i've got the box & the original manual from my Ruger Standard, made in 1955. funny thing is all that stuff is in better cosmetic condition than the gun itself
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch

Anyway, was just curious if anyone else was like me in this regard. I always figured it would be nice, should I get to a point of trying to sell any of my firearms, to be able to say it includes original paperwork or owner's manual. Plus I like having all the specific factory stats of my guns to compare to my caliper measurements.

For reference, in the case anyone is of like mind, here's the website I found.
I try to keep all of the paperwork for all of my guns. If I buy one that is out of production, I look for the manuals for it. Thanks for the link, I just added a amnual for my Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer. The site is now bookmarked on my desktop.
