    That's why I don't go to the gun shops anymore...

    My wallet is light all the time! :(

    That's a good look'in Wheel gun XShooter. :)

    I loved shooting mine w/ light loads & didn't mind it so much when shooting heavier +P+ .38spl. The .357Mag loads were quite the handfull though, & after a box of 50 I'd be done shooting it for the day.

    IMHO, it's the Perfect size/weight for CCW or bug. ;)

    yep, this one is for CCW. The full size 1911 is a bit hard to conceal in the summer since I like to wear t-shirts. I really wanted an older Colt Detective Special, but they have gotten very pricey and the Ruger will outlive me anyway.

    Contrary to the opinion of some, you cant have too much gun stuff and guns. Its been proved by scientists in white coats. As for your wallet, hang it, you cant take the stuff with you, anyho the guns worth money, you have 'invested' it.

    It is my understanding that the intent of these locks that are now coming with all new firearms is that they are to be used for securing shackles on corrupt politicians someday?

    Seriously, the cylinder is opened, and then the hasp goes through any chamber hole, and then you snap the lock shut. I doubt I'll ever use it.

    I have one of the same Ruger padlocks, I use it on my garden shed door!

    It says made in China on the bottom, and the plastic bit that says Ruger fell off, apart from that it's doing a fine job of securing the lawn mower from use by unauthorised, un trained or young users.

    So the lock keeps you from closing the cylinder?!! :eek::confused: What a cluster ***k!! :mad:

    (10 minutes later) Now that I've cooled off a little (I HATE LOCKS ON WEAPONS!! :mad::mad:), I guess if Ruger needs to Appeeze the Anti's... that lock would be the least intrusive to their design.

    If I ever buy another "new" Ruger & it comes w/ that type of lock, I'll drill a hole in the case handle (like they were done in the old days).

    Tanks 4 the heads up... :)

    Then I probably shouldn't tell you about the "spent" cartridge case it came with? That is so an FFL in California can send it in to law enforcement for future forsensic use. Should I send it to California since I don't live there?

    Yeah... that crap makes me mad too!! :mad:

    No, don't send it to them!! Mail it to me!! I'd LOVE to hammer it till it is PAPER THIN..... then I'd send to to them!!! :D

    That reminds me... when I found out my second X-wife had cheated on me.... I plucked the carat diamond out of her Wedding ring & flattened it (ring) w/ a 5lb sledgehammer till it was foil thin!! :mad:

    FWIW - Flattening her wedding ring was the BEST therapy ever!! ;)

    have the same thing (stainless 2")-what a tank!

    357 is just violent out of this, but the 38 is hardly noticable (except for the muzzel flash)

    nice buy!

    I, myself, love the free brass that comes with the new guns. I just wish that more came with them. And that they used better brass. When I bought my 454, if came with a 45 Colt case. :( Y'all got any idea how expensive 454 brass is?

    I also like that lock. It looks like it would be usable for something, unlike the ones with the cables (that I have piles of, everywhere, still in their little bags).
