    I don't like the way the action works in their single action revolvers. Having said that I
    wouldn't mind having another single six but I wont have another Ruger SA

    I reckon you'd say I was a Ruger enthusiast. Bought this .357 Magnum Three Screw Flat Top back
    in 1958: my Super Blackhawks I've garnered over the years: Three Screw models: .44 Special

    Actually yes. There were sub-compact sized ones (like 4" long) and others ranging up towards
    the 10" one C3 mentioned. I'm sure there were longer than 10" slide rules, but I have no pics
    to prove it, ...

    I remember Civil War era cannon, those shaped like an emphoria, in a park in Memphis. We went
    there one day and they were gone. My Dad said they "went to the War effort."I had visions of
    those old gun...

    If you never played with a vac-u-form, you're not old enough.I never played with a Vac-U-From.
    Didn't have them in my day. Did have a Daisy Red Ryder, though. And yeah, my Mother said,

    I have seen peep sights advertised for Ruger Blackhawks, but never really considered one. I
    have upgraded a couple of my Rugers with Millett and Gary Reeder rear sights. But I retained
    the Patridge st...

    This touches on a peeve of mine regarding 'Cartridges of the World.' From the dawn of
    cartridges through about 1980 pistol and ammunition makers were fond of sticking their own name
    on already existin...

    And those grips appear to be Catalin, a phenolic resin similar to Bakelite. This was an early
    "plastic" developed for, I believe, dental use.The grips John Wayne favored on his six shooters
    were Catal...

    That is a Colt New Service. The early Colt .38-40 heeled bullet and bore dimensions were the
    same as the .41 Long Colt. The .38-40 heeled was actually a .40-40 caliber. Colt later reduced
    the .38-40 t...

    tinbucket:I'm not into that SASS type of shooting, but am a handgunner so do shoot some. First
