I am Now a "Two Gun Ruger owner" as I took Possession of a Used .32 H&R Magnum Ruger Single six complete with a Belt Mount Holster.
This Used up all the 'Discretionary funds' in the Month so I will not be able to try it out until possibly next Month.
This "Possession took place September 20th due to the Shop being closed between the 16th and the 20th due to multiple sick shop personnel
Just in time for my Birthday Anniversary on Sept. 21st, my 74th.
Also, my "R.A.T.S. Reserve" Badge Arrived and it looks GREAT! I am Planning to Purchase a Badge Wallet to carry it in, hopefully one that I can hang off my belt or a Pocket to display the Badge when appropriate.
So Far A Good Birthday for me.

The Badge Wallet to fit S&W Style #262L is now on Order from "Cops Plus" (www.copsplus.com
) and expected in about four weeks.
I have also requested my gunsmith to try experiments with Ruger Single Six used Cylinders: a Blued 6-shot .22LR to be re-cut for .32Auto (~.337" body diameter) and a Stainless steel 6-shot .22-Mag to be Re-cut for .32 LC (the .318" body diameter ones).
If these come out well, then I will consider having the .32 H&R revolver reworked to work with the Modified .22 Cylinders (requires setting the barrel back to lengthen the forcing cone end and trimming the front of the .32H*R cylinder to work with the New forcing cone position).
My Hopes for the future on this .32 include eventual cylinders for some other CF versions of old RF cartridges of .318" body diameter such as the .32 Extra Short, .32 short, .32 Extra Long, etc.
That Stubby little .2 Extra Short might make a nice short range 'plinking' and target round.
