    Some of you had asked me to update you on what was wrong with my brand new SRH 9 1/2" model. I received it back from Ruger today (yay!) with the following notation:

    Internal components as needed: Repaired
    Crane: Repaired
    Cylinder Release Button: Repaired
    Hammer Dog: Replaced
    Trigger: Replaced

    Now, given that I'm about as mechanical as my cat :neener: I have no clue what a "hammer dog" is, but it and the trigger were obviously screwed up. It is now clean, all polished up, and ready to shoot.

    Oddly enough I was just grumbling about Ruger today while sitting in my blind in the forest. I'm set up (for tomorrow too) just off a path where numerous deer travel, and where there's a big buck that I'm wanting to get who's left a couple of scrapes and whose smell, um, is obvious in the area. And I was sitting in my blind today thinking "I can't get my rifle up quickly enough; I need my SRH". And lo and behold....here it is.

    I'll have to give it some thought as to whether I really take it tomorrow; taking it hunting without range time to prep is an iffy thing. OTOH, it makes a lot more sense to shoot from as little as 10 feet with a revolver than with a rifle.

    At any rate, it's back, it was indeed a "lemon", I guess, given all the work it needed, and I can't wait to get out there and blast away with it!!!!!

    Thanks for all of you who have been interested in how things went and wanted to know what happened.

    to fetch a roast and backstrap
    Hammerdog fell down, and launched his pill
    and springmom yelled "Oh crap!"

    Considering the problems you've had with the gun already, I would highly recommend some range time before taking it hunting.

    I could just imagine the deer of your life walking by and your SRH mis-functioning wouldn't that make you kick yourself?

    Well it ended up being moot because when I got up this morning my asthma was too bad to go. DH is up there for the morning hunt, and I'm here (awake but not hunting) :(

    Off to the doctor later, most likely. Sigh

    That list would seem to represent a lot of problems in a new gun, and it makes me wonder if they have any kind of an inspection department... :uhoh:

    Anyway, I hope it works now and you get well soon.

    Yeah, it was a lot to have wrong. They apologized by sending me a jacket patch and a bumper sticker :eek:

    Ah well, I'll go shoot it tomorrow and hopefully it will be everything I'v been led to expect :)

    That was quite some list of work done - hope when you get to wring it out all will be well for you.

    It does make one wonder if Ruger QC is as it should be. Must have been assembled originally late one Friday afternoon ;)

    I was intending to get out there today, but DH got up this morning and said, "I can't sleep on this bed anymore" (it is pretty old) so off we went shopping. And are here waiting for a new Tempur-Pedic to be delivered sometime between 4-7.

    Tomorrow we have to pick up his trophy pig head. Ick. :barf: But it DID have impressive tusks, so I can live with it. I think....:neener:

    HOPEFULLY, tomorrow afternoon, after the pig and before sundown, we'll get over to put it through its paces!
