New handgun

I have wanted a handgun for a long time. I just graduated college and got a good job close to home. With my first paycheck I decided to give myself a gift. I purchased a ruger 357. Did a little research on them but I was wondering if there is any advise on them. I also want to know if I payed too much. I bought it used for $350. Thanks!

Re: New handgun

I have had good luck with Rugers. Can't go wrong with a nice revolver. Good luck with it and enjoy.

Re: New handgun

They make alot of different Ruger 357 Magnum's. But I never met a Ruger I didn't like. And by the way. WHERE ARE THE PICTURES YOUNG MAN!!!!! Don't you know the rules. A new gun---we must see pictures. Tom.

Re: New handgun

I have an old Ruger Security Six, and I really like it.....

Re: New handgun

I'm gonna hazaed a guess and say GP100? They are the most common that I see. I love mine. $350 for a used one ain't bad.

Re: New handgun

Owned a 44 Ruger Super Red & was impressed with its quality.

Best of luck with your new handgun!
