    My first wheelgun

    Even though I just picked up my new Browning Hi Power last week I sold my car yesterday and couldn't resist, bought my very first revolver, Ruger SP101. Can't wait to shoot it!

    I too have considered selling my car to fund a gun purchase. I figure if I need to walk to work for a little while it would be good for my health. And, well, a new gun is ...... well, it's a NEW GUN!!!!! j/k - lol!

    Looks great. Let us know how it is on the range!

    Very nice. My first gun was a Ruger Security-Six, in fact I still have it. It's one gun I'll probably never part with.

    Thats a great first wheelgun. Ruger revolvers are built like tanks. Enjoy it.

    Congrats, you're really going to like it. Just picked up one for my other half (posted it in super duper snubbie thread), and she digs it very much.

    SP101's are a great way to start your revolver addition. It's a keeper that will outlast you.

    Congrats... Very nice... I got mine about 3 weeks ago... You're gonna love it... After you shoot it, you may want to get the Wolffe spring pack to lighten up the trigger pull...
