I just had my wife pick me up a pistol cleaning kit because all I had was parts and peices of different rifle cleaning kits.The gun cleans up nice,and very easy to clean when the cylinder comes right out(this is my first SA).I notice that Ruger don't use too many small parts,everthing is thick steel down to the fat firing pin.It is heavy,but if my fat butt can't hold up a 32oz revolver then I should go to the gym.I just like this gun,I am not into cowboy looking guns,but I like this one,don't know why,I just love how it takes longer to load and shoot which saves ammo and gives me more tinker time to load it up and empty the cases.I just like it.

Yeah, my Dad gave me one as a kid, and it's still going strong.

Same here. I've shot 10's of thousands of rounds through it, (bout half mag half LR) drug it through the desert, mountains and forests over the last 16 years. I thought it would be due for an internal cleaning, so I broke it down and it only looked mildly fouled/dirty. Had I known that I wouldn't have gone through the pain of complete disassembly (actually its the reassembly that was painful).

Make sure you get the sights dialed in perfectly and then never touch them again. My Dad sighted mine in when he got it, I've never adjusted them and it's one of my most accurate handguns, especially w/ mag loads.

Do your eyeball (and hands) a favor and order some redwood grips from Ruger's website. They are a bit wider than those black plastic ones and give it a bit more character.

That's a great purchase, Ninjatoth, congratulations. It's worlds apart from a Taurus .22.
