Today we’ll take an in-depth look at the awesomely-affordable Ruger Wrangler. We’ll show you an overview of the key features as well as looking at some pro’s and con’s, then we’ll head out to the range to see how it shoots; from close-up cowboy action steel, out to 100 yards from the bench. We will also show you some chronograph tests. Have fun Wranglin’!

Diminutive sights and less-than-stellar accuracy
