I was just looking at the Ruger Wrangler at my LGS on Wednesday. Thinking about picking one up for a snake gun like that too Barry. They had about every finish and variation in stock for $219, I think.

Guess Great Minds think alike ! 🤠
Governor for the win on sneaky snakes. Wrangler for the win anyway. They're a nice little gun. For half or even a third the price of a Single Six, what not? Wish they made the WMR cylinder to go with it. I think I paid $209 at the Farm Store back in January or so. I'd say $219 in today's market is right in there.


EE,
The S&W Governor is definitely the ultimate “snake gun” and also works well on hogs and other varmints. I had one and shot it quite a bit when they first came out.
But for now, I have a lot of .22 cal rat shot on hand, and the Ruger Wrangler should work well for snakes and rats in the barn.
I hope you went ahead and got the Wrangler. They are neat guns.


MAGAA!

Mine shoots everything I have tried quite accurately, and I have no complaints. I got mine early, for about $185.00 out the door.

If you filed the front sight down wouldn't it shoot even higher?

If you know how many guns you own... you don't own enough.

If you filed the front sight it will make your point of impact higher. Think about it.

I have the green one...and I ran a cross used black one the other day. I dont know what the previous owner did with it, but pretty good finish wear, dings in the metal all over the place, etc. For 135, joker is going in the truck toolbox, still tight as heck and shot well. I've bought a couple nice j frame smiths lately, but problem is, I bought them too nice. Fine for range use, but not going to be rough with them like the wrangler.
