there is an exact match for what you are looking for-and it is the Ruger GP100.I seen one new a few weeks back for $480,they have down to a 4" barrel,and double action.It meets all your needs and wants.

You may want to give Jay's Sporting goods a call. They are located in Clare and Gaylord, Mi. They consistantly have the best prices on firearms. They are typically about a 100 to 200 dollars lower than most places.

For what you want and your budget, a Ruger GP100 is going to be hard to beat. They are built like a tank and your kids won't be able to wear it out after you're gone. I've personally seen a Ruger survive colossal stupidity in the form of massive overloaded reloads with only a bulged barrel & cylinder. That's a testament to the Ruger's strength. The only suggestion I would make is to put a Wolff spring kit in it to make the double action trigger pull lighter/smoother.

Yup a good place for guns and hunting supplies. 3 and a half hour drive for me one way but, typically worth the drive.

Heh, my BSA troop always stopped at Jay's for last-minute stuff whenever we passed through on the way to a camp. Didn't realize it was so famous.

I agree with the Ruger SP 101 or the GP 100. Have 2-3 speed loaders nearby & you're good to go.

I have a GP 100 as my bedside gun & a Glock 17 as a back up, the wifey has a Glock 19 at her bedside.
