    Fun?

    Oh yeah, you don't think of handguns as entertainment.

    Then they are for fighting off those viscious empty cans that keep surrounding you when you are out in a field, or for getting that plump, juicey possum to put out for your Christmas dinner.

    Wikipedia:

    Recreation or fun is the use of time in a manner designed for therapeutic refreshment of one's body or mind. While leisure is more likely a form of entertainment or rest, recreation is active for the participant but in a refreshing and diverting manner. As people in the world's wealthier regions lead increasingly sedentary life styles, the need for recreation has increased. The rise of so called active vacations exemplifies this.

    General description

    Recreation, play, and fun are not the preserve of humans. Play is essential for the development of skills, the most basic of which are motor skills in young creatures.[1]
    The choice of hours for recreation is, for employees, restricted by the requirements of, and agreements with, the employer (working time), and for students by school hours. For people with their own business it is also restricted by the requirements of the work, such as the opening hours of the business based on wishes of customers, laws, and customs.
    The weekend is usually a time for recreation, perhaps because in Judeo-Christian and Muslim cultures the weekend Sabbath is "the day of rest". Holidays are also a common time for recreation, though recreation may take place at virtually any time. Recreation commonly occurs during an individual's discretionary, or free, time.
    Traditionally Olympics, music and dance serve as recreation in many cultures, as do sports, hobbies, games and tourism. On the other hand, watching TV, playing video games, and listening to music are common forms of leisure.[2]

    Legal restrictions

    Some recreational activities are made illegal in many jurisdictions because of the perceived immorality of certain forms of "fun". These include gambling, using drugs, some forms of sex, viewing or producing erotica/pornography, and some forms of dancing (such as belly dance), or even all dancing (see Footloose, Taliban). Often one form of an activity is viewed as immoral by a culture while other forms are viewed as acceptable. For example, certain forms of sexual activities have been outlawed in certain regions, such as prohibitions against sodomy in parts of the United States (though the Supreme Court recently ruled such laws unconstitutional in the Lawrence v. Texas case), while other forms of sex are acceptable. Another example is recreational drug use. In most of the world, responsible alcohol consumption, a form of recreational drug use is legal and acceptable by most people's moral standards. This is probably because alcohol has traditionally been in wide use.[3] Nearly all drugs that traditionally have not been widely used in European culture have been deemed illegal in most of the world. It is disputed whether these prohibitions affect the usage rates for most drugs. However, in much of the Western world, decriminalization of so-called soft drugs is increasingly accepted.
    Hope this refreshes your memory!

    Play Safe!

    I must not be having enough fun in my life because I couldn't figure out what use it would have either.

    I don't know where you are at in your life cycle WM but i am at the point where "Want" = "Get". If I want very long my heirs will do the getting and thats not the way it's going to happen. They get used toys.

    Now go get it.

    And MERRY CHRISTMAS

    Hey WM, do you suppose you would get the same response if you wanted an Ipod or Xbox?

    Gotta love how so many ppl are dismissing this new model as having no use. I suppose that make any other single shot pistol just as useless too. Wonder if all those single shot bolt action pistols are useless? T/C's too?

    Guess everyone is all puckered about a gun needing an actual definative purpose. I have every niche I'll ever require by a firearm filled and then some yet i still continue to buy more, this one will be included in purchases for '08, maybe even more than one. ggodness though what purpose could two possibly have if one is useless? If it's gotta have a need why not just own one rifle for all hunting needs - a .30-06, one shotgun (12 gauge) and maybe a handgun in some do-all chambering such as .357 mag or 45 Colt. everyone wold only need 3 maybe 4 guns to fulfill all neccessary purposes.
    I think ppl just are interested themselves but have a need to chime in with something negative becasue it's simply not what they want to see being made.

    I think it looks fun. I'd take one. Who cares if it has a practical purpose or not? Hell, my AR doesn't have a practical purpose for me, but I still love it.

    "Fun" is a perfectly good answer to "what's it for?" Old Padawan likes to chidingly remind me that people do own guns for fun, and that I should try out the concept.

    I have many times been accused of being a minimalist, but I confess that I own a purposeless M1 Garand. It's just a great big plinker. But all my other guns serve a somewhat practical purpose, and guns that serve multiple purposes please me even more. The two purposeless guns I have aside from the Garand will be on the auction block when I get home.

    I love T/C's and had more wrapped up in Contenders and Encores than I'll ever have in Rugers and was impressed by their accuracy. Their barrel and caliber switching capability was the one feature that sold me on them, unlike a sawed off 10/22. I for one am not interested in the Charger due to my state not allowing semiautomatic rifles or handguns for hunting. I actually have found no circumstances where I needed a semiautomatic rifle or handgun for hunting so this would account for my disinterest in the Charger. Not a desire to chime in with negative feedback simply because it's not what I want to see be made. There are several Ruger's which I don't own because they serve no purpose for me and the 10/22 is one of them. I really can't figure out what a shorter one would do for me either.

    Hey now, I have three Glocks! Well, two since the wife absconded with the 26...

    And they are all generally filthy (but reliable), since I despise cleaning guns!
