Thread: Ruger Mk II

Do you have any particular round you favour? My fellow Canadian who answered suggested CCI Mini Mags, which I bought a box of. I'd appreciate your input on it.
Just sitting here wondering if that surgeon felt a need to go about heavily armed.

On the weekend, I turned out a couple of boxes of Stingers and I did not like the amount of flash and the way the action banged back and forth.
Today, I called CCI in Idaho and talked to their tech rep. When I mentioned Stingers, he said (REMEMBER, this is straight from the cartridge manufacturer),
"DO NOT USE STINGERS IN CLOSED BOLT SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOLS."
He went on to say that the original Mk II owner's manual specifically excluded Stingers. The Stinger casing is about 10 thou longer than a standard .22 LR and that causes the trouble.
I thought this was important enough to pass on.

As for favorite rounds---I usually shoot the Aguila .22LR Subsonics (Purple/Gold Box) for subs---regular bullets? I just get the little milk-carton from Wal Mart and shoot the copper-coated regular-old 22LRs. The gun itself is pretty slick---but it is a pain in the ass to clean out (about every brick of ammo, you have to re-pack the silencer).

I think I might have found my ammo. It seems to like CCI Green Tag, shoots very consistently at 50m.
Is there a way for you to pre-pack the little Supressor balls into, say, a sock made from open-weave kevlar cloth? If you could make up some of these little socks, could save some time in the end

Back when I was in New Orleans there was a med student who started an international rules kickboxing club, and we would get together and spar twice a week. At the same time the med students in our club thought it was funny that a lot of the doctors who were instructors at the med school hated boxing, and one of them called it "legalized assault".

Maybe that's why Lord Skeletor's doctor needed Class 3 stuff.
Wish to hell I could find someone here who just wanted to get together and spar. Ah well, while I'm dreaming, maybe I could have a pony.

Well, folks, I've been through not quite 2,000 rounds after sighting in and I've got the following to report:
It surely likes those CCI Green Tag rounds.
Offhand standing, unsupported right hand: 2.75" ten round group @ 25 metres
Offhand standing, unsupported left hand: just over 2" ten round group @ 25 metres
Weaver stand, right hand: 1.5" ten round group @ 25 metres
Weaver, left hand, ten rounds: 1" exactly @ 25 metres
There might be hope for the old fart yet.

When I did Peace Corps in Micronesia, though, it was easy to find young men who wanted to spar full contact because people still would get into fistfights there. There was no social conditioning or disapproval to make young men start to shy away from chances to get good at boxing. In fact, I initially had overwhelming response when I once started a community kickboxing class, but most people ended up dropping out when I introduced conditioning. :)

Well, our conditioning routine was:
1.) Jogging up and down a rocky hill for 10 minutes
2.) 20 pushups
3.) 100 crunches
4.) 4 30-second leg extensions
5.) 100 jumping jacks, or occasionally 20 hindu squats
But, yeah, that was enough to give people cold feet. :)
Actually, I'd expect as much in the US with a mainstream audience. That's why McTKD usually doesn't have any conditioning to speak of.
