A new GP100 followed me home today.
Sorry for the crappy image, but in reality, it is a hammer. It is not meant to be pretty, nor is it meant to act as a finely crafted custom built piece of machinery.
It is a tool to go in the Jeep for general purpose use. If it gets scratched or otherwise defaced.....oh well, it is a tool. In that respect it is much like a Jeep.
Some may wonder why a revolver from Ruger in 357? I believe that Ruger makes a fine firearm....not a work of art, but rather much more industrial in design and execution than a Smith. But, they go bang every time you pull the trigger. And as a tool, that is very important.
In my younger days, I used to discount the 357 as a useful tool. A few years ago I purchased a 6" version of the GP100 and really learned to like both the caliber and the gun. For me at this point in my life, it might just be the perfect fit for the intended task.
Should have a couple of hundred rounds through it after the weekend......more to follow.
