Re: The first 3-screw that led to my addiction

Nice snag there.
I'm a fan of those OM .45's for sure. With only 3 years of production, and fewer of them than the FT 44's,, they are desirable. Add in that there are only (6) variations, it can make collecting "one of each" a doable challenge.
Downward spiral? Nahh! :D

Re: Super Blackhawk Bisley (Big Bore)

Of the two you mentioned,, I'd opt for the .480 Ruger. I have shot several of the .480's & the .454's,, and find the 480 to be a more pleasant round, and will do all I'd ask of one.

WTS; XR3-RED stags

I have a pair of stags,, NOT factory of course,, as they fit the XR3-RED g/f. They have markings & stamps (ink) on the back,, but have faded to where they are heard to try & decipher.

I'll have to add pictures later,, but I'm asking $300.00 shipped & insured.

Re: Our Rugers

Kudos on a fine bunch of Rugers there. And I can easily echo the above comment about the bunch "growing" to where you need a bigger table! :D :D

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

"Merry (belated) Christmas" to my Ruger collecting family! I'll see if I can get some pictures up of my Christmas cards. And no,, I do not have any as early as the ones Don posted. Ok, here's one I already had in my files. It's of an envelope sticker used on the Christmas cards. https://i.postimg.cc...

Re: Ruger packaging bags

I THINK I recall they switched to the plastic bags when they switched to the yellow & black cardboard boxes following the red flimsey ones. And as with everything Ruger,, there are exceptions. But it'd be very early 80's or even late 1970's for sure. I think as they used up the wax paper they used t...

Re: Going under the knife

We are all glad Ron is back home & doing better.

And Carl,,, you need to heal up as well. It's great news you are doing well enough to go back to work. PS; My son liked the little black weighted item I got from you! You should have seen his smile when he opened that package.
