I am a new shooter with both a 1911 and .38 spl revolver. I didn't have to shop for ammunition very long before realizing you can shoot .22LR for about 10% of the cost of .45 ACP. At first I was looking at .22LR conversions for my 1911, but after reading forum comments on them I get the impression they are finicky as well as expensive. Several posts recommended the Ruger 22/45 as an alternative. You get a gun that feels like a 1911 with similarly placed controls. Plus for about the same money as a conversion you get a whole gun designed to shoot .22LR from the ground up. I researched the 22/45s and after reading the review on Gunblast.com decided on the model 10140 with replaceable wood grip panels.
I watched several websites to find one in stock. None of the "competitive" sites had them. Got several stockwatch emails from one, but they were always out of stock by the time I got them. Finally saw it in stock at Bud's early one Friday mornng, so decided to pull the trigger on the order. That was 2/24. Bud's said they would ship in 3 - 7 days. Didn't actually ship until 3/7, 9 business days later. Calls and email to customer service were a waste of time. After 8 days got a blanket email saying that Bud's was swamped with orders and shipments were delayed as a result. I get it, but here's the rub: Bud's charged my CC on the 24th and then didn't ship for 12 days. Most online retailers won't charge your card until thay ship, especially when they know your order is going to be delayed.
I picked up the gun from my FFL Friday. (He confirmed that gun sales are through the roof this year.) It was obvious it would need a good cleaning before being shot as it was loaded with gun grease. I cleaned it that night and got to experience first hand what so many reuger pistol owners complain about. These guns are really tight. Follow the directions in the manual and watch the video on Ruger's website. It only took a few whacks from a small rubber hammer to unseat the receiver from the gripframe. Took several hard whacks from a large rubber mallet to reseat the grip frame.
This is a real good looking gun. Even the wife likes it. With the heavy barrel, light grip frame, and nice grips the balance feels real good. Can't wait to get it to the range. I'll post another review when I do.
