    Talking New acquisition - ok, can't CC it, but still =D

    I just got home with my new (to me) Ruger MKII. It belonged to my uncle, who passed away in 2005. I was quite pleased to get it, as I didn't really have anything else to remember him by. Ok, enough backstory - I know everyone wants pics. It's not your average MKII... it's a stainless steel, TEN INCH freaking bull barrel. This thing is ridiculous - I've shot air guns with more recoil than this.

    Well, here it is. More pics and targets to come after Sunday.

    That's my gun!!!!!!



    You can see it there in the middle. Sorry the only picture I have right now.

    My wife loves it and I have to say that it is way more accurate than I am.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    You're not kidding. I just came in from outside, and I took out a squirrel that had been tearing up the bird feeder - from 30 yards away.

    With iron sights.

    With a headshot.

    I can't wait to get a rail and scope for it - varmints beware!

    I've got a stainless MK II with a 6" bull barrel. I can shoot 45 casing from 20 ft away. Its my most accurate firearm. I can't wait to put a mini red dot on it and then I can really wring the accuracy potential out of it. I take it every time I go shooting and whoever shoots it loves it. Who knows how many rounds I have put through it.
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!

    I have a MkII with the 7" bull barrel & red dot scope.

    I have shot 5 rounds in one ragged hole at 50 feet. (really fellas!) simply incredible pistol.

    Conceal it as a crutch. It's nearly long enough.

    No CC?? Why not. Carry IWB while wearing jeans. Just walk with a limp.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!
