decided to put a few down range with this gem yesterday as I was breaking in the P365, what a nice piece of equipment!  it was windy as hell and I still shot some small groups!  thought I wished I had gotten a 4" barrel, but the 6" shoots so well.   Glad I got it out.  I was shooting 38 special and 38 +P, both shot well. Big Smile
 
take em!

Nice looking revolver.   I used to have 3 S&W 686s 2.5in, 4in, 6in (7round cylinder) and 3 629s 4in, 6in, 8 3/8 in.  I had to sell them all... broke my heart.  Also had a stainless Colt Python... yep, it's gone too. LOVE stainless wheel guns, though...

Bugs you need to update your profile. Still has you residing in Florida. Good morning to you. Glad to be here myself.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

One of these days, maybe I'll get back around to a stainless revolver... dang, you guys have opened up my "wish list".  Just no way I can replace what I once had "cost effectively".  I paid $300.00 for my Python in perfect condition, $250.00 - $300.00 each for my Smiths.  
The Rugers are excellent.  I've got a buddy who has a couple... have fired them at some of the IDPA spinoff matches.

I have a ruger super Blackhawk in 44mag, and I love that gun.
I also have a ruger Alaskan guide, 2.5" barrel, in 454 Casull, and I hate that gun. It is a supremely potent anti-bear gun: if the projectile doesn't kill him, the concussion should at least knock one of us out cold.

Damn, I might need a revolver too. I've always wanted a color case hardened revolver, but it can't be in some caliber that requires me smelting lead.

My wish is for a Stainless Ruger Bisley Hunter 7.5" barrel topped with a Leupold two-ta scope.

you're 100%  right about "cost effectively".... they are 2x-3x more than that now.

If I ever get a chance to Elk hunt in bear country, my buddy has a couple 44 Mags I can pick from, or I'll be adding one more to the pile.  Big Grin

That Ruger is a great gun. I have only shot them in 4" and it handled real well. They are no doubt strong like any Ruger revolver. Mine is a Redhawk.
My .357 is an oldie N Frame I traded for a 1973 Suzuki TS185.

WOW Doug! A Smith Mod. 27 with a 3 5/8 inch barrel. I noticed the jeweled hammer, and trigger so it must of had some custom work done.

I'm a sucker for .357Magnums. Shame I don't shoot them as much as I used to.

I have a Redhawk in 45 LC.  Love that pistol.  My buddy Richard did a trigger job on it for me, made it nice and smooth.

Load that thing up with some 300 grain hornadys and a stiff charge of h110 and it will really numb the hands and wrists.  I need to get one in .357.  Its a great caliber. 
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

Nice gp-100 !  I had the 6” with full lug. It handled the hottest mag loads without any problems.  I wish I still had it.
