I tend towards the sorta unique so I'd go for the .327 Single Seven since these things are admittedly sorta toys for me, ha, ha. That and I guess I must have a small, well, never mind. And since they were mentioned, if you go for a Bearcat I'd suggest the 3.5 shopkeeper with the bird's head grip and a tube of Bengay for when shooting the little thing makes your hand cramp up. The 3.5 barrel makes it easier to remove spent casings and will therefore save you a little on the bengay.

The Lipsey's 5" blued GP100 IMO will define the 327 Federal Magnum.

I'm sorry but having to choose between a Single Action Ruger and Double action Ruger is pretty simple. Avoid Ruger's Single Action revolvers like the plague !

Avoid like the plague, because they are addictive. I always shoot double actions single, anyhow.

So far, the little Bearcat has found a place in my heart and the pocket of my hunting jacket. I regret that some fellas may be selling things off as they’ve been without pay for political ends, but I am helping out as I can on what I hope are good deals... it will pass and I hope to have stuff to eventually trade towards a single seven.

WHY would I want to avoid them ? Ruger single actions are good firearms, strong, affordable and trustworthy. I have had Ruger double actions, S&W and Colt along with a few other brands of double actions and I like the Ruger single action firearms the best. Please explain. Yes, you hit a nerve. And yes I have a Single Seven.
