Picked up a Ruger Mark III today. I got the 22/45 model, which comes on a polymer frame. I got it because I wanted a range gun that wasn't gonna break the bank to shoot. When I go to the range, I like to shoot 200-300 rounds, and even with 9mm being the cheapest of the service calibers, it's expensive. I can shoot 300 rounds of .22 LR for the price of 50 rounds of 9mm. That equals a lot more trigger time. What I didn't expect was how much darn fun this thing is to shoot!! They threw in 100 rounds with the gun so I took it to the range as soon as NICS cleared. I have to go back tomorrow. This thing is gonna be seriously addictive. I think going forward, I'm gonna run 200 .22 and 50 9mm per range session. That'll give me plenty of trigger time and won't break the bank. Did I mention how much fun this thing is to shoot???
