So I picked up a Ruger Standard and took it to the range this morning.
It was about 70 degrees with a 10MPH wind at my back. The target was 15 feet away.
For my first time put with it and my limited pistol experience I think I did fairly well. We put 100 rounds of CCI mini-mags through it, we had 4 failure to feeds where the bullet would slam into the bottom of the feed ramp. I'll try different ammo next time.
For the gun being inexpensive and made in the 70's it is in very good condition with little wear in the bluing. I would say it was a good find and will be lots of fun.
Here's another pic because I know we all love gun porn.
Edit: sorry for the phone pictures I don't have a real camera.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
