    Recommend me one. I wanted to get one pretty cheap because all I will do is shoot soda cans with it. There is no way I would ever carry that lil thing. Taurus makes one for $220 new at a local shop. But there is also a .38 semi-auto with a laser built in for $199.:noes:

    Also: I want to shoot the .22 for economic reasons but a worker told me that the remingtion bulk .22 ammo is shit, and shouldn't be fired out of a pistol. That true?

    Rem bulk ammo is shit. 500 rounds of it through my 10/22 makes a giant mess

    ruger MKII if you never want to clean it.

    Buckmark if want something similar.



    I got a MKIII hunter, but kind of wish I bought a Buckmark instead.

    I just replaced the springs in my 50 year old Ruger MK1. I highly recommend the Rugers.

    P22 is fun, I like both my mosquitos, love my neos (hate that you can't get the 7.5" barrel anymore) and I'm indifferent towards my MKIII. It's reliable, it's just a pain in the ass to clean.

    If I were just shooting at cans I'd go mosquito or P22. If I'm shooting paper I'd go neos or MkIII/buckmark

    I love my Ruger mk3 22/45 and it is very reliable but God help you if you ever have to take it apart.

    Why would you void your warranty and spend a ton of money doing that when you can just buy a Ruger MKII/III for 250.00 new?

    I don't get why people think it's so hard to strip the Rugers. It took me a couple trys to get it down but I cleaned mine in <5 minutes yesterday after Speed Steel.

    you don't void your warranty. Put the stock glock slide back on and they can't tell you changed it.


    As for Ruger, fuck them. I will not support their politics by giving them a dime of my money.

    ruger/buckmark if you want a gun that shoots well, is accurate, always works, etc


    p22/mosquito/other bull shit if you want a gun that looks pretty and don't care how well it works.

    Google it / him

    He said something along the line of "no honest man needs more than 10 rounds of ammunition" or some such shit. The mini 14 was what he was trying to sell...

    It's fucked up.

    If it doesn't void the warranty then why do you care if they can tell or not?
