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.
