With its adjustable rear sight it can be sighted in for a wide range of ammunition loads. This model of Ruger was issued by many police departments and security guard companies. It could serve well as a handgun for home defense, or vehicle defense where legal. It would also make a great handgun to carry in the field or to use for marksmanship instruction.
