Time to show the Double Action crowd those nifty Rugers you've got stashed away.... :D

Here's my late production Flattop in .357. Made in 1962 and shot exactly 5 times by the original owner. Last time he had it out of the safe more then 30 years ago....Except for those five shots, she is as new as you'll ever find ;)

That's a beauty, Giz. I don't have a SA Ruger, presently, but would like to get a RUGER Single Six shooter. I believe that a SA Ruger is the best revolver that Ruger makes. Don't really shoot much .38/.357 anymore, but I need another "fun gun" in .22 LR. ;) Bob

Another great old Ruger, Giz.

I have my first SA centerfire revolver on order as I type this. I had an old Herters SA .22 at one time. Fun little gun but the inside walls of barns were safe when shooting with that old worn out thing. My Blackhawk that is on it's way is in 41 Mag. I really can't wait to start handloading for that thing. I have a quirky idea in my head that it would be nice if that Ruger never saw factory ammunition. Especially what they are getting these days for factory rounds in that caliber.

Lets see some more great Rugers. The pics will hold me over until I can pick up my new obsession.

I have a few shooters.

First is a type 1 flattop 357, she had a rough life before I got her.



Next is a 44 flattop, looks like new. Its a real handful, and finger whacker, with full power 44 magnum loads. I have a light(er) load with some 225 cast bullets that work fine and is accurate. I'll take a deer or two with it this coming year.



A 45 Colt Blackhawk given to me by a good friend.



Here's the whole 3-screw gang, the 357 flattop, a 44 mag Super BlackHawk, a 45 Colt Blackhawk and the 44 flattop (in no particular order).

I purchased one of those and sent it to David Clements and had a potload of work done on it. It is THE most accurate gun I own.

Here's an S47 with a 6-1/2" barrel.
It shipped in 1966.
Found it new-in-box, unturned, with its shipper and all the 'stuff'.
Probably the finest polish and bluing of any make I own.
