I Truly Have Been Honored and...

...have had a smile put on my face all by a few sentences someone wrote about a YouTube video I posted:

"Thank God i saw this, I have seen several reassembly videos and they don't convey the right way to do it. I finally got it together after struggling for a couple of days on and off. Great video and a genuine service for humanity. 10 stars."
That was a comment left relative to my video about reassembling a Ruger Mark II pistol. While I have gotten some other nice comments, for some reason this one really hit home. It put a smile on my face because it helped another firearms enthusiast accomplish a sometimes difficult task (I use my videos when I am disassembling or reassembling my Ruger Mark II) and because he or she was nice enough to honor me by letting me know I had helped in some small way. Yeah, I know, it's a long video but it sure seems to have helped some folks.
All the best,
Glenn B

Good on ya.
I can remember trying to fix the shell ejectors on a Mossberg pump shotgun once and wound up sticking the thing in a box for a year because I got frustrated with it. Something like that would have been just the ticket.

Never understood why folks have such issues with the Ruger 2 and 3 pistoo reassembly. Just do the steps in order each time. It is no harder than doing a 1911 field strip and reassembly.

But i am gld your video blhelped someone.

Hi Boomer!!!
Yup!! The Beloved ad Cursed Ruger Mk II!!! 'Got one!!....back in '93!! 'First time doing the take down...put-back-together was a bit of a Challenge but once done...."It was a 'Done Deal!!!" I love it!!! All the fun and cuss words are gone now with the Mk-IV!!!
On a side note..I don't know the procedure for getting a FFL besides paying the fee?? Testing like getting a FAA Aviator's cert.?? Most FAA Certs.require a written test and "Practical Exam." When I went for my FAA Master Parachute Rigger's Cert., the examiner can concoct up what ever he wishes as a "Project" to test you!! It can be anything from as I heard all one examiner's "project" was making some "Closing loops for a Sport Reserve container to another examiner requiring the examinee to "Completely rebuild a Harness for a Sport Rig!!" "THAT" was a chore!! The "Closing loops" I could pop ya' 20 of 'em in 5 minutes......left handed!! Go figure!! For the "FFL 'Practical' Test"....if there is one.....Yup!... You guessed it...what better test than "Taking apart and putting back together... a Ruger MK-II!!!!!!"
Got Gunz.......OUTLAW!!!!!,
PS Larry Perkins made me "Replace a 'Blown out' Pannel in an old "Red White and Blue Mk-I Paracommander" that some Skydiver dropped off to get repaired after he blew out the pannel on opening the day before!! No problem!! In his shop,Larry had an old 31-15 Singer tricked out, stitch tension and length set perfect!!! "THAT!!" was 50% of getting the job done!!!!!!!" This was in Oct. of 1975!!
