    Every time my wife and I would go to Atwood’s she would go to the gun counter and look at this gun while I was getting whatever I was there for. I bet she looked at it at least 10 times and held it about 5-6 of those times. The Saturday before Christmas I went to Atwood’s to get a couple things and I noticed they still had the gun. I went up and looked at it and they told me it was the last 1 they had so I decided to get it for my wife for Christmas...we finally shot it Saturday and it is amazingly accurate...will make a great squirrel gun!

    You're a great husband Okie ! One of the first pistols I bought myself was an old Ruger made in the early fifties. I killed many a snake with that pistol and a few squirrels and rabbits. Good choice !

    You did good Okie! Bet she's gonna love that pistol. I've always wanted one of those but never pulled the trigger.

    They are great pistols, although kinda fun to take apart! I put an aftermarket trigger in mine, it is a huge difference.

    The new ones are supposed to be much easier. My target model is probably 20 years old and has been fully dismantled exactly 1 time! Still runs like a champ, need to get some new mags the springs are getting weak after thousands of rounds. Nice pistol Okie.

    I agree with the others. I'm not much of a pistol guy and I'm a horrible shot with one but that gun makes me look decent :)

    Congrats to the wife! I have one in blue. Bought it the day before the Brady Act was instated as a big f#@#@ you to the government for imposing gun control laws. It's a gun I will never get rid of... and like others said is a tack driver!

    I have the same pistol, very fun gun, just messing around on the range I can hit a 20" disk blade at 100 yards with bulk ammo and plenty of Kentucky windage! I'm a piss poor pistol shot but its still fun to plink with

    i have a mark 4 target model. like swat, i put an aftermarket trigger in mine (tandemkross), and also the volquartsen accurizing kit. the trigger went from heavy and gritty to light and sweet. well worth the money, and pretty easy when you follow you tube videos.

    I love those Ruger Mark series pistols. I'm green with envy. :D
