When I was young I use to shoot 22 Match pistols in NRA sponsored matches. Never won a single one but was fair to middling and loved it. Shot a venerable S&W 41, lightly tuned by a smith. With family and two jobs I gave it up and sold the gun....dumb move. Later bought a Beretta Model 89 Match pistol , long out of production but never found a good place to shoot in Auburn so gave it up again plus at 42 oz the otherwise fine M 89 was too heavy. Just gained access to a great place to shoot so started looking for another pistol. Being frugal I did not want to pay big bucks but wanted an accurate shooter with a nice trigger, typically 1300-1400 USD for a nice one, couple of grand for a really fine one. I did my research and bought a LNIB Ruger 22/45 off Gunbroker for $300. arrived unfired. Took it apart, installed a Tandemkross trigger and Volsquartsen sear, along with a TK hammer bushing and Hogue rubber grips off Ebay , total today about $435. New Rugers come with a near 7 lb trigger, thanks to lawyers and mine breaks crisply at 2 pounds and 4 ounces. ( 1.02 kilos for my more learned friends, or druggies ) Accuracy is better than I can use . Only trouble was my eyes, cannot see like I once did so am looking at a micro-reflex red dot, probably a Burris with a 3 or 8 mil dot. Should weigh in at about 34 oz with the sight. My daughter's response was dad you are too old , when can I have it !!! She already has my tricked out 10/22. Need to shoot about 4-500 rounds through it to set the springs . Then find time to see how a 76 year old can do. I will never shoot competitively again but do expect to thoroughly enjoy taking a break from the drawing board. Life was getting into a rut ! Except for the forum, of course,. Gaines PS, I use to be able to post pictures here, seemed easy, but perhaps because of age or changes I cannot manage it anymore....was goint o post one of the pistol.
