Well Ill start by saying I know rugers are among the toughest guns made but I did something today that I have never done in the six years of owning fire arms, I dropped one. It was my Ruger SP101. I opened the cylinder to load it and it fell flat but open cylinder side down. I tried the goofy foot catch and ony slowed it down it hit the carpet and caused the cylinder to slam closed. It cycles fine, no dents or dings as it landed on carpet, and the gab between the cylinder/breech and cylinder/firing pin wall (forgot the correct term sorry) appear the same. The gun appears fine is there anything else I should check for damage? Oh and the cylinder opens and closes fine! Each Ruger I own is like a kid to me I love them and prided myself on the care I give them. Any other places to check would be great so please let me know. (I guess I need to hear its ok, LOL!) Thanks all.
