    I was thinking of getting a ruger mark iii for Christmas, should I get one although I wouldn't be able to shoot it much?

    i have the Mk III 22/45 Target model. excellent pistol! well made and very accurate. get one, as you probably won't be disappointed with it. you will find time to shoot it. one suggestion i will make if you buy one, get plenty of mags for it!

    Love plinkers, great for cheap range and camping fun. That is an excellent one to choose, arguably the best.

    Get a Mk II. Trigger break is much cleaner.

    They're 22lr, that's just their brand naming, probably because they're high velocity. They shoot as well and accurate as any from what I've found. Also found Remington Subsonics to be good reliable ammo for standard velocity.

    I have a Ruger Mark II and I just shoot Federal red box bulk ammo. Never had a problem.

    Absolutely get it.

    The Nambu-style slide lends the gun to

    attaching a scope. Dead-on at 50 yards,

    and outrageous plinking fun at 75 to 100 yards.

    My favorite pistol, hands down, at the range is my

    Ruger MK II with the 6-3/4" bull barrel, scoped.
