Got the itch for a revolver....

I have plenty of carry guns, shotguns, etc. One ruger mkII and a rifle but I got the itch for a 22 revolver. I was thinking Ruger single six or Bearcat? I want to do more squirrel plinking with a 22 this year and the rifle is just too easy. Opinions?

I really wanted to get the kids a Bearcat, but a lot of people tell me that they sights are not too accurate, and they are too small for adult with big hands.

I have a Single Six and love it. The only Ruger I still own and will never get rid of.

I concur the Bearcat is cute but it is just to small for my hands, and the sights are not adjustable. The Single Six is a nice gun

For squirrel hunting the single six is way better IMO. The wife has a Bearcat. It is as accurate as any .22. But the lack of adjustable sights makes it tough to hunt small animals like squirrels with.

How about the Smith & Wesson 63-4? Stainless revolver, eight shot. I bought one up here with a 5.5" barrel but they are available with shorter barrels South of the 49 if you want shorter. Nice gun.

As much as I like my Bearcat, it's not really an easy gun to shoot well (that's not the same as saying IT won't shoot well, it will). It has small, fixed sights, a short sight radius, a fairly heavy trigger pull, and small grips that make it somewhat difficult for a person with even average sized hands to consistently get a grip on.

All in all, a Single-Six is a "better" gun.

But I still really like my Bearcat.

I have a stainless 5.5 single six I like but I also like the smith 17/617/18 series... For a beater the SS is tough to beat. Plenty of small game has been taken with all of them so personal choice and wallet will rule!

Yeah, I'm gonna have to get one. Not only is it cool looking, but it's Ruger. I have been shooting my stainless MKII for over 20 years. Had it out on the trails in the woods today, but I am due for something new. I was walking the trails today thinking it's too bad we can't live 300 to 400 years because I will never wear out the MKII.
