So can you fan the hammer on these things?

supposedly you can.  I have not tested this yet as I do not have any snap caps for dry firing.  However, if I cock the hammer back and hold down on the trigger, I can cycle through the entire cylinder while moving the hammer back and forth... so I think it will work.

Who would have thought a single action, 6 shot 22 with fixed sights would be the beez kneez at the NRA show. 

Oh, and the Henry side loader. 

Ray Ray, believe me, at the media event Ruger flew me out for... they devoted three hours to the gun... out of 4 days of new product demos. 

I believe they sold in a week what they planned to all year, or what heritage sells. 

Ita just that it is a cheap gun for around $200 that is both fun and cheap to shoot. Add in reliable, good build quality and lifetime warranty and you have a winner. 

I suppose first hint it would be a hit would be seeing the former Delta and Seals at the training academy, Ie the sniper instructors, have the biggest smiles shooting the Wrangler.

I finally got to try out the Wrangler I picked up a few weeks ago. The fit and finish are good IMO.  There are some gaps in the fit of the grip frame but not anything I'm concerned about in a $200 gun.  Great job with the cerakote and bluing.  The trigger is a bit heavy and not as good as my Single Six.  It will probably smooth out with use. My Single Six probably has a bazillion rounds through it.  The Wrangler's loading gate is a little stiff but that will work in.

How does it shoot?  From a rest when I was doing my job with the right ammo I was able to shoot 2"+ groups.  About the same as my Single Six. I could probably do better if i wasnt over 100 years old.  The sights were dead on for windage.  Elevation varied depending on what ammo (high velocity, standard velocity, and bullet weight) but that can be expected.  Reliability was 100%.

IMO Ruger has a winner here.  Great utility grade revolver at a fraction of the price of anything comparable.  Half the price of a Single Six. I've seen the Heritage go for $130 online but add in shipping and transfer fees vs $200 I paid from dealer stock and it's a Ruger!

@fishnut you can fan these but the stiffer action and checkering on the hammer will probably chew up your hand.

I'm definitely getting one of these after they get the kinks worked out of the first run. It'll be under $200 I'm betting everywhere during the end of year holidays. Its a better heritage (better sights better everything) and the price is right. I hope they make a 6". Squirrels won't stand a chance.

Funny post really

    • N.J. pays Second Amendment group (NJ2AS) another $87,500 totaling $230,000 in legal victories! January 18, 2020 NJ2AS News 0 Comment Uncategorized For the third time, NJ paid our legal fees for another Second Amendment legal victory. This brings the total that New Jersey paid to NJ2AS $230,000 in legal awards. NJ2AS attorney Richard Gutman, NJ2AS President Alex “Alejandro” Roubian, NJ2AS legislative advisor Robert Barush, proudly stand in front the check for our legal fees. In June 2019 the New Jersey State Police once again lost against NJ2AS in an 8-year-long legal battle to receive a copy of their investigative manual that is used while investigating firearm applicants. Shortly after, New Jersey, once again, lost a motion to have the State pay for our legal fees. The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) was awarded $87,500 for legal fees. In 2016, The Record stated: “The most expensive case in the documents reviewed by The Record involved the Second Amendment Society seeking firearms regulations, costing the administration $101,626.” NJ2AS President Alex “Alejandro” Roubian proudly stated “NJ2AS will stop at nothing, ever, until all unconstitutional infringements on our right to keep and bear arms in NJ are gone.  We will seek out and expose every violation, every person who is complicit in those violations and every government entity that participates and/or covers them up.  We will bring into the light the negative impact of NJ’s poorly worded and over-criminalized legislation. We will use any and all legal means available to do so.” Frank Fiamingo, NJ2AS’ former President (2010-2015) that helped spearhead this lawsuit stated “I would like to formally express my gratitude to Attorney Richard Gutman and the members, leaders and advisers of the NJ2AS that made this significant win possible. The attorney General of NJ and the NJ State Police have been put on notice that the firearms owners of NJ will not sit back while their individual rights are constantly being trampled. It may take time to fight the unfair and unconstitutional behavior of the three branches of New Jersey’s government, but we are in this fight for the long run and this win is only the beginning. Under President Alexander Roubian, the members and legal advisers of the NJ2AS intend to file additional lawsuits which we fully believe will be successful. We continue to ask for your support as the NJ2AS moves forward in the quest to further the legitimate right of individuals to keep and bear arms wherever they have the right to be. This includes the right of the individual to carry firearms for defensive purposes.” Governor Murphy’s administration did not respond for comment.     Another group that has done more for NJ Gun Owners than the limp dicked NRA!   Happy and Sad: cid:BD4934AA-D941-4662-9885-C84025A71359/bee9abe4-843a-7b8c-c590-12bd72f57196@yahoo.com
    • Put an illegal alien inside the same cage and the left would lose their shit. Put women's rights marchers inside a 1A cage and the left would lose their shit. Put Muslims inside a cage..... You get the idea.
    • GSSC is owned by several forum members/supporters.  We have a monthly shoot there as well. 
    • Both of the above locations are not too far away from me.  It looks like Shore Shot is more popular on Instagram and Yelp. But can anyone give any feedback between the two?   Thank you
    • It's not only a matter of knowing what they are doing, it is a matter of making remarkable progress in the face of unrelenting backstabbing and mudslinging from treasonous progressive slugs. MAGA!
