    Have a MKIII and a 10/22. MKIII is a hand held rifle and I will never part with it. 10/22 is just a blast and with the 3 30 rounders I have is enough semi auto fun for me and the kids.

    Sounds like purgatory to me. :eek: Gotta own a 10/22 in your lifetime! :D My dad bought us two for seventy five bucks way back.......early 80s or late seventies. One for him and one for me and I haven't looked back. Love my Rugers, but I did break down and buy a new Buckmark pistol this year. I really don't discriminate. Just about every company makes a good gun here and there...and just about ever one makes some turds too.

    My first gun was a Ruger .22 cal 3 screw SA revolver. I am a huge Ruger fan and have since then collected the old 3 screw revolvers. All of mine are original without the safety bar conversion. I made sure that my daughters first gun was a 3 screw .22 as well. You can't go wrong with a Ruger!

    My wife gave me a 10/22 for Christmas about 25 years ago, still have it. Had numerous pistols since then, but strangely enough do not own a ruger rimfire pistol at the moment. Got a 10/22 magnum last friday from a fellow at work. Just about NIB. Has had 5 rounds through it when purchased new about 20 years ago. Ken

    My first Ruger was a 10/22 purchased new at Sears for $54.50, also bought 4 boxes of 22LR for 80 cents each. Purchase date was 11/4/68. Total out the door with tax was $58.86. Yep I still have the rifle and the sales receipt. Ah the good old days!!!
    Happy New Year all.

    In 1976 I went to the gun store and bought a Ruger .22 6 7/8 tapered barrel and a Colt Mark III Trooper. The salesman asked me for ID and I showed him my Drivers License, he answered Happy 21st Birthday. You need to be 21 here in Pa. to purchase a handgun. I later found out that mine is a Liberty Ruger. Stamped on the barrell "Made in the 200th year of American Liberty". I now have my dad's 4 digit serial number Ruger bought in 1949 or 1950, my 5 1/2 Mark II bull barrel and the 50th anniversary Ruger.

    I am currently the proud owner of 4 of Bill Ruger's fine examples of .22 rimfire firearms. They from 38 yrs. young to 54 yrs.
    The first one I bought personally was a Bearcat Mfg'd in 1967. Dainty little thing but shoot extremely well as a point shooter. Don't try to aim.
    Next was a Single Six Convertable. Also in 1967. Killed a lot of snakes and put several thousand rounds through it.
    After that it was a Mk I 5.5" Bull barrel with adj. sights.(Target Model) Guesstimate 250k+ rounds. Still way more accurate than I can shoot. Squirrel and rabbits don't have a chance. 1973
    View attachment 56854 target was at 25 yds.
    Last but not least I inherited my fathers 1958 Mk I Target with 6.75" tapered barrel when he passed in 2006. It is the pride of my small collection. He taught me to shoot pistols with it. Guesstimated rounds 500k+. Still an extremely accurate pistol.
    Both revolvers are original 3 screw and Ruger will never see them. Only a careless moron needs a safety bar to prevent shooting himself.
