    Got a NIB "olde timey" Ruger Wrangler!

    I bought this Ruger Wrangler last week, and have so far put 200 rounds through it...it is one of the most fun guns I have ever shot, and it's accurate too! One of my older brothers has a SA Vaquero in .45 Colt, and after shooting it a few times, I thought that I needed a SA revolver...I'm hooked!

    It has functioned perfectly with any .22 LR I have ran through it, and at 15-20 yards, I can pick off soda cans like nothing. My wife did not like it because she said it was too "busy", with the way you load it and unload it, but it's just like the big boy SAA style revolvers. I love it, and recommend it for some real plinking fun.

    Single action revolvers are about as much fun as you can have shooting. I have four, one Ruger Single Six, a Ruger Vaquero, .45 Colt, old model, and two Ubertis in .45 Colt.

    Congratulations on yours and you’ll probably have more.

    I shot my 6 1/2" single action Ruger .357 super Blackhawk convertible this past week. I only used 9mm this trip. I wish I had the long barrel single six .22LR./ .22WMR. convertible. Both are extremely accurate and fun to shoot.

    Would love to have a Single Six like that, but man, they are salty!

    The anodizing really makes the blued cylinder stand out.

    Thanks all! It's nothing special like a S&W Model 41 or something, but it sure is fun and fills a void without breaking the bank.
