Anyone have one of these little guns? Are they worth the money? Interested in hearing anyone's opinion on this gun or the ruger bearcat in general. Thinking of getting one for fishing, plinking round the farm, camping, and maybe a trapline gun

I have both an old model bear cat and a super bear cat late 60's. great light trap line gun. Never have seen an accurate one though. Made the new models are better.

I've had one for a couple of years now. I really like it, but they sure are pricey. Mine is Stainless. I would get it if you have the money. Great on the trapline.

Have a stainless with adjustable sights. I carry it more than any other pistol I have. Lite weight and plenty accurate for what it is. A lite trail gun. If I want to punch small groups in paper I use a target pistol.

Have a stainless bearcat and the one I got is very accurate. Also have single six but the bearcat is my trapping gun. I do think my old age is why I like the bearcat better. Don't even know I'm carrying it. Mine is the new model.

That's good to hear, I thought my friend was a really bad shot.

The new shopkeeper is an amazing beautiful extremely worth the money. I needed one like a hole in the head, but bought it on a whim. It's quickly become one of my all time favorites. If u have the money, buy one and don't look back. You won't regret it. [img:gal:3167259b9ec16717c4]https://trapperman.com/forum/attachments/usergals/2017/09/full-31672-383501-img_0006.jpg[/img
