Merry Christmas to me!

I just won an auction on Gunbroker for a NIB Ruger 22/45 Mark III. It's my first .22. I've been looking forward to getting one for a long time, but I never could justify it until today.

So, for a mere $255 (plus shipping and transfer fees) I get a 4-inch bull-barreled .22 that I can teach my son to shoot with and will provide years of enjoyment for the family.

Merry Christmas to me! the only thing I got that was better this year was tickets to the Steelers game on Sunday (I'm an absolutely insane Steelers fanatic, as my wife will attest to), and that won't last nearly as long as the Ruger will.

I know that somebody, somewhere is going to tell me that I paid too much, but even that can't wipe the smile off my face.

I hope you all had as good a holiday as I did.

Congratulations on the Ruger, and there is hope for Steelers' fans, too.

Cowboy Nation welcomes sincere converts. :)

My wife is a Cowboys fan, and to tell you the truth, I would rather have the Steelers lose every game next year than have the Cowboys ever win another Super Bowl.

At least she consented to the gun, which is one of her redeeming virtues.

Ruger makes good .22 pistols; I have a KMKIII512 on my wish list.

Great pistol, I have an identical one in my safe now. It's very accurate gives hours of cheap shooting that's still fun. I think you got a good price so enjoy.
