Life Is Full Of Surprises
"I want to shoot standing up, like everyone else!" said my 90 year old Mother In Law after our weekly steel practice at the Carmi, Illinois Rifle Club. She was shooting my Ruger Mk III Target model with a Bushnell red dot, but she had to sit as she shot because of the weight. She has scoliosis and is impaired by a stroke that maimed her left side. I bought a Ruger Mk III 22/45 Lite, put a Bushnell red dot on it, and a compensator. Now she is ringing the plates while she stands. She LOVES her Ruger. Many Thanks to all the good folks at Ruger for bringing joy to our lives. PS: She took up shooting at age 89 with my Ruger Mk III target model. Trips to the range invigorate her more than you can imagine.
