    My First Revolver! +100 to Kim at Karps!

    I've been wanting a revolver for quite some time now...and I've finally got my first!

    Thanks Kim for being able to read my mind and cutting me a sweet deal. I love shopping with you guys. I've purchased rifles from Josh and now a pistol from Kim (I've even purchased from the hardware store!). I just need to buy from Alan to get the hat trick!

    Ruger GP 100
    .22lr
    10 shot
    SS
    Rubber grips with wood inlay

    I had to upload stock photos, because the site won't let me attach the pics I took with my cell? I get this message - Image upload failed because the extension of this file did not match the content.

    This pistol feels so comfortable in the hand. Very little recoil, if any. My only issue was when I took it to the range. Fired 60 rounds. I didn't have 1 set where all 10 went bang. There were 1 or 2 rounds that would not go off. I don't know if it was the same cylinder each time. Used Remington for 50 and then 10 rounds of CC I high velocity mini mags.

    Any of you wheel gun guys have any idea what's going on? I've heard the word "timing" used with revolvers. Is there a break in period?

    Thanks in advance for the help, and thanks again to LI Ammo.

    .22 can be finicky, Remington is blah. Let it run a few hundred more rounds. Kim is a good woman...

      There are two types of people in this world. People that think the Goverment is looking out for their best interest and people that just think !

        Sometimes rimfire just chokes. Don't sweat it. It's not the gun. You'll find that some ammo is more consistent than others, but they all eventually choke. Enjoy it and be safe.

          nice gun , and when you buy one in centerfire it will be exactly the same... just focus on sights and trigger pull for now .
          buy federals or winchester 22 lr and you should be fine

            If it's misfiring already, just dump it. It'll be nothing but trouble for you.
            As an official nice guy, I'll take it off your hands though. Wouldn't want you to feel stuck.

                  Every Beretta sold is one Alan can't keep and every revolver sold is one Kim can't keep. That's why my collection is hidden much better. Enjoy!

                    Looks awesome, congrats and enjoy. Don't worry too much, probably just the ammo. Keep shooting and give a report back.
