Finally Picked Up Ruger

Ruger Mark III has been at my FFL guys house since 10:25 Wed. Him and his wife had some doctors appointments, he called last night about 6pm but I didn't feel like getting out to get it. Picked it up this morning.
It is Stainless with 5.5inch barrel, came with extra magazine, rail, case, paperwork, envelope with empty shell had a date of 2007, I guess this is about when this pistol was made, brand new looking Ruger holster, probably won't use the holster but hey free is free.

Nice, I think you'll like it. I have a 6.8" Competition bull bbl and just picked up a MKIII Hunter 5.5"bbl TALO. Original owner put 2 mags through it and wanted to trade it for a rifle. I made him a cash offer that he accepted I took it to the range and put 224 rounds through it and it performed great! They are very accurate and in my opinion I think the 5.5" balances a little better. I used Federal Target bulk at my last range trip but in the past I've fed the Competition all kinds of anything I could get my hands on and haven't had any complaints.
Congratulations!
PS: I like the chamber flag, I've done the same thing, easy on the spring.

Thanks Mike, this is number two, owned a Competition Target for a long time. The plan for this one is to have the barrel threaded for silencer.
I wanted a MKIII Talo Hunter but didn't want to put that much money into it.

Yeah, I saw your posts about getting a silencer. That will be a really nice shooter

I know what you mean, at 50' I have to bring the target in to see where I hit. I need to find a place to do some plinking so I can hear it hit. I was just looking at both of mine when I saw your post. My Comp looks just like yours and the Talo doesn't have the thumb rest. I was trying my grip on both and it's really not an issue, don't want to change either. I do think I prefer the Vnotch rear sight on the talo but only more range time will tell me the story on that.
BTW, Nice shooting!

An almost perfect gun Arland, my dad bought me my first Ruger .22 pistol in I believe 1952. It has the red eagle grips that were changed to black when Strum passed away. The serial number is 12564, I was 9 years old and it was my first pistol. I'd guess that it is safe to say that in the 60+ years that I've owned it that there have been well over 150,000 rounds fired through it. It's one hell of a gun, it runs today like it did when I first got it.

That's way cool Brother. They really are fine shooting pistols.
I will buy one of those Talo Hunters if I ever find a good price on one. There prices are high on Gunbroker.

When I got the gun I believe it was the only gun made by Strum Ruger, they just started their company in 1949. I'll never forget my dad telling me to really take care of it, he bought it new and said he paid $18.00 for it.
