    Looking at adds on a few Ruger old model .22lr Bearcat revolvers. What's the difference between a "Bearcat" and a "Super Bearcat"?

    Usually grips are one of the few add-ons for the Bearcat. I think it would be neat if Ruger offered a longer barrel, but the gun is classic how it is. I still have mine, made in 1967. It was my first revolver as a teenager. I tell my boys it was my "childhood gun." It is very special to me. There's a new one out called The Shopkeeper. It is stainless steel with a dove's head shaped grip. It's a real looker.

    I just got a pair of Bearcats over the weekend. Ruger has made a run with adjustable sights on them.

    A little heavier at 24 oz but they are just a sweet gun.

    I have two of the Shopkeeper guns also. I've been thinking about putting adjustable sights on them but got the new ones instead.
