Ruger's are good weapons. ILL. Dept. of Corrections were issued Ruger 223 cal. "long rifles", so to speak. Came with peep sights. I hate peep sights. "Both eyes down the barrel". My favorite Ruger? "Single Six". Back in the '50's, it was used in Arva Ojala(sp?) "fast draw
classes. In the T.V. series "Gunsmoke", the guy at the other end of the street, drawing against Matt Dillon? Yup, it was Arva. Oh, and his two best students, and best a "fast draw") Ready? Jerry Lewis and Sammy Davis Jr. !! True story(s).
