    I haven't shot one, but I have seen ads for them on the internet for as low as $180. $190 to $200 seems to be the everyday street price.

    I'm still waiting to read a range report from someone that isn't in the gun media.

    I bought one from SportsmansOutdoorSUperStore.com for 179.99 shipped.
    It shoots real well, about like a regular single six. Mine shoots to the left a bit, so I aim to the right a bit.

    A slight twerk of the site would fix that.
    I have never shot one or the med sized revolvers with the non adjustable rears.looks like they sell tons of the smaller Bearcats and Vaquero ones with that style though.

    How does this compare to the heritage offerings?

    I don't want to twerk on the front site as it may twerk it off the barrel.
    It's a lot nicer revolver than the heritage and better quality. I have a heritage also I bought for $99+tax. The Ruger is twice as nice and better constructed and finished. They are both about equal in accuracy with a fixed sight. The Heritage, you can get a 22 magnum cylinder for it, if it didn't come with one.

    I got a black one and then bought the bronze. I have a couple of heritage pistols too. The Ruger is a better pistol in my opinion. Finish, fit, feel, cylinder lockup and timing all have a more precise feel. And no parts are falling off...which does tend to happen with the Herritage pistols.
    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———

    I had a fixed-sight Vaquero in .357 that shot about an inch to the left at 30 feet. Not a lot you can do about it, that I am aware of, without filing the front sight or something drastic like that.

    It doesn't have that stupid safety on the recoil shield. Reason enough for me.
    Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop.

    Had an opportunity to shoot one.
    Compared to my single six it’s not nearly as smooth in function but it’s still a hoot to shoot.
    Then again, it’s less than half the price of a single six.
    Much nicer than the Heritage line as well.

    I’ll definitely buy one eventually but will likely wait to get a used one.
