    I was happy to see them making the Bearcat again.
    Small inexpensive 22 made just the right size to put in the hands of a 12-year-old and teach them how to shoot.
    Every one of us kids learned to shoot with one.
    Then I looked and the "New Bearcat" is........$640:eek:

    Maybe with the Wrangler they have realized that a simple 22 revolver just doesn't command a $600+ price:rolleyes:.

    Eventually everything reaches a price point that consumers just aren't willing to pay...

    I know I'm glad that I got my firearm bucket list filled decades ago...

    And the ones I don't have by now...I DON'T really need.

    It is.
    I think Ruger looked at the collector price of original Bearcats when pricing the "New Bearcat".
    It's like when Inland reconstituted itself and started making M1 carbines again.
    Original G.I. Inland carbines sell for about $1100. So the new Inland carbine is at that price point.
    Of course AO never stopped making carbines and you have always been able to buy an excellent new one made with 21st century manufacturing technology for a little over $750.

    That Wrangler is cheap...

    My above generalization on price points and consumers wasn't about the Wrangler.

    Or even the New Bearcat...

    It was just an observation on firearm prices in general.



    I've been on a .22 SA Revolver / Pistol / Rifle kick as of late...and I'm currently looking at the Walther Colt 1911a1 Rail Gun.
