Default Ruger MK3

My wife just put this on Lay Away at a local gun shop. She's not even into shooting but maybe this will kick start her into it.

Nice. I have a few friends that own Mk II's so I looked at them and the Mk III's a while back. I'd hate to waste money on a pistol when the shooter (me) sucks with one. If it performs anything like or better than a Mk II you'll be very impressed

Mmmm slab sided bullbarrel, beautiful pistol she picked out. I've had 4 MK series pistols of one flavor or the other and still have my bullbarrel MK II, never had one in stainless though...looks like a keeper.

Yeah, she mainly liked how it looked. I told her it was going to shoot great. We'll see in a month or two. Maybe I'll have my Saiga12 out then too.

I have the MKII version. Great shooter. Do yourself a favor and learn how to disassemble and reassemble ASAP. They are a bitch to clean. There are some tricks to learn about reassembly. Watch the youtube videos.

I've been told this more than once. The gun shop guy had no clue.

The MkII govt was one of the first handguns I fired when I was a kid.

I haven't bought myself one yet, but I do have a MkII 22/45 target.

My wife loves shooting it as well.
