Hello Everyone!

I have put about 50 bricks through my 10/22 without one jam and about 50 boxes of shells through my Red Label. I have experienced Rugers quality first hand. I think it is time for me to get a revolver! No doubt it has to be a Ruger...question is what model and caliber. I understand that it depends on what I will use it for, so here is a little about me.

-I applied for the 2012 Minnesota wolf hunting lottery, I will not be hunting for them with the revolver but would like to have a backup.
-Take it deer hunting (about 30 miles south of Canadian border) in the heart of black bear country
-While I am in the woods doing Manly things.
-Not looking for a big huge gun, Like the shorter barrel length
-Possibly conceal and carry in bigger cities
-Budget around $650 but if I can go cheaper then awesome
-I am often in swamps and marshes, I need this gun to be durable to water and just a general beating.


Thanks!

-Steve

Over the years I've used one of three short barrel pistols while in bear country. A Blackhawk 45 Colt, Blackhawk 41 mag or my Charter Arms Bull Dog 44 special.

Welcome to the Forum from Georgia!

Sounds like where you're going hunting at you may even run into Big Foot :eek:

I'd say no less then a .357 Magnum...

Glad you could join us, ENJOY!
