Glock might have been grandfathered in prior to when the legislation was enacted.

gsellers Got the first one my LGS got in, a month ago, $199



Love it! Little different from the Rough Rider, find it a little harder to load,
the free wheeling Ruger cylinder has to line up with the loading gate. Where
the Rough Rider clicks in place for a quick load, but it does have the dorky

safety...


Waiting on the shop to get more in black or the bronze to go with my silver one.

scattershot I believe the problem is the Zymak(?) grip frame, which is the same stuff “Saturday Night Specials “ were made of back in the day.

teamnelson With a frame and cylinder made of aluminum, it’s considered a Saturday night special in Minnesota, and therefore illegal.

castaway EQ, not being from MN, I don’t have any idea of what you’re talking about. Are there restrictions on single actions?

Empty Quiver The Government has protected us here in MN from the evil that is the Ruger Wrangler.
