Ruger just rolled out a few new wheel guns and it makes me hate them even more. One was a reworked GP-100 chambered in 44 Special. I gotta admit I don’t get all weak in the knees about a five shot 44 Special when I can get the same gun in a six shot 357 Magnum. Perhaps someone will be all giddy about it, but for me it is a pass. What I do get giggly about is an eight shot Redhawk 357 Magnum. Wowser is that a fantastic look and combination. With a 2.75″ barrel it could easily be carried while out and about, but is not really designed for concealment. I’d prefer a longer barrel and I assume eventually they will roll out more options in terms of barrel length.
