This is a discussion on Why No 22/45 Forum? within the Ruger Standard forums, part of the Ruger Standard & MK Pistols category; I've noticed that the 22/45 and the Ruger Mark III & IV 22/45 pistols have sorta been left out in the cold on this site. ...
I've noticed that the 22/45 and the Ruger Mark III & IV 22/45 pistols have sorta been left out in the cold on this site. Lots of folks own and shoot these versions of the Ruger Mark variety and there's several ways that these fine pistols can be utilised for fun or serious .22 rimfire duty.
Considering the forum was originally a dedicated forum for LCP fans the Mark series pistols has been a side note all along. Plenty of Ruger or rimfire forums to go around that are centered around the Mk 22's already. Being a forum junkie and not a "fan boy" (despite being accused of such) of any of them I'm willing to jump in where ever an interesting topic arises.
Good idea to append 22/45. Easier for my old eyes to locate. I have a basic Mark III 22/45 Bull Barrel that I just fell in love with. She is no frankenruger and still mostly stock but I love her and take her out often. Since I have decided to forever keep it active I am going to invest in keeping it range ready. Not many upgrades planned but still going to get her a make over.
But wait! Where is the love? Myself and one other person on this forum seem to be the only two that have INVESTED in one for Small pocket pistol training. And even more crazy is the fact that 380 is going up to sky high Prices and a Severe shortage that is only going to get worse. When the LCP 22.cal was announced I thought surely he would be a block buster. Very little post about them on any forum. And given the fact that so many owners cannot even shoot a 380 worth a darn in the first place, boggles my mind even more.
So it not a dedicated LCP forum, why not the MK 22.cals?
The LCPII22LR is a great trainer and practice tool. Not a bad choice for pocket carry if that is all you have. I know now why for years all my friends pocket carry the LCP in 380. It can be a reliable and safe tool. This is just one of many on the market for pocket carry and I love these little shooters.
*There have been others here that have chimed in on its issues and or virtues.
*The LCPII22LR's I have and have seen running have turned out to be reliable. Like most things on the web you seem to get more complaints than positive data.
*This forum is dedicated to the LCP and with time I would hope that the more people get involved and share their findings on the LCPII22LR. With the cost of ammo for 380 this is a good tool to work with. The price is high and it only comes with one mag but I found this to be a good purchase.
*Good luck to any that have any one of the Ruger LCP's. I have been forever changed on my opinion of them for the positive.
We don't have any "statues" that are causing terrorists to go nuts and want to tear them down, and from my experience and learning, just about every household, farm and business is protected by their owners.
I was at our local Farm & Fleet store the other day to get some tick repellent granules that I spread around where my wife hangs laundry to get that fresh air aroma that puts us to sleep at night and then all around my shooting bench to prevent hitchhiker ticks getting a free ride on my hide. So, I always stop at the sporting goods area in this store, if only to see what "NEW" brand of .22 rimfire they recently received. The handgun centerfire ammunition shelves are empty, there is no centerfire boxes of rounds from .25 ACP all the way through to .454 Casull ammunition. Our local folks seem to be stocking up so they have rounds on hand, just in case any of the "crazies" from Minneapolis make any wrongful decisions to visit Northwestern Wisconsin and tamper with our laid-back lifestyle. That would be a huge mistake on their part.
