I recently decided to try a single action revolver from Ruger. I wanted a "cowboy" looking gun but didn't want one of their "convertible" ones. I asked the sales person if they had any single tens in stock since none were in the cases. As soon as I took it out of the box and held it in my hand I had to buy it. I have large hands and could comfortable hold the grips with my whole hand and the gun was very well balanced. I loved the stainless body and the fiber optic sights. It is not just a good looking revolver, it shoots great and is very accurate. The longer barrel adds to the sight radius and the fiber optic sights gave my old eyes a good sight picture. Obviously there is next to no recoil and the single action trigger is smooth as butter. I had no problems ejecting the spent casings and put 150 rounds though the gun right out of the box with no issues. If you want a nice looking, easy shooting "cowboy" gun you should seriously consider this one for plinking and just fun shooting.
