      My boy and a Ruger Mark III

      I've been getting my boy Matt moving up from pellet/BB rifle/pistols to a 22 pistol. I first had him shooting my Buckmark thinking the fiber optic sight might be a little easier on him. He did OK but I could see the mistakes a new shooter (especially with pretty small hands) was making on the target. I today let him try my Ruger Mark III 22/45 thinking it might be a little easier to hold but the sights are not too good for a new shooter (front blade is not the best as yo visibility) but thought he could at least get a feel for the pistol. This is his first target with the Ruger. I think he will do just fine in time

      Thumbs up

      Just keep him shooting and hell start to get the hang of things in dew time. Gently coach him along and he'll make a fine shooter one day. Good luck.

      Thanks a lot guys!

      Yeah..He ain't go tit down by no means but he got them all on paper and I thought that was pretty good..heh..I was lucky to hit the broad side of my own rump at that age with the gun in my back pocket!

      I'm looking forward to a lot more good times with him doing things like this. He already wants to hunt a deer

      Very nice! He's well on his way. Drop a VQ sear in that Mark III and the groups will tighten up even more. A lighter trigger makes a hell of a difference.

      Yeah. I really want to do some work to it. I bought it a while back and it's only been shot twice for about 150 rounds total. I'm not as well acquainted with the Rugers as I am some others. I guess I'll be catching up on my reading,,heh

      I'm a new Mark III owner and this site really helped me take it apart and get it back together again.

      Their forum also has a lot of good information on the Ruger Mark's.
