My first Ruger

I bought this a few weeks ago at the gun show & I love this revolver. It's the first revolver I've ever purchased. I have an old Rossi that was my Dad's but nothing compared to this very nice Ruger. I think I'm becoming a revolver guy, thanks, Ruger!



Here is my first target, from 10 yards, started aiming 2" high, after the 3rd shot realized this gun shoots to point of aim moved my next 3 shots down, first 1", then next two on the bullseye. All of these shots were DA & I've never shot DA that well with my DA/SA semi auto's, what a fabulous gun.

Nice MC, there's no turning back now, revolvers are a blast to shoot and collect.

Nice Match Champion. My first handgun purchase (1993) was a GP100 and today it will get a little range time.
