This handy little revolver from Ruger might not stop a charging grizzly, but it would make for the perfect backup gun on a pack trip. It’s super light (it weighs just over 15 ounces), fits nicely in the hand, and shoots well. This model comes in .38 plus, it has a 3-inch barrel, adjustable sights, and features a little bit longer of a grip than other Ruger compact revolvers. MSRP is about $545.
