Took my MK I Ruger 22 to the range yesterday and ran a hundred rounds through it. It still papers nice. It is accurate, and if there are any complaints, the barrel tends to drop while sighting, but...

Kinda got used to the 1911 during my OD green suit days in the '60s. It sort of stayed in my mind and when I could afford the price and time to train on them I bought one (well you can never have...

Hope that helps.

I'll stick to my old Ruger MK I for a plinker. Even though it is old, it does a good job. What about Walther? Don't they make a plinker?

Nothing against the 9mm and its upgrades. However, that said, the 45 ACP does not need upgrades to do the job - so I'll stick to the 1911 45 ACP.
