    Ruger announced that it is recalling all Mark IV pistols (including 22/45 models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017. Ruger recently discovered that the pistols have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the “safe” and “fire” positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the “fire” position, the pistol may fire at that time. Although only a small percentage of Mark IV pistols appear to be affected and the Company is not aware of any injuries, Ruger is firmly committed to safety and would like to retrofit all potentially affected pistols with an updated safety mechanism. As a responsible manufacturer, Ruger wants to make its customers aware of this FREE safety upgrade. All Mark IV pistols with serial numbers beginning with “401” (2017 models) or “WBR” (2016 models) are subject to the recall. Mark IV owners should visit the Mark IV Recall website at Ruger.com/MarkIVRecall to look up the serial number of their Mark IV and verify if it is subject to the recall, sign up for the recall, and obtain additional information.

    It's daylight & doesn't look bad out there . The snow has a crust of ice on top .
    The auction starts in 2 hours & the gun show is open . Tough choices today . Staying in & cleaning the shop actually sounds better than going out in this .:p
    But the snow needs to get moved or the mailman will get all poopy about it . And if I am doing that might as well warm up the truck ..... might as well see how bad the roads are ..... might as well got to the auction ! lol Well that's settled .

    The cold with 30mph wind was brutal! The freezing rain on top of the snow soked in deep. Top 1-2" of the snow turned into an ice. My snow blower just would not stay down in the snow. It kept lifting. Back up, hit again. The discharge sounded like a steady stream of rocks. Got enough off to get the SUV out though.

    Over did myself yesterday and badly again today. Hurt all over tonight. Old age has set in with me. Chest started getting tight and lack of breath. I quit right then.

    The ice started here around 10 last night along with the wind .
    This a.m. there was a crust on snow . My small blower wouldn't do it so I went & dug out " BIG BERTHA " that took it off . I didn't do it all here because of the show . Everything was slush the a.m. & by 1 with the wind back up it was all ice . Crabbed a $ 5 pizza on the way home & have just stayed in doing nothing .
    Don't over due it outlaw ...... nothing is worth being down for a few months !
