There is something to be said about that platform. I haven't notice an increase though.

You could give ME a revolver. I prefer a revolver over a semi-auto. I mean, I have a lot of fun with my Mark II but I definitely prefer the look and the platform of a revolver.

Its still a popular design. But im not a fan of revolvers. Ive got one but thats a colt python and those things transcend what revolvers and handguns are.

yes your gp100 is a very amazing gun for a ruger. you got a 1 in a million there. ive never seen a ruger as smooth as yours. ive gone to a few gunshows since i shot yours and havent come across a ruger gp100 anywere as smooth an action yours has.

if you ever sell that or give it away i will have to send the mental hygene crew to evalute your sanity

and this is from a person who doesnt like revolvers. if i find a gp100 like yours i would have to put it in my safe next to the python.

I would say that sounds about right, I have noticed revolver sales up these last couple of months but not quite enough to call it a trend. More of a fluke really.

I really perfer revolvers (I have autos and revolvers)......if you reload and save your brass you don't have to go round it up with a revolver.
