Was gonna save this one for next week, but just can't resist.
My favorite part of this thread is the first picture on the first page  Grin  .  Not to offend the Marshall (it's rather a compliment) but I ain't believin any stories about 6 year old grankids or 30 sumthin sons.   Tongue

Oh, an did I mention, them shirts look mighty nice--wouldn't mind havin one for myself...

I stated out with an Old Army many years ago. It was fun taking it muzzleloading for whitetails. Than I bought a auto 22 for rabbit hunting.I have shot thousands of rounds threw that gun without problems. Well Cowboy Action came to me in 1998 and Ruger was a natural choice for me and my son. We shot Cowboy Action for some time before my wife Elsie Rose wanted to give the shooting a try. She dressed the part and helped with scoreing an such before. We were at a local shoot and a fellow Cowboy asked her if she had shoot the New Ruger Single Six 32's yet. Well she said no and he put a set in her holsters and ammo and stated go have fun. After the match we hunted him down and he was laughing at me. His statement was I guess I'll have to order you a set hay?? Two weeks later we had a set of 32's and shes had a smile ever since. We know have about eight rugers and are looking for a couple of more sets in the future. Great guns for a fair price.   NBC

Great story Chuck.  My wife's been lookin around awhile for just the right gun.  I mentioned .32's to her in the past but she's been more interested in .38's lately after accidentaly shootin .357's through mine and realizin she could handle it.  She's a small gal, and I still think a .32 would give her the bang she likes but with better accuracy (less kick).  Any further opinion on these pistols, that you obviously love, would be great.

Leo  You need to get her to a shoot and ask some pard to let her shoot a set. Elsie my BETTER half has Aurthor real bad and these were perect for her. Elsie has the birdsheads. I'm loading her a mild load with 110 bullets. Recoil isn't a problem and at our distances there very accurate. Shes even let me shoot them let me see if I can remember OH yes maybe a couple times. And by the prices I see the used ones selling for you won't loose any money in the future. I did buy her a set if gunfighter grips so they are quit thin and a very easy grip to hang on to. I would certainly recomend them for a lady with small hands.

Thanks Chuck, she loves the birdshead frames.  I'll get her hands on one for a trial run, but the gut tells me we have a winner here.  She has some health issues as well (enough to keep her away from the .30-30) so for the long term, it seems like the perfect caliber.

I have kinda small hands, and I like the Birdhead grip, too.  When I bought my last Vaquero, it was still back when they were all the bigger versions.  Mine was a special run from the factory (of 5000 if I recall) that was a kind of test version with a 3 3/4" (3.75") short barrel that had the standard grip - they called it a Sheriff's Model.  The gun is polished Stainless, 45 Colt and the white factory grip had no Ruger Medallion, rather the Ruger symbol was "scrimshawed" (laser etched) on it and pretty large.  VERY handsome.  At this time, there were NO Birdhead Vaqueros released - perhaps rumored, but not yet released.  Anyhoo, I found a company called Qualite' that had a DIY (do-it-yerself) brass B-head grip conversion, made of brass.  I chose brass over the stainless they offered and with a set of white Hogue grips.  Lemme tell you - that gun - when polished up and gleaming, is REAL purdy! (IMHO, of course.  Wink )  This grip has a slightly different contour than what Ruger eventually released, about 1-2 years later.

Here it is with an 1890s Iver Johnson topbreak in 38 S&W.  (Yes, the one piece grip on the Iver J IS a factory "target" grip and is VERY comfortable to hold and shoot! And no - it has snap caps in it, not loaded rounds.  Cheesy )

Steel Horse those are some nice looking shooters. The birdsheads are definitly a if it feels good thing. You see alot of folks wanting slimer or birdsheads grips. For me I like the standard size. For the wife birdsheads are the pick. I guess its something we figure out as we go down the trail. What fun Hay!!!

I'm proud of ya!  Savin' rain forests and American woodlands and swamps and critters are (is) important.  But NOT at the expense of common sense!  The PETA folks need to learn how the food chain really works ... as God intended.  (NOT that I   have an exclusive line on what the Big Guy means, don't ya know.  Wink )  They seem to forget that people are actually part of nature and that we're omnivores, NOT strictly herbivores, like some of God's critters!

     I just got home from a long day on a job site an guess what was waitin for me on the door step? Cool
     The quality of this shirt is incredible, but what else could we expect from anything with the Ruger monicker on it!  As stated by one of the other lucky winners it is dang near a jacket.  The recoil pad on the right shoulder is a very nice touch.  Thanks for the rush mail service, it really made my day.

Okay,

I'll bite. My son would love a shirt. He is currently shooting a red pad M77 in .243 and took his first deer this last October. "I DROPPED him!" is still echoing through the mountains.

I have an OA stainless & NRV 5.5" blue that I love.

Decided I was going to get into the SASS/CAS arena a while back...Those that know me, will tell you, that if I'm gonna do it, I'll go all the way without hesitation...

Now mind you, I have a gun safe with multiple "other" Ruger items.

Went to a gun show here in East Texas..Started looking at the pistolas. I bet I passed up a dozen Rugers cause I was lookin for that click,click,click,click that pertains to other shootin irons.

Anyway, walked up and laid my hands on a case hardened, blue/black AWA. It was everything that a cowboy gun should be...

I played with. I loved on it, gave it all kinds of special attention....

Now remember I'm no stranger to Rugers....I took the AWA out to shoot and within minutes of firing shots out of it, I knew instantly that I had picked up the wrong gun...kinda like pickin the wrong woman...but that's another story.. Wink

The gun show came back to town...I took the AWA to the show...made an outright sale of the AWA and turned the cash into a brand new RNV 5.5 SS....it was love at first shot....

Well now that there are two pistols required for SASS/CAS I was left with a dilema..I had to find me another one...I did just that

now I'm sporting (in place of courting) twin sisters..and boy are they sweet..

Now there is one part of this story, that I haven't told...The AWA was bought for me, by my wife as birthday present.

When I made the call to buy the Ruger..I called her from the Gun show...and told her that I just couldn't see me not shooting the Ruger....she understood, and she understands me... Wink

so Marshall'ette..if'n there's a shirt somewhere there available, I'll be asking you to send one not to me, but to my loving and most graciously understanding wife...she deserves it. Smiley

and thanks for the opportunity... Cool
