I bought a Ruger Mark III today and put 200 rounds thru it at the range. It is a sweet shooting pistol. I like to go to the range 2-3 times a month to practice. 9mm and .45 cal ammo gets expensive to shoot in any quantity to maintain skill. The Mark III should allow me to hone my skills by quantity time and I can then shoot a box or so of the other ammo thru my carry pistols to keep in touch with them. Dont want them to feel left out.
