If the reviews are good, maybe there's one in my future when I relocate to a free state.
    If you need Steel (Il thing) and Mag (versatile, etc.) then you picked the right one with a RR that will be in your hand very soon.

    If you lived somewhere else and only shot pop-bottles then at some unknown future date you could get an nu-proven model.

    Micro: A new-release low-margin price-point product usually is a long-term play for market share rather than EPS.

    Macro: The entire industry has been in the outhouse for 2 years; postponed demand and 'Columbine talk' will generate sales volume for the group.

    My "Mad Money" call = BUY to hold, not trade.

    2-cents gratefully refunded upon request.

    As I get older, "long term plays" are not as much of an option. Being in equities is no place for someone in advancing years especially if they think they may have to draw on their funds. Unfortunately the stagnant economy and quantitative easing over ten years left seniors with few options when CD rates were below 1%. Personally I am waiting for the China trade deal to come to fruition and will divest a large percentage of my (small) holdings. Our investment club did well with Sturm Ruger over a few years and then sold it off about 14-16 months ago. (on a brighter note...Microsoft is on a tear today pre-market)

    Here is a Gunblast review of the Wrangler. Reads like the grip frame, cylinder frame, and ejector housing, are all aluminum.

    Now I'm wanting one, again. From the article.....

    Accuracy was tested at a distance of twenty-five yards, with the Wrangler secured into my Ransom Master Series machine rest. Accuracy was superb! I had expected decent accuracy, but was surprised at the level of accuracy exhibited by the Ruger Wrangler, especially for a single-action revolver that sells at this low price. Shown are pictures of the smallest and largest groups fired. These five-shot groups measured between one-half inch and one and one-eighth inches at twenty-five yards. Amazing!
