Ha just thought I would ask. I've got a Dell Deminsion 4700 desktop PC I'd like to know if you would be interrested in trading for you Ruger. The PC has DVD/CD burner , Printer / scanner I also have a wireless router , PC cart(Cheapo). I have all the PC disk for it and push come to shove Ill throw in a real nice office chair that has all the adjustments you could want on a chair.
