The Ruger's are great guns. I have a Single Six that I loved to shoot until I bought a Single Ten. Everything about that gun is great.
I will say this though...My cousin has a Heritage and it's quality and overall look does not compare to the Ruger but it is a nail driver. I thought it was just that he had shot it a lot and was good with it until I shot. I've tried to buy it from him ever since. It is a great shooting gun and would be perfect for riding in the truck.
