One of my friends had one of these Rugers in high school and I bet we shot a train car load of military surplus .30 cal through it. My memory may be faulty but I think we got old ammo for .50 cents or a dollar per box of 50.

One of our favorite games was to get those wooden paint stirrers that they gave away at the hardware store—where we bought ammo sometimes too. We would sharpen one end to a point then stick them in the ground at various distances, then see how many shots it would take to shoot them in two. I remember the first one I shot straight through the middle and the perfect round hole in made. I was astounded by how accurate it was and I do remember it was LOUD! But we didn’t care, we teenagers liked loud music, pipes, etc. It really was a great gun.
