I had one of those Rugers back in the day, had a can for it too, but not as sleek as that.
Was popular as .22 Ammo are easy to find on the black market here, and some "kids" that i assume have seen some movie, thought that having one made them a bad ass assassin.

And i assume the Rugers that made it into the black market also came from brake ins in shooting clubs.

Its not a Walter GSP for sure, but okay for people to get a feel for pistol shooting i assume, i shot 15 and 50 M in rifle the biggest shooting club in town as a kid, but never saw anything but rifles there.

It also doesn't have the price tag of a GSP either. The Ruger MK series have always been great guns, and the platform has been around a long time. They're a great way not just to introduce people to shooting, but for plinking and target shooting for experienced shooters also. Burning through 9mm gets expensive, fairly decent .22lr ammo is around $.04rd here.

This is all from the past few weeks, just haven't updated.

I was having some FTE issues in the 10/22 last time out, and it dawned on me that my extractor and ejector were both 20+ years old. So I picked up a Volquartsen exact edge extractor, and a new wire cut ejector from EDM Defense.



I also picked up a Sig Kilo 1200 range finder



And a new range bag from Red Rock Outdoor Gear. This is one of those things you don't realize you really needed until you've bought it. I love this thing!!



And my stamp came back last week, so I've spent the week getting my form 1 .22lr can (and my first can!) completed. Nine 60deg baffles bored and symmetrically clipped, 1" x 6" size. Can't wait to test it out this weekend.

Great. Overall I would say this is a great pack. Small and compact but with enough room for all the essentials.

Holy shit soda blasting my baffles is so much easier for cleaning! Worth every penny of the compressor (which will be used for other stuff too) and media gun purchase.

I picked up a case of Aguila Super Extra standard velocity 40gr after tying a brick of it. This stuff shot OK before getting my can, but with the can it shoots better than anything I’ve tried yet in both my 10/22 and my MK IV. And it's super cheap by the case.

Picked this up the other day with the copious amounts of over time I have been getting. Replaced the rubber stock grips with the nice Coco Bolo grips from CZ's custom shop.

It should be going the Cajun Gun Works for the pro kit (https://cajungunworks.com/product/in...ackage-426-00/) at the end of the month.

A great read about ELR .22lr stuff for anyone interested. Figured I'd move it over here and not clutter up the purchase thread.

This line from your link sums up why I have stepped away from rim fire rounds in general and especially 22LR:

"The best quality ammunition is essential for good results. Weight sorting of individual rounds will assist the control of velocity variations..."

You are limited by what is being produced in the factories.

I reload ammo for everything I own gun wise. This, I think, adds an additional level of satisfaction and complexity to the hobby that I really enjoy. There is something about researching loads, building ammo, testing it in your gun and finding the load that shoots lights out in it that I really enjoy.

When I had my savage 22LR it was a pain just finding subsonic ammo in general. Then when all the AR bros got wind that you could convert your AR to shoot 22LR and all the 22LR ammo disappeared it was even more of a pain in the ass. When it came back it was twice the price it was before and I got turned off of it. That was when I discovered 17 HMR.

I currently reload 6.5 Creedmoor, .243 Winchester and 45/70 Government. It's very rewarding and something you simply cannot do with 22LR or 17 HMR for that matter.

My hat is off to you for continuing to carry the 22 LR flag. It is one I lost interest in a while ago. lol.

At any rate, here's some gun porn because everybody likes that!:

It's the flag I can afford to carry, so I go with it. Drool worthy stuff as always man. One of these days, I'll dive into that box of reloading gear in the basement. Need to figure out where I want to call home for a while first as I'm contemplating a move.
