    Hey ladies and gents. My name is Robert. From North Carolina. Have loved guns since I was old enough to care. Prior military. Current LEO. 31 yrs old. I'm a big fan of Rugers. The Rugers I own are a 10/22, Mark III target pistol with integral suppressor, and I have a Ruger Wiley Clapp II GP100 on order at the LGS. I have other guns but those are my Rugers. Happy New Years everyone. Stay safe and stay alert.

    Hi Robert. Nice pictures - better than I can manage usually. The Ruger .22 target pistol has pleased me since I first saw one long ago. I think it's because the appearance of the old Luger it somewhat resembles fascinates me.

    [
    The last entry in smokier's sig - 4: If you can hit where you aim, caliber don't matter... If you cannot hit where you aim, caliber don't matter... always makes methink "Well, the 8 ring is usually close enough."]

    Welcome to the forum and liked seeing your pics. I bet you are really going to like the GP100.

    Excellent layout and focus.

    What is the brand of that magazine, and how is it working for you?

    It's a Butler Creek. I've only used it once and so far I'm not impressed. Several FTF's. However, the magazine and the rifle were still brand new the time I fired it so maybe they need more breaking in. I'm keeping it for now.

    Ah. I bought a Butler Creek 25 rd, to my regret; there's a post about it around here somewhere.

    Sounds like we were bit by the same dog. At least it was cheap.
