Default Ruger Revolver

Ruger Single Six, Nine, or Ten? And why?

None of those. Rather, GP, SP, Redhawk. I don't understand the practical (non-competition) appeal of SAO.

It's an acquired taste, nothing to do with practical. I would go go with the 9. 22mag is more fun AND "practical" for small game hunting

Classic design, amazing accuracy, SAO, by definition, teaches/requires firepower discipline.

When your target is the size of a half dollar maybe twenty yards away, it makes sense to cock the hammer, as quietly as possible, and brace yourself as best as you can. For this, double action has no real advantage. Nor does a nine or ten shot revolver. The little single action .22 is tops for small game hunting or plinking.

Single Six,that way when you upgrade to a .45LC you will already be in the groove.I had the single six convertible .22LR/.22Mag and it was great,had the little 4.6" barrel.

None of the replies to my post affects my opinion of SAO. All of the Rugers I suggested shoot BOTH SA and DA. And, they are quite accurate in SA mode. The mere fact that a revolver shoots only SA does not make it more accurate than one which shoots both SA and DA. I know; I have three of them.
Furthermore, SAO isn't any less expensive, either.

SA has fewer parts and are less likely to break or get out of adjustment.
