Went to visit my folks over spring break. My dad was on a kick for buying a gun he and my mom could go shoot together and have fun without breaking the bank. Ended up buying I believe a Sporter with heavy barrel. I admit I don‘t know a ton about many guns, and never thought super highly about Rugers in general, but after I shot his, I was impressed it lays them in there nice and consistent and fun to shoot. Well, I went home and did some looking. Finally came across one called the ”no sights” model. Was $100 less than my dad paid for his so I had to pull the trigger. Got it home last weekend and fitted it with scope and rings. Now just waiting for a chance to go to hunt club and shoot it a bit. Not heavy barrel like my dads but I think it’ll shoot just fine. The more I read on these the better I like them. Seems like lots of people have/had one and most say good things on reliability. Oh yeah, gotta take them ugly stickers off. Leupold rings with Vortex 2-7x32 scope.
