No question the buck mark for me. Ruger is built well, attractive, accurate, and reliable, but also extremely boring for me. My mark iii 6" barrel I shot 2 mags worth and never shot it again in the next 10 years. Great gun, but boring Imo.Which would you rather shoot and why?
Personally, I grew up shooting a Ruger Mk.1 and I never did like it.
It's too light in the front end and has always been difficult holding a steady aim.
How about you?
I don't really know why I found it so boring. Combo of a lot of things I think, including balance, grip angle, action?, not sure.Too accurate?
I had a Mk4 Hunter, and it was boringly accurate. I could ring 6" steel at about 60 yards 10 for 10 when I was doing my part. I replaced it with a Volquartsen.I don't really know why I found it so boring. Combo of a lot of things I think, including balance, grip angle, action?, not sure.
I know that when I was young one of the first pistols I ever shot was a ruger mark 1 (or maybe mark ii I don't know). Honestly I felt exactly the same about it at that time (other than it was fun to feel the gun in the hand for any kid).
Good test! Those are the results I would have predicted based only on reputation for the 41, not personal experience; but personal experience with the other 2. Would be really cool to do those 3 along with a colt woodsman and a high standard (not sport king or that other budget version -cant recall it's name at the moment).Well, got a new to me Ruger. So I thought I would try this.

Guess I need to dig some other Rugers out of the safe, and give this another try.
Maybe some different ammo.
10 shots, 30 feet, off rest.
