I've been thinking ahead (waaaay ahead since my twin girls are 3 and my son is 18 months) about buying a .22 for plinking and eventually to use as a first gun for my kids.
I have shot Rugers in the past, but I have no idea what it was that I shot. I know some of the differences between the Mark II and Mark III and it seems like either one I find is fine for what I plan on using it for.
With that said, is there any difference between the Mark IIs and Mark IIIs and the 22/45 that would have me choose one over the other?
And btw, it seems everyone is of the opinion that a used Ruger .22 should be selling for around $200~$250, but I must be blind cuz I see em for as high as $400 used. WTH?
