MK III 22/45 range trip

Post by foghern » Mon Jun 11, 2012 5:50 pm

Decided to purchase a gently used Ruger MK III 22/45 Target model with bull barrel and Weaver scope mount Saturday from a LGS so i could have something to shoot for cheap. After dealing with the less than desirable salesman I almost didn't buy it, but i couldn't pass it up for $220, the only way you could tell it was used is 1) it was filthy inside and 2) it was missing one magazine, but the gun didn't have a scratch on it. But I will never go back to that store again, i don't care if every other gun store in GA goes out of business. So I was able to get to the range yesterday for some plinking. The place was so packed there was an hour wait when i showed up, but I was very eager to shoot my new toy, so I waited. This is one of the most fun guns to shoot in my opinion that I have handled so far. Very accurate, no jams or problems at all, it runs like a clock. It took a little while to get it dialed in for 7 yards (that's about as far as i can see open sighted anyway) not sure at what distance it was zeroed in at before, but when I did get it, it was right on the money. unfortunately my hour was up as i was running the first mag after getting it sighted. If anyone lives in the Dekalb Co GA area you should definitely go visit Range, Guns, and Safes. Very nice ranges and even thought they were packed yesterday the guys working there were still nice to deal with. Only complaint about the place is that it was very hot on the range, not sure if they were expecting it to be cold outside or what, but I was sweating nearly the whole time I was shooting. But aside from that everything was great, I think I've finally found a local range for me and the wife to frequent. The good thing about her being out of town while all this happened is now she's gonna want to go to the range and shoot it too, so that gets me another range trip soon!

That's the last mag of the day after I got it dialed in, I pulled bad on the 4 strays, but the other 6 shots weren't too bad
