Just a matter of time for them to have appeared. The Competition has always been a model I thought was atop the model line. The Tactical... well, just shows, add some clotheslines and call it "tactical" and ppl will think it's great. :rolleyes:

Loving mine. Rails come in handy for certain things.
I may even hang my Christmas lights on them when the season gets here. ☺

Ruger also now has the MK IV Standard with the tapered barrel like the MK 1 and MK II originals had.

I'm pretty happy with my MKII standard 6", although I wish it was the 4" model. I bought the 6" because that was the minimum barrel length allowed for hunting here back when I bought it.

I wanted the 4.5" MKIII 22/45 until I put it in my hand. The grip just didn't feel right to me. I liked the raked grip better. Had they made a MKIII with the raked grip and the 4 inch bull barrel I would have bought it.

About a week ago I went to the Ruger web page to look at the new MK IV standards and found a 4" tactical with the raked handle. Just what I want except for the rails. I'm thinking hard about it, I guess I could remove the rails.

If you don't want the rail then just buy the MK IV Target model with the bull barrel.

LOL!

I like handguns to have between 3 and 5 inch barrels. Much below 3 and over 5 I lose interest.

I do, however, like "specialty" handguns. The T/C Contenders and Encores, Ruger Chargers, CVA Scouts. That's the way I go if I want a longer barreled handgun.

I bought this 50th edition MK II recently, unfired in its original box. Standard model with a few special touches. Stainless bolt, two mags with the Ruger trademark, red emblem on grip and the 50th rollmark affixed to barrel. Always wanted one because of it's classic "look"...Jack

I bought a mark iv 22/45 tactical cuz it's already threaded, and has a nice heft to it. I try to get every gun I purchase threaded. I'm hoping they're going to pass the hearing protection law, so suppressors will no longer be classified as NFA items. I'm not going to waste $200 on a stamp.

The dream of not being taxed on our rights! Unfortunately, I don't think that's ever going to happen.

I think the pros and cons of silencers need looked at very closely.
But as long as it sells a lot of hearing protectors they could care less.
I have yet to find foam insert ear plugs that worked well for me.

I found some shooter's ear plugs on ebay, supposed to allow normal sound through, and cut off sudden loud noises. Gonna try them next time shooting...

I bought a few different types of plugs like that and found that none of them work very well. Ended up just going with Peltor electronic headsets.
