Hello everyone- I'm a relative new-be to handguns from central Iowa. I grew up on a farm where we had shotguns and rifles, but I'd never been around handguns much. Enter two son-in-laws that are gun handgun owners. One is an enthusiast, the other is in law enforcement. It only took them once taking me to the range and I was hooked. That was a little over a year ago, and since then, I've acquired a few of my own. One Sig, one S&W, and the rest have been Rugers. What can I say, I just like the way they're built. Also, I'm a revolver fan. There's something about the simple functioning of a revolver that my mechanical side really appreciates. Anyway, I've already posted once and gotten a bunch of responses, so I appreciate the feedback, and look forward to reading more about Rugers from folks that own them. Thanks for being so welcoming.
