    my first carry piece when I owned a dancehall back in the '80's

    ran across a nice one for not much money, so I had to snag it

    built like a tank

    very well balanced

    smooth action and accurate

    .357 barks like a big dog

    Thanks

    It came with a nice, Alessi IWB holster, a speedloader, and a couple of Bianchi speed strips.

    I'll stash the original grips and replace them with a nicer set of factory Ruger wood.

    Sweet looking revolver. Congrats on the new addition. I had a 4" Police Service Six at one time and that was a great revolver as well. Gotta love Ruger revolvers.

    For less than $300, I wouldn't mind owning one. Preferrably around $200 for a good one.

    I like the early Ruger 357s better than the newer GP100.
