    22/45™ Mark III™

    The .22 caliber Ruger 22/45 Mark III pistols (including Hunter) have the same grip angle and fire control locations as the famous 1911 pistol, making them the perfect low-cost trainer.

    I have shot this pistol before. It is awesome!

    P.S.
    Taurus does make a 9mm. The PT-111

    **** Ruger. The son of a bitch who owns the company believes civilians shouldn't be allowed magazines with a capacity greater than 10.

    I did not know that. It makes me rethink things.

    Ruger does make great weapons however.

    If you've never shot anything before, and aren't overly concerned with defense, get yourself a decent .22 rifle. I recommend the Remington M597, though a Ruger 10/22 is the old standby.

    If defending your home is a priority with a secondary desire to blow the crap out of stuff in the woods, you can't go worng with a basic pump action shotgun. I recommend the Remington 870 Express.

    If you really want a handgun, I agree with Oldman's recommendation of a 357 Mag. Shoot, you can even get it in a snubby if you want to be able to CCW someday. 9mm semi-auto's are fun to shoot, pretty easy to handle for a beginner and have reasonable power. You'd be hard pressed to go wrong with one. I've owned a Ruger P89, a Glock 22 and shot or carried as a LEO the H&K USP and the Sig P226. The sig was by far my favorite, but it also costs the most.

    Yaaa for reading, thanks Phrost. I have ~2000rnds of CCI Blue Tag .22LR ammo in my basement. My father used to do Biathlon (Skiing/Running & Marksmanship) and would buy ammo in bulk. He doesn't compete anymore but I ended up with the ammo. Lord only knows why. I was thinking of trying to put it through the Mossberg .22LR I have but the thing is old, and heavy and a bear to shoot. So, I was thinking a pistol.

    I've looked into getting a license/CCW permit in NY where I live but it's never made it to the top of the list. But, I'll look into getting a plinker and getting used to a pistol. Don't plan to carry daily, but I figure it is a good skill to have. I've handled rifles for years but only ever shot a pistol once or twice.

    Bill Ruger is deand and gone now, so I won't hold that against them anymore. If you do get a Ruger MKII or III, field stripping them is a total PITA for the first few times. They are great guns for the money. I probably put over 10,000 rounds through mine with no problem, except when I tired to shoot some of the Winchester ammo. That sutff caused alot of jams.

    I'll buy a Ruger when it comes with a 12 round capacity.
