Hello everyone. I just joined the Pistol World forums. It looks like a great place to get info and advice. I just got my first handgun for Christmas this year. It's a blued Ruger Target model .22/45 Mark III with the 5-1/2 barrel. I am very happy with the gun even though I have only shot 200 or so rounds so far. I need to join the local gun club so I have a place to target practice regularly. This could turn into a very addictive hobby, as if I don't have enough of those already! Thanks for letting be introduce myself.
