    I have been unimpressed by the Ruger American line of firearms. Seem very cheap in feel and function when I have held some at LGS.

    20150817_172951.jpg Ruger makes better revolvers than semis, although I own an LCP and LC9. My SP1o1 is better than either of those two.

    Maintain your OpSec! Try not to post you're weapon with your serial #. No need for all of us to see that. :)

    I wouldn't make too much of the serial number.....GunBroker has tons listed, but Yes cant be too careful.....Hard to do a photo opp when he's a lefty.

    REO you could add a Ruger Blackhawk Old Model Flat Top revolver to that list in 357 or 44 and not be disappointed.

    I have the MKII in stainless, keep it on the boat for entertainment.
    Ever try to hit a styrofoam coffee cup, in the ocean, while shooting from a rocking/rolling boat ???

    I have witnessed styrofoam disintegrate on the beaches in Baja in a very short amount of time -
