    A new forum and no posts on the rimfire forum. I can fix this.

    I have been a Ruger shooter since 1976. My first was a bicentenial issue Mark 1 with "Made in the 200th year of american liberty" stamped in the barell. Unfortunaly that handgun was lost in the Bastrop fires along with all of my other guns, but I am back.
    This is my newest acquistion.

    I have only fired a few hundred rounds through it, but enough to know that it is a blast and that it does not like Winchester bulk ammo. Lots of jams with that stuff.

    22/45 Lite.

    Nothing special. They've been out for awhile.
    Picked this up a our local gun shop just before Christmas. Walked in, said "let me see that one".
    That was all she wrote! it was mine a few days later, and rather than explain to the wife what I had just done, I wrapped it and put it under the tree to Me!

    She still isn't sure what happened! :^)

    It's a Tactical Solutions Comp that I painted with automotive paint. Toyota Almond Beige Pearl. Pretty close match, Would have been closer if I had mixed in a bit more silver.
    It has been holding up amazingly well, but I will probably get it anodized at some point.

    I've had my "lite" a couple weeks, havent experienced any issues except disassembly and reassembly, man! it is a tight fit!! Had to use a small rubber mallet to remove and reinstall the barrel. A friend had the same issue and said it would get easier! It's a tack-driver!!

    Frustrating. I've been looking for one of these for a while with no luck. Most places that had them wanted too much. So I stroll into the shop today and they have a used one of the shelf for $319. Nice looking Lite man.

    After looking at this, had to have one, so ordered it yesterday.

    Guys are the range said it will be a race as to which arrives first, the gun or the completed background check....

    The backgrounds are running close to 7 days here

    Wow! 7 days? That' insane!
    Worth the wait though. The Lite is a great gun.

    Reminds me of a Pat McManus story about how to have as many (long) guns as you want (without upsetting your wife). First get a 22 rifle, and explain how you need it for squirrel hunting. Stand it in the corner of the bedroom. Next, explain how you need a shotgun for quail and ducks, etc. She'll agree. Stand it in the corner. After awhile, tyell her you need a deer rifle, so you can go hunting with the boys. Once she agrees, stand it in the corner with the others. Then, you're home free. Get as many as you want (one at a time), and stand them in the corner. The American housewife is incapable of distinguishing more that three guns that are all standing in the dorner.

    I found this entertaining. My wife would have no clue what kind or how many rifles/shotguns/pistols that I have. As long as we've been together I have had guns, but they have been of the hunting variety. Recently I have indulged in my pistol passion. I have added two 9mm's and three 22's to my stash in the last 2 years. She has been pretty tolerant, but I know that I have been pushing the limits a little. I just puchased an SR22 which is intended to be for my 57th BD in Feb. What I found most amusing was the term "American Housewife". This sounds like a term that would have been left to rot with my parents generation. My wife is a recently retired 35 year kindergarten teacher. I think if I referred to her by that description, my pistol purchasing would slow up considerably. My next plan of action is to get her to shoot 22's with me to see if I can spark some interest. Having a full-time so called "American Housewife" is a work in progress, but I'll never call her that . ;)

    Our parents' generation was the one that Pat was a part of, and "American housewife" was a common stereotype, used fondly and often. Myself, having survived numerous dangerous encounters, would never attempt to use such a term in this day and age, without wearing a very thorough disguise - and even then, I would have to hide behind a tree and change my voice.
