    New Ruger Mark III

    Well I finally made my choice between the Ruger and the S&W...well sort of. I was actually heavily leaning toward the S&W SW22 as my preference plus it runs about $40 to $50 bucks below the Ruger. As always seems to be the case with me, cost interjects itself. At the last minute I found this Ruger NIB at $339 which is a smashing deal for this pistol and I couldn't resist. Of course I still plan on buying the S&W lol. I was initially zeroing in on a 357 revolver but then had an epiphany. My budget doesn't allow for a ton of gun purchases so I want to buy guns that are fun and that I can shoot a lot. In my life that always spells .22 caliber. I know I made the right decision. Instead of shopping for expensive ammo I have about 2000 rounds of .22 I plan to hit hard as soon as this snow melts a little!

    Should be a great addition to your arsenal. Ruger is tops in my book- 10/22, Charger and AR-556- and looking at a SP101 .38 real close!

    Shoot it safely and often...

    I just bought a mk iii hunter for Christmas. Gave up a MK ii target years ago and missed it.

    I like the challenge of putting it back together...yes I'm sick.

    The Volquartzen trigger upgrade is nice and they are pretty all steel guns. I considered the Buckmark and Victory but I just didn't 'feel it'.

    ENJOY.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.

    I have a Ruger Mark II which is fun & reliable to shoot but a bear to clean!

    I'm looking into the new Mark IV as a possible future purchase - mainly because of the two step takedown.

    But another congrats to TonyC on the new gun purchase.

    I am gonna go ahead and move this to the "Other Handguns" section so it will get a little more exposure.

    Gosh I just love the Hunter with the long barrel, absolutely love it! I tried really hard to get a used one (like new) just before I bought this one. Even used it just got too far away from my budget. Maybe one day!
