I love shooting my little Ruger MkIII. It's so light and easy to shoot with super cheap ammo. It's just a really fun little gun to shoot. But, man, I HATE to disassemble and reassemble it for cleaning. There's just something wrong with having to use a hammer to disassemble and reassemble a pistol! The barrel and frame are so friggin' tight, there's no other way to get it apart. Thankfully, I have enough practice now that I can get the mainspring pin back in with only a couple of swear words instead of an endless string of profanity. Why, oh why, did they design the pistol this way?! And why the heck did they add that stupid magazine safety to it?! It's just one extra unnecessary step of annoyance... Sorry for the rant...but I just finished cleaning it and had to vent with a group of folks who might understand.
