If you move it back to the safe position before ejecting the spent shell it works fine. I guess that is their way of making sure your rifle has the safety on when a new round is put into the chamber.

Mine won't go to safety position unless it's cocked. which after you've shot, it aint. If I'm just ejecting an unused round, it throws it completely clear of the gun.

I just spoke with Ruger customer service, and they said the technique to use, is to tilt the gun slightly when you eject the bullet. Since I love the gun, I guess I can live with this, but it would sure be nice to just drop the block and leter rip!

Did some sighting in today with the 204 Ruger, a dime covers a five shot group at 100 yards. Will fine tune it some more, looks like it will punch holes when I control my shot better.

Sounds like a shooter. I wan't to try a 20 Practical some day. Just shows some potential to be an easy round to load and use. 20's have really sparked my interest.
