Here's a Ruger with 5.

That picture is both a testament to the strength of Rugers and the stupidity of some people.

No ... is not going to shoot or be fidgeted with as easily as a 1911.

Here's a Ruger with 5.

Mount that front sight blade back before the cutaway and make a snub nose outta it.

There musta been some pretty good blast coming out around the cylinder. Good thing it was a revolver.

theres no way that's a .357

*edit* looks like a single 6. Even tank-like rugers will banana peel the barrel if you do that with calibers more powerful than 22 mag.

It was said to be a 357 on the Ruger Forums. The barrel was not cut to the center of the barrel but stops short, as you can still see the front sight was left mostly intact. Do they make jacketed 22's? Not washed but actual jacketed? Also they look to be wadcutters.

Not trying to call you a liar, its just that it would be an insanely bull barrel (over an inch in diameter). As far as the wadcutter.. well theyre sqished in there pretty ood, plus a jacketed wadcutter?As far as jacketed 22's im not sure. Were they ALL squibs? If that's the case (and they're not 22's), then the guy doing the reloading has to lay off the crack pipe while reloading, or the manufacturer needs to really check their qc.

My opinion on what happened. Single-6 .22, first shot was fine, the second was a squib, and the following 4 didn't alert the guy that he was having problems somehow.

I can't imagine having 5 centerfire squibs in a row, and i know of no centerfire gun that can take 4 full power rounds behind the squib and not so much as bulge the barrel.

Speculation was that they were underpowered .38 Specials.

Like I said before the barrel wasn't cut in half. When you cut it short you get the appearance that the barrel is thicker then it actual is. You're not seeing whole dia. of the bore.
