    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.

    For real, Mon! Good intro. As a gentle reminder, we love pictures!
    I'm like you on revolver vs auto. I bought my first auto almost a year ago, and I've bought another since.

    Welcome From the Nation of Texas.

    Yeah, revolvers are hard to beat. I've never had one stovepipe yet.
    Buster, Kidding around? Who me... :dunno:

    Blluenos diaz compadre!!!!!!! Welcome to the forum from deep south Texas. Revolvers? I cut my teeth on my dad's S&W Mod. 28 Highway Patrolman. His duty gun in .357. Literally, cause he use to hang the gun in a Sam Browne rig on the end of my crib. I started sneanking it off to a range in Jr. High with all the ammo I foundin drawers and ash trays. My first handgun was a Super BlkHk..
