Default New Ruger Mark III 22/45

I purchased a new Ruger Mark III 22/45 with a threaded barrel on Saturday at the gun show in Tulsa, OK. I took my 17 year old daughter and the new firearm to the gun range today.

The firearm performed very well. We shot 550 rounds with only one failure to feed. This was my daughters first time to the gun range. And, well my thumb is sore from loading 550 rounds into 10 round mags.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Very nice. It's very fun to shoot a .22. You could get speed loaders to load those mags......................or you could have your daughter do some, too.

How did your daughter do shooting? Did she have a good time?

Midway has them for sale if you dont want to order by fax.

I've been thinking about getting one of these, along with a 10/22 for awhile. I have a SW .22 revolver already, but I'd like to get the other two for a BOB and SHTF. Cheap ammo, lots of fun to shoot, and good pieces to add to any collection!
The only time you can have too much ammunition is if you're swimming or on fire!

Gun stores: Where the morbidly obese can pretend to be mercenaries, allude to past experiences in Special Ops, and overuse words like "tactical" and "piece of kit".
