    Sold my GSG-5PK last week and bought something that my wife will actually shoot - a Ruger MkIII 22/45. :wiggle:

    I'm also glad to have another cheap pistol to shoot. I can comfortably shoot all day for around $20 :bowdown:

    I think my 9mm is going to be relegated to concealed carry and the bedside until ammo prices come down a bit more and I can train. I really wish someone made a .22 conversion for the XD9sc platform :o :o

    Good choice.

    Field stripping and reassembly the first time is a bitch, but after that it's a breeze once you get the hang of it.

    good luck finding 22lr, I've been looking for 22 for weeks and haven't found any, the last time I found any it was at walmart and I bout everything they had... all 2200 rounds.
     
  4. Good choice! Ruger makes great .22 guns.

    Yes they do.
     
  6. That's why I qualified my statement by adding in the ".22" part.

    Do the mag disconnect mod and it'll be a breeze to reassemble.

    I have a Ruger M77 Stainless All Weather in 22.250. I love the look of the gun . I really like the way the gun mounts and its almost a tack driver.


    With all that said . I hate the way the gun shoots and for the life of me I can really say why.

    I was not at Berea.

    FWIW, when I bought my Ruger, Vance's had piles of .22 in Federal Value packs, 525 rounds for $20. A little steep compared to Walmart, but not horribly so.

    I'd like to hear more about this.

    Is it harder than a 1911?

    My 10/22 is pretty simple. (I have to look at the diagram yeah I'm a faggot)

    It's easy once you wrap your head around how it all fits together.

    This makes sense.

    First time I detail stripped any of my firearms I had to look at the pictures.

    After that it was no big deal.

    Like I posted earlier, do the mag disconnect removal and it's much easier.

    I think I would rather put together an AK kit rather than detail stripping an unmodified 22/45.
