    My/our actual shotgun. The meh photo was taken by my wife.

    ..........

    We went to a local gun show last Saturday. Much to my surprise my wife found a Ruger GP100 seven shot that she really liked. We had discussed buying another full-sized .357 as shooter, and selling the Security Six (I have two people wanting it) since parts are scarce (not that anything breaking is a real concern).

    So we came home with the GP100, seven shot, SS, six inch barrel.

    The incorrect, and unnecessary, capitalization is annoying.

    Eh, it's only dead because Kirstang and I aren't posting how we've blown our disposable income for the month, every month.

    Didn't realize Ruger hopped on the seven shot train with the GP100. Modern metallurgy is a gift. GP100 is a girthy gun.

    Modern metallurgy is nice...but...if I was going to do A LOT of serious .357 mag shooting I would've went with a six shot. The cylinder walls seem very thin when compared to the Security-Six, and even the SP101.

    It's not an issue. We shoot .38s mostly, but do practice with full load .357s.

    I seriously enjoy the .22s for relaxing & inexpensive shooting.

    We now have cousin guns.

    Yesterday I/we purchased what might be a semi-rare revolver:
    Ruger .22 Cal.
    New Model Single-Six

    In stainless steel, with a 4.62" barrel, manufactured in '74.

    If the serial number info on the official Ruger site is correct, this is a very early New Model.

    If the info I gathered from various websites is correct, Ruger didn't make a lot of Single-Six in stainless with a 4 5/8" barrel, esp early in New Model production.

    Which doesn't translate to $$ because not many .22s are highly sought after.

    I notice that I didn't mention a new-to-me handgun.

    WARNING: .22 CAL content! :eek:
    :p

    I had previously mentioned that the old Iver Johnson DA .22 revolver had to be retired because the cylinder started to slip. After much research I decided against dropping the $$ on a new .22 revolver because of the cost, and the fact that so many of them, even the "better" ones from S&W and Ruger, had problems.

    The H&R 999 Sportsman Deluxe caught my eye, but they are apparently quite popular with collectors. Clean ones bring $450.00 plus.

    I ran across a High Standard Sentinel Deluxe in VG condition at a pawn shop. They didn't move much on the price, but since the gun was so clean, and it was still a good deal, I bought it.

    Later I'll try posting some images using my phone.....if anyone shows any interest.

    ----------------------------

    The Ruger LCP II definitely requires some adjustments, but I've been very impressed with how it handles a variety of ammo, and the accuracy. My wife rarely carries it, so it's now unofficially mine (OK, still ours, but more mine, if that makes sense).

    I should've specified the .22 revolvers are double-action. It seems that manufacturers have problems with the cylinder timing.

    My two Ruger single-action .22 revolvers, and the High Standard, have no issues, specifically shaving bullets.
