I like your Ruger.

It's a decent pistol, but the front sight had loosened three times in about 150 rounds. I finally just tightened it up with a dose of red Loctite, it should be on there forever now.

The small hex bolt used on the pivot point of the barrel/receiver also kept turning out, so blue Locktite fixed that.

To maximize the ruger's potential, it will also need to have a competition trigger group installed. I haven't had it measured yet, but it must have a 4-5 lb trigger letoff as it comes from Ruger. It needs to be down around 2.5 lb's for any kind of half-serious indoor competition shooting.

I'll probably have $1000 into the MKIV by the time it's properly 'sorted out', and that's before I put a set of left-handed target grips on it.
