfortunately I got the funds but I still can't make up my mind. Of course I love the styling and feel of the GSG, but I am still relatively new to owning and maintaining my own firearms but all that I hear is Ruger reliability is pretty amazing. I am still pretty torn, but I appreciate everyones responses.

Well, I still think that you can't make a bad purchase here. You either end up with one great .22 pistol or another. But, like Chris said, the edge for ease of cleaning goes to the GSG. The Ruger (and other blowback operated rimfire pistols) are complex to disassemble for a deep clean.

Well I decided to go with the Ruger MKIII 22/45. I figure my next fun plinker will be the GSG 1911-22. I wanted to thank all of you for your opinions and advice, which just ended up continuing my habit. There I think that is step one of the recovery process, admitting you have a problem.

I am planning on picking up a GSG next week. If I do, I'll post a range report.

I still owe you guys a review of my Kimber (hopefully next week!!)

This is a Browning Contour 5.5 one of the rimfires I have and I like it very much, great trigger, well balanced. I don`t have to do any customizing, it`s all there....Jim
