    Hello. I'm Karl, and I'm now a Ruger addict. I'm 72, and have owned literally hundreds of guns over the years. Pretty much gave it all up some years back except for a self defense firearm. Well, now, at my advanced age, I find myself addicted to Ruger handguns. I own four now. Collection can't grow much because of lack of money and space. I go to an indoor range every other week or so, and enjoy the heck out of it. The most fun I can have with my clothes on. Even with my aging eyes, I have been able to return myself to be a very good shooter. Good enough to get the job done anyway. My Rugers are: 1. SP 101 snub in .357/.38. 2. LCP II. 3. New Bearcat shopkeeper 3.5" bbl. 4. Newest is a NIB SR-22 which hasn't been to the range yet. I like to fuss with the guns and all have my personal mods except the SR-22, and parts are already on the way for that one. I'm a happy guy!

    How-do Mr. Karl, nothing wrong with all that. As we age we seek contentment right.
    I was once into model railroading, still like it but nothing gives me more pleasure and freedom that blasting a few box's at the range.

    Welcome aboard, newbie here myself it's a nice little forum here.

    Welcome to the forum, what do you plan to do to your SR22? The I only thing I did to mine was add a stainless steel guide rod. Not a real fan of polymer. Did the same thing to my SR9 and Walther PPQ.
