    Santa Came Late This Year

    Since I was scheduled to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas, we decided to swap gifts the following weekend. The youngest kid is 21, so it wasn't that big of a deal. Anyhow, my wonderful wife surprised me with this:





    Ruger MKII with what I think are tulipwood grips. She bought it from our neighbor, he says he put maybe 50 rds through it, just never shot it. I believe it looking at the condition.

    She's definitely a keeper. Oh, and the wife can stay too.

    Nice gift. Congrats. Nice grips too. Shoot it in good health.

    Time to buy more magazines. Lots of .22 LR Mags makes shooting much more fun.

    Got to love the Ruger Mark series. Fine pistol if I do say so.

    That one is a beauty. Congrats!

    Congrats on the Ruger.... I have a Mk.II, they're great... Check CDNN for spare mags, they're pretty competitive on the price...

    NICE! If Santa brought gifts like that every time, nobody would complain if he was late! Your wife is awesome :)

    Have fun!

    The Ruger MKII is a fun target pistol. I don't know anyone who likes cleaning them but do keep it clean and it will last.

    Looks like there's some plunkin' pleasure in your future.
