Ranger Report - Ruger SR22
The wind did not stop me from range time with the new Ruger SR22. I did bring along the S&W MP 15-22. The wind was blowing from NNW between 10 to 20 mph. Ruger SR22 will be joining the MP 15-22 everytime at the range, another addicting rifle!

No pics posted of the Bushmaster, that was the first to be fired using the iron sights only. Need to get a front sight tool and a red dot or old style colt scope for the handle. Mostly, fired about 120 PMC .223 rounds - very dirty rounds!

Pics of the .22LR rifles, S&W MP 15-22 on the left and the Ruger SR22 on the right:

The initial scope setup using Leapers I have was complete after 4 shots at 25 yards using standard Blazer CCI .22LR rounds:

Target at 50 yards with the Ruger SR22, fired about 50 rounds and then fired the S&W MP 15-22:

Well done. I remember the wind in ABQ howling this time of year!

Good deal BC.

That is very very hard decision! MP is first and SR22 second; but, they will get equal time at the range! :D

Scary thing, I just left the range after a few hours, around 12:15 p.m. and tonight, local news is saying a 38 year old accidentially shot himself in the leg at the same range this afternoon.
