Today we'll take an in-depth look at the awesomely-affordable Ruger Wrangler. We'll show you an overview of the key features as well as looking at some pro's and con's, then we'll head out to the range to see how it shoots; from close-up cowboy action steel, out to 100 yards from the bench. We will also show you some chronograph tests. Have fun Wranglin'!

Owning my new Ruger GP100. First look, first shots!
Note: throughout the picture I call the revolver an 'SP100'... there is no such thing. As I was speaking in the picture, I got the name of another choice of revolver, the Ruger SP101, all mixed in with the GP100 I demonstrated and my speech came out all wrong. To clarify: this revolver is Sturm Ruger & Co.'s GP100 Model 1715 .357 Magnum... and it is awesome!
Bolt action 22 LR; it takes the BX series 10/22 magazines, has a bolt handle large enough for an adult's hand, and it's stainless steel with a threaded barrel. What more could you want in a bolt 22 LR? It's the perfect companion for a stainless steel Ruger 10/22 Takedown. Finally, it's been years since I have shot a bolt action 22 LR, and the BX - 25 puts the fun back in bolt 22s. If you live somewhere that bans high capacity magazines, you need to move.
