Well, I see the the threads all of the time of new pistols. Many of you know that I'm pretty happy where I'm at as far as pistols are concerned...not many wants or needs. But I've been sort of wanting a pistol in 22LR for a while and things fell into place today. This is going to be my cheap shooter for Steel Challenge, and I'll be satisfied just knowing I'll be making the matches last longer for everyone else like they've been doing to me for a couple of years now......LOL! I originally had my heart set on a Walther P22. I've held a few and they just didn't have the balance I like. This is the Ruger MKIII 22/45 Target model and I've already ordered some Hogue finger groove grips for it. It feels right. Hope to fire the first rounds out of it this weekend.
