I was down at the gun shop the other day when I spied a new addition in the display counter. It was the new Ruger 22/45 Lite and I was immediately drawn to it. I’d guess the styling of the pistol is what first attracted my attention, and when I hefted it I could see why they named it the 22/45 Lite. I know last month I reviewed the Ruger 10-22 International rifle, so I guess I’m stuck on the ubiquitous .22 rim fire cartridge for some reason.
It’s certainly NOT because the ammo is as cheap or plentiful as it used to be, I just grew up with a .22 rim fire and I’ve always liked them. I am also a big fan on the 1911 and this Ruger is so similar in feel and has almost the same ergonomics as a 1911. I am drawn to it as a training/practice gun.
