Watched Guns & Ammo TV last night and they selected a Ruger stainless MK III Target to do their torture test. Now, I've seen them boil a gun, bury it in sand, throw it up on the roof and bury it in mud, Freeze it, drive over a gun with a truck/SUV. Lots of different stuff that simulates an EXTREME real life accident. Those two clowns chose to use the poor MK III for batting practice. Yep, one guy threw the gun to another who would swing and hit it with a wooden bat. They crushed that poor thing. Bent the barrel, smashed in the trigger guard, broke the rosewood grips. Then tried to fire it. They had to straighten the frame & bbl with a vise and cheater pipe. Got the bolt to close and fired one round. So that made the pistol pass their test. I would rather have taken the baseball bat to these two marginal felons than do that to a once very nice Ruger 22!!!!!
