Background

12 June 2010 heard lion on my property.  22 June 2010 a neighbor saw the lion, about the size of a German Shepherd across the street from my house.
Farrah Fawcett got her job doing the Cougar commercial because the prior model was laying on the ground and was mauled by the Cougar.  At HP (Agilent) in Santa Rosa they said if you were walking on the ring trail and saw a lion the thing to do is raise your arms (and bring along a shirt or coat to fill in the space between) to make yourself look taller.  The idea is that when you're below a big cat you're fair game.

This is the Sturm, Ruger & Co. SP101 (Wiki) frame in 0.357 Magnum caliber.  It has a built-in laser sight activated by the button just below the trigger guard.

The revolver cylinder is 1.57" long

Laser Sight

The revolver came with the Crimson Trace LG-303 Laser Grips.
The LG-303 has a place for your pinky finger, but the LG-111 does not.
The small hole shown in Fig 2 is the windage adjustment and on top there's an elevation adjustment.  The bag of materials from Crimson Trace includes a number of Allan wrenches.  You can see the front of the 5 mw laser in Fig 3 front view above.
