Are you a Ruger shooter? Do you think that Rugers Are the Toughest Sixguns? Do you want to be one of the noble RATS?

Then put your request here, and if you shoot the Holy Black through those tank-like firearms, say so and become a DIRTY RAT!

Please include your state, country or territory.

Welcome!

Whooo doggie, John Boy does such a fine job of welcoming new WartHogs, I don't know if I should even attempt to follow his example!

Besides, how do I say that Stagecoach came riding in on his horse? But he did, and he loves his Rugers, so welcome to the RATS hole, Stagecoach! You are RATS # 107!

Back on the SASS Wire, Tres Equis tossed in his name, with a plethora of fine, sturdy Rugers, so he gets #109!

Welcome to the RATS Hole, Trailrider, and #119 is yours! It looks like you have a lot on your mind about the Rugers, how about opening some new threads so folks can discuss them? I'd split them off, but I don't know what subject headers you'd use.

Again, welcome!

My "Bakers Dozen" of Single Action Rugers is as follows:

O.M. Bearcat
O.M. Single Six 9-1/2" fixed sights
O.M.Super Single Six 6-1/2"
N.M. Super Single Six 9-1/2"
Flat Top .357 4-5/8"
N.M. Blackhawk .357/.9mm 6-1/2"
N.M. Blackhawk .45/.45acp 4-5/8"
N.M. Stainless Super Blackhawk 5-1/2"
N.M. Super Blackhawk 10-1/2"
.44 Mag Bisley 7-1/2"
Vaquero .44 Mag 4-5/8"
Vaquero .44 Mag 7-1/2"

I reckon Arabela Kid is, indeed one of the RATS. He'd be a Mega-RATS if there was such a category, but he gets #120!


I also got a request via email to add Raisin River Ron to the list, and his number: 121, is also posted for all to see.

CanChaserKate, you're number 133, and we'll turn your name to black once you start shooting at matches!

Sheriff A.E. Moses steps up and claims number 134. (His other revolvers are jealous and wannabe Rugers, but alas, they will never be anything but the lonely church mice relatives.) ;D

Tricky Trina thinks she is a baby rat, but RATS are RATS and she's in at number 135!

Danny Bear Claw wanders up, bringing a full RATS pack of his own and gets number 136!

And then Delmonico happened to mention to me that he has a customized Ruger that he can shoot, even with severe carpal tunnel. He's not only RATS # 137, he's the RATS Camp Cook!!

And so, D.R. Greysun ambles up to the RATS Hole, bearing with him over 30 years of wisdom in shooting Rugers. The secret password is whispered into his ear, along with the number 138.

Then along comes Dakota Sharp Shooter, risking life and limb and membership in the Grumpy Old Farts With Guns, by being less grumpy by shooting WARTHOG Rugers. Since it is his risk to take, Dakota gets # 139 and slips into the RATS Hole.

Welcome!!

I sure would like to be a RAT. . .I carry a Ruger but it's not the six shooter type. Maybe if I load 5 rounds instead of 10 and leave the chamber empty in my Ruger P95?

Maybe load up my rounds with the Holy BP???

Ok, ok, I'll just have to file my infernal taxes and buy me a new Rooger when I gets my tax returns.

Faden Fast, come on it! You are counted as number 145!

Ol 'Satch, the RATS aren't limited to Cowboy Action Rugers. For those who love their non-CAS Rugers, RATS means Rugers Are the Toughest Shooters! So, you are a member of the RATS with number 146! But that shouldn't stop you from getting that new Rooger. ;)

Welcome to the RATS Hole!

I'm shooting two different Vaqueros.

One is stainless, Ruger Vaquero, 5.5" barrel, .357/.38 with Faux Ivory on the hogleg.
The other is a color-case, Ruger Vaquero 357/38, 5.5" with Colt handles.

I shoot Black Hills .38.

My wife, Skylark, shoots a matched pair of Ruger Vaquero Bird'sheads in .38 too!
However, she's out of the game for a while since we just has a matched pair of twin boys in December.   :)

Then Reelfoot Regulator wanders up to the Hole, showing us yet another of the Polka Dot RATS, unable to decide if he is a Soot Lord or a Heathen, combining the best of both worlds and snatching up #151!

Are you a Ruger shooter? Do you think that Rugers Are the Toughest Sixguns? Do you want to be one of the noble RATS?

Then put your request here, and if you shoot the Holy Black through those tank-like firearms, say so and become a DIRTY RAT!

Welcome!

Two new pards stepped up to the door, tapping for admittance.

Welcome Badlands Walker, founder of PWDFR! You are RATS # 180!

And there I spy a piebald member of the RATS, sniffing at the Dark Side! Welcome Rev Willy Duncum with number 181!

Late one evening, there came a scratching and a clawing, then a BANGING at the door to the RATS Hole. The peep hole opened and a voice said: "Waddya want?"

Lo and behold, three pards stood there, Rugers in hand. "We wanna be RATS!"

And so it was that G. Springer Wills came to be known as RATS # 184, Bad Hand Dan as RATS # 185, and Kool Hand Kel ( who had whispered from a dark corner) became RATS # 186!!

The banging continued, more vehement.

"Go away, I gave at the office. No solicitors. We paid our bills!"

The banging stopped, only to be replaced by the sounds of cylinders spinning as though checking for high primers.

The door to the peep hole flies open.

"Oh!! Why didn't you say so?" The beady eyes took in the new pards, the fingers tapped quickly to add to the list and the door swings open.

"Well hey and howdy Parson Oneless, you have number 187! And JD Trampas, look at you with number 188!! Welcome to the RATS Hole!"

The wagon is loaded with the supplies and she is just slipping into her nightshirt for some sleep before heading out to the match in the morning when the door to the RATS Hole starts thumping.

"Dagnabbit, go to sleep! Go shoot your Rugers in the morning! Let me get some rest!!"

But the thumps continue.
"All right, all right, keep yer drawers up, I'm coming!"
The peephole opens and her grumpiness vanishes as she spies two new RATS at the door.

"Chick Brewster, you've got number 190, and let us know when you slip over to the darkside so you can be a DIRTY RAT! Missouri Bountyhunter, yer # 191! Come on in, grab a corner and a bunk for some shut eye, we're shooting tomorrow! Welcome to the RATS Hole!"

There came a scritching at the door to the RATS Hole. The peephole opened and beady eyes looked around, but all that was seen was the darkness of black. The peephole started to close, but was flung back open with a hefty kick from the outside. The eyes searched more carefully, then the door swung open.

Well, to be honest I owned two Ruger .45 Vaqueroes at one time.  A 7.5 inch, Blued model and a White Micarta gripped 5.5 inch, blued model.  I sold both to get a pair of Uberti's

Never had any trouble with the RV's, it's just that they didn't fit my temperment.

Oh yeah!  I used to have three other Rugers as well, My first was a Security six in .38 Spl, a .357 GP100, and a NM Blackhawk in .45 Colt.  All three went for other cowboy guns.

No distribution, only consumption.  I made the mistake early in my lifetime selling guns when I thought I needed the money.  Won't do that again, missed every single one of them.

All the knocks, kicks, and bangs on the door to the RATS Hole weren't ignored, they simply weren't heard as the list keeper was out, drowning out the sounds with the ***BOOM***s of her Rugers.

Eventually, the peephole opens.

"What's this? One of the "used to be" RATS? Pish and posh, you know you want to own a Ruger, Bushwack Bill, yer number 201."

The teeny eyes move on to the next pard, then blink.

"Eleven Rugers, Judge Bart Rose, and you ask if you are qualified? Oh, please, stop teasing. Yer number 202."

The eyes move on again, then stop, back track and become huge.

"FIFTEEN?!? Fifteen Rugers? Holy Tamoley, Mustang Gregg has to come up with some kind of title for you, Gold Canyon Kid. Maybe something like "Lord of the RATS"  Dang, that's a lot of Rugers. Did you check under the seat cushions of the couch for more of them? Yer number 203."

"Mustang Gregg, please tell Mustang Gary he's in, with number 205. If he changes his name, we can fix it on the list.

"Uncle Chan, you posted, are you gonna join up?

"Come on in gents and welcome to the RATS Hole!"

The peephole opens. "Whaddya want?"

Her answer is the resounding thump of no less than 20 magnificent Rugers for her to see.

"Oh, MY!

"Oh no!! It's a poor, lonely, NAKED member of the RATS!

"Hurry and come in, Ciego, you're among friends and when the time comes, you'll be out shooting Rugers once again. You're number 207!

Welcome from another "Modern" RATS member

Hi Major,

Missed you at the MA/CT/RI Championships last weekend.  It was a good shoot.  I saw a number of Circle K members there (Saloon Shot, Anabelle & Rowdy, Peddler Jack, Lonestar Jake and probably some more)
Managed not to drop anything this time either  ;D
If you ever get a chance wander on down the CT Valley Bushwhackers shoot.  They put on a pretty good match.

The Listkeeper is awakened from a good sleep by the sound of big boots kicking at the door. Grumbling, she makes her way to the peephole and opens it, to see the chest of a person. "'Bout time he showed up," she mumbles and opens the door. And there he stands, kinda towering over her, with that long, red-haired braid hangin' down his back, his teeth showing in a soot-faced grin.

"Was there ever any question? Shooting those fine Rugers and having flames coming out the ends of them, and stinking me out at the loading table with the stench of chicken farts? Couldn't sign you up without you asking, though.  Yep, yer one of the DIRTY RATS if there ever was one. Come on in, Linc, you're number 211! Welcome to the RATS Hole!"

She cranes her neck to try to look beyond him. "Where's Beth?"

While the Listkeeper was away, a clamor started outside the RATS Hole. One by one, three new Ruger shooters showed up and banged on the door, one of them coming all the way from Norway! At long last, the Listkeeper comes home and throws open the door.

"Well, hey and Howdy, look at the new crop! Charles Quantrill, of course you are welcome and you have number 212! Dang, another Charlie, but with a different last name... sure you aren't brothers?

Mustang Gregg,

Mine was built using one of the Muzzelite stocks. They feel like a Toy's R Us toy, but make a really compact 27" package and with RamLine plastic magazines, it is very lightweight. I would rather have a 7.62x39, but I have this one and will probably hang on to it as it is (visually) well worn from use and wouldn't bring much on the market.

As I am new here, I have no way of knowing how many times it has been addressed already, but I could not help but notice your 'more than casual' resemblance to a certain, turn-of-the-century American Hero... My compliments!!!!

"Is that whining I hear, from a Ruger lover? Tsk tsk, Irish Tom, I should make you stand out in the cold while I welcome Wily Yankee to the RATS!"

The peephole closes and the front door opens.

"Wily Yankee, you are RATS number 219! Come on in, welcome to the RATS Hole!"

She opens the door wide enough for Wily to scurry through, then stares at Tom.

"We don't do much recruiting, Irish Tom. Mustang Gregg kinda figures that if folks love their Rugers, they'll find us eventually, just like you did!"

About them Ruger's that are built like tanks; have brace of  4 3/4" Blackhawk's in 38/357 in standard finish, well worn blue (looks black to me).  A brace of  SS, 5.5" Ruger Bisley's in 38/357 and a brace of Davidson's Ruger Vaquero,  4 3/4", SS in 38WCF that came with an extra  .40S&W cylinder.
It don't count, but I'm thinking on a brace of  New Vaquero's also in SS and 38.

After a long weekend of shooting her Rugers, the listkeeper is sitting in the backroom, a towel and cylinder in her lap, the scent of Break-Free heavy in the air as she hears the banging on the front door. Setting down her cleaning rod, she gathers up the stuff in her lap and looks through the peep hole. The peephole closes almost immediately and the front door opens.

"Well, howdy, El Deguello! You and I might have relatives back on our family tree someplace, NancyLee is a fine, fine name. And lookit your Rugers! Yep, you're one of the RATS, and you have number 221! Welcome and come on in!"

She then turns and nudges Mustang Gregg aside to see Boon. ( It's a gentle nudge since he is the founder and all, and deserves some respect...)

"Howdy Boon! Gregg is right, you don't have to be an active Cowboy Action Shooter to be one of the RATS. You just have to own and love your Rugers. You'd still have fun if you went to some local matches, the pards there would help you any way they can. Meanwhile, come on in, you are RATS number 222! Welcome!"

:D

Glad to have ya, Boon! There's no fee nor any badges for the RATS. All it takes is owning and loving your Rugers! There's also a "newbie" forum here on CAS City that is full of information for shooters new to CAS. If you have questions, I'm sure you can get help there. Dang, it is cool that you are married to a lady who makes ammo. I bet you always make sure to stay on her good side!

Querida, all you have to do for joining is come up to the door and show us what Rugers you own, shoot, and love, just like Last-laugh Easton just did with his Vaqueros! Come on in, Last-laugh, you are RATS number 224!

Blondetta? Is it true? Have you given in to the Dark Side? Are you now an illustrious member of the Soot Ladies? Say it is so, and I'll put your name in bold!

To the almighty Listkeeper, Tres Pinos and I, Querida as we knock on thy honorable door, do humble ask that our names be embossed with the other fine RATS as we will always and only shoot Rugers.  Tres Pinos shoots 45 Ruger Bisleys and also has a pair of 44-40 Ruger Vaqueros.  I shoot 38 Ruger Bisleys and also have a pair of 38 Ruger Blackhawks.  There has never been a finer gun as Ruger.

Guess I found a place I belong!
When shootin' ca'tridge, I'm a RAT, and most times a Dirty RATS.

I shoot 2 Ruger large frame Vaqueros, blued/cch 5-1/2" .357
They've got:

unfortunately I shoot so slow that it's all wasted on me.  But they sure are nice  :D

Also, I've got 2 Old Model Blackhawks, .357 4-5/8" that are a joy to shoot,
and an Old Model Blackhawk, .357 6-1/2" that just graces the safe right now.

My first pistol was a Ruger 89 9mm.

I've had (and wish I still had)
2 Bisley Vaqueros .45 5-1/2" (1 stainless, 1 blued)
2 New Model Blackhawks 5-1/2" .45
1 New Model Blackhawk (stainless)
1 Ruger Flat-top

Can I join???

Ah, Monday, when the drudges go back to work and the leisurely nap in hammocks on a cool Fall day. But the Listkeeper must tend to her duties, even on pretty days. On hearing the knocking, the peephole flies open.

"Doc Evie! But you are already in! Did you lose your keys? And look at you, did you fall down or something?  How did you.. oh, that's not grime, thats SOOT!! Yes, of course you are one of the DIRTY RATS!."

The door opens as she laughs and Doc Evie scurries past her.

"Uncle Chan, what a pleasure! Please come in, you are RATS number 229!"

"And McCandless, why would you creep down the alley on your BIRTHDAY?? What's that you say? You want to be one of the RATS and took time out on your special day just to join?? Well. Humph." The Listkeeper looks him up, then looks him down, ponders a bit and humphs again.

"Well, you see, we had a double tap a while back, where one of the early RATS forgot and signed up twice. I'd stuck a place holder on the list, not wanting to adjust anyone's cherished numbers. Seems to me that giving you that number would make a nice birthday present. So, come on in McCandless, you are RATS number 166!!

"Welcome Uncle Chan and McCandless to the RATS Hole!"

Well I guess I qualify as a RAT.  Both me and ole LIll E. Pond have been shootin' Vaqueros since day one...about 12 years ago.  Between us we have 5 of them.  Lill E. has two stainless 5-1/2s and I have one stainless 5-1/2, one stainless 7-1/2 and one stainless Bisley Vaquero.  I hate cleaning guns that's why stainless. :)

At the knocking on the door, the Listkeeper opens the peephole. A pair of beady, bright eyes take in the burly man.

"Hmm."

There is a pause, then the peephole closes and the front door opens.

"Well, Dorado Slim, looks like you and your lady qualify to be members of the RATS!" She adds a mumble under her breath, "I should have gone with stainless, that derned fake case coloring draws rust like bees to honey!" Then she raises her voice once more. "Come on in, you are RATS number 230, and the fine Lill E. Pond is RATS number 231! Welcome to the RATS Hole!"

It was 1730 hrs on a dark, moonless night. We were working PMs out of the West side. Outside Annie's door we stood, my partner to one side and I to the other. Knock, knock, knock. "Sheriff's Department, ma'am. We have a search warrant." my partner announces. Inside there's a rustle of papers and footsteps approaching the door. "A warrant, for what?" Annie demands. "Possession of dangerous firearms, ma'am." I say. "Lemme see your ID." Annie says through the peephole. We pop our creds and the door opens. "I can assure you Deputies, there's no dangerous firearms on the premises." Annie says standing there in her "Ruger's Rock" t-shirt. "Really. Our CI tells us you're holdin' some very dangerous firearms; ma'am; specifically a Colt, a Cimarron and a Beretta." "Absolutely not, deputies. You see, ever since I met my Rugers, I've left the others in the dust and I'll never go back." "Never, huh. Not even for a Peacemaker, firin' Lightning  ridin' Thunderer in a Stampede?" I snap. "Deputies, since I met Mr. Ruger, there's only one lawman for me and it's a Sheriff;  hard as stainless steel, white pearl handles, limited numbers and chambered for .45s." Annie professes." " Wadda ya think partner?" "I say we obviously have the wong address on this warrant. This girl knows quality firearms. Wada you think?" "Works for me.  Sorry to bother you, ma'am. Obvioulsy outdated intel." That's OK, deputies. Stop by anytime. We're in a city jursdiction and I always prefer the company of Sheriffs." "Why's that, ma'am." I ask. "Well, bein' a cowboy mounted shooter, a Single Peacemaker just doesn't do it for me. I like things that come in pairs...like Sheriffs...Ruger or otherwise." The door closed, the lock fell and from behind the peephole, all that could be heard were footsteps walking away and the faint sound of a dispatcher's voice; "Copy that, David 6. We'll show you 10-6 until further."

It's not a poem but it should qualify us for membership as a couple of Dirty RATS! We really do shoot Ruger Sheriffs; four of them.

Feller RATS:

I just got word from "Cousin Vinny" that he would like to be a RATS member too.  He has distinguished hisself with some new stainless Rugers. 
He is now proudly on on our RATS of Honor.

I have also added the name of Mike Clement to the space for RATS who have gone before us.  He was the most avid "RUGER-ONLY" shooter we have ever knowed here.  He also had the largest collection of early Blackhawks & "200th Year" versions we have ever seen.

Yeaaaahooo or as we cajuns say Aiiiieeee!  I would like to be a RAT, Please consider my request.  My first six-shooter was/is a Ruger single six Bisley in .22 caliber stainless 4 5/8" barrel  my second was/is a Vaquero OS (Old Style) .45 cal stainless 5 1/2" barrel jest like Roy and/or Gene, my third is a .45 Cal Blued Bisley 4 5/8 " barrel I am also the proud owner of a Winchester model '94 "Trails End" in .45 Cal. Yessir, I'm almost thar all I need now is a period shotgun and a place to shoot---I'm not really looking I'm not really looking for a shotgun now as I have to "recover" the money spent on the '94 before seeking my final gun

Well, my first pistol was the Ruger GP 100 in .357.  I still have that baby.  My Vaquero is in .357 also, and the only smokeless round shot through it was from the factory test fire.  The rest of the time it has been all Black.  So I guess that would make me a Dirty RAT.

May I come into the RAT hole? :)

      OK, after many years in SASS shooting conversions and just recently GW IIs, they finally made a Vaquero to fit me. I had one years ago and never had anything against it, It just didn't feel right. I looked for RNVs before I bought my GWs but didn't find any. At the last Bristol Wi shoot, I won a pair of 4 3/4" blued .357 RNVs. I just got to shoot them at my first match of the season. FANTASTIC. I am definitely one of the RATS now. Sign me up.

Deal me in, boys and girls.  I love sixguns of every make and model, but the ones I shoot the most are Rugers.  I've been shooting a pair of .44-40 Vaqueros since I got started in cowboy action shooting seven years ago.  I also get out to the range with my Single Sixes, Mark II, .44 Bisley, and Blackhawks every chance I get.  I have one of the .357 Flattops that came out last year and really enjoy shooting it.  The local gunshop is waiting for it's allocation of the new .44 Flattops, and my name is at the top of the waiting list.

Like I said, they're all good... Colts, S&W, USFA, Ruger, and the rest.  I just end up shooting Rugers more than all the others put together.  I guess that says something.

Well I am new to the Cowboy action shooting. I have always been in love with Western movies and collect guns that I like. I did not know about SASS and others till watching the Cowboys shot on the outdoor channel. Now I am hooked. I have found a SASS affil. club in my area and have been talking with them about meeting and really getting into it.

I live in Pearl River, Louisiana and my first cowboy action pistol is a New RV .45 long colt.

Does one Ruger make me a RAT?

I bought a well worn .357 Balckhawk a few years ago at a gun show (traded a .303enfield rifle and some cash for it)   I had wanted one for a while.  When I started to reload .357/.38 the Ruger was the first gun I fired any of the rounds in.  I knew this was the strongest gun I had. 
It still functions perfect and will remain one of my "cowboy" guns for a while.
It isn't a colt or clone but it was never intended to be. 
long live the RUGER!

We shoot cowboy guns the first and third Friday evenings each month until winter.

Since I work 100 miles from the house now, I don't have any free time on Fridays, no more.  But we're gonna try again.  Are you shooting in Oct & Nov?  Email me your phone no.

My first pistol was a Ruger bought back in 66 at the exchange in Alaska.  Guess I have been a RATS for a long time and did not know it.  Currently have 14 or so and have let go probably close to 65-70 during my lifetime, rifles, pistols and revovlers.  For some reason as much as I like a Colt style gun I have never kept one for long while I just love to keep hold of my Rugers.  Wish they made an open top.  Maybe a 44 special.

THanks for forming a club I can enjoy as much as SASS.

Howdy, Mustang Gregg,

As you know, I've been lurking around here for awhile.  Well, lurking between here and the Barracks!  ;D  Been shooting Rugers in CAS for about 18-19 years now!  What calibers, you ask?  Why .44's, of course.  Both .44-40 and .44 Extra Long Russian (that's .44 Mangle-em loaded to .44-40 specs).  If I run low on .44-40 ammo, I just change cylinders in my Vaqueros and grab the matching rifle, an' go!

Interesting thing...  I have my .44 Mag. dies set up to not quite full length resize the brass using an RCBS carbide sizer die.  Works fine in my Vaquero cylinders and in a Rossi Puma (old model)!  But try to chamber those rounds in a .44 Mag Flat Top, and they won't go!   :-\  Have to FL resize the brass to fit in the Flat Top!  Go figure...

Please sign me up as a "RAT(S)".

I have been a Ruger shooter for many years, A Bi Centennial model 22 was my first hangdun. Sold it to feed children after a few years. Owned lots of Ruger rifles (currently have a 77Mk2 which started as a 308 and is now a 220 Swift) and also had a 45ACP Ruger.

My SA shooting started with a 44Mag Vaquero some years ago (the one in the pic) and it did full duty with all manner of full loads for a couple of years before I picked up the NMSBH in the photo. Both great guns.

(http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k228/4fingermick/Handguns/Dvc00088.jpg)

I had a 7.5" Bisley BH, but didn't like it as it chopped up my big hands, I still have the scars.

(http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k228/4fingermick/Handguns/Handguns%20that%20have%20moved%20on/5b596c9c.jpg)

When the Govt banned my 45ACP Colt Commander,

(http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k228/4fingermick/Handguns/Handguns%20that%20have%20moved%20on/gun1.jpg)

 I went out and bought a new Colt 1911 in 38Super (they banned the short bbls and big calibres, except for Cowboy shooting and silouette) and a sequentially numbered BHs convertibles in 45Colt/ACP. I haven't got a photo yet of them but heres a couple of me shooting them. Dang it but that Texas star kept dodgin!

(http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k228/4fingermick/Handguns/c739a8e5.jpg)

I'm also in the process of deciding whether to buy two new Vaqueros in 45 (someone said they make them in sissy calibres as well) or two clones in 44/40 or 45Colt.

I'm from Australia, in the state of New South Wales, at Bathurst we like to think of it as the home of motor racing in Australia, we have 'The Mountain', Mount Panorama which is a really tough tight track with big straights up and down the mountain and at the bottom accross the pits, with some diabolical bends at the top, one scary track. We also have the big racing museum here. Mt Panorama also has one other feature, there is a range stuck on the side of it  ;D. Unfortunately, they don't do cowboy, but I also shoot at a really good range about 60 miles away, which shoots cowboy.

We are about 120 miles west of Sydney and about 60 miles west of the Blue Mountains.

Lots of good hunting around here.

Cheers, Mick.

PS:

Sissy calibres: anything that starts with a number smaller than 4!

By the way do I get a number or have I just been stuck straight on a wanted poster?

I have 2 older model Vequaro's in 45 long colt.  Aint a better pistol on the market!  both for rugedness, durability, reliability, and SAFETY!!!!!!(remember the ol transfer bar????) and with a little work very accurate!!!!!

Easy to work on and clean, even if your a Dirty Rat!

So, I intentionally acquired Rugers because of all of the above.   A little heavy, but what the hay, I like my 2 buddies,  Peat and Repeat.

I wanna be a Rat!!!!!!!!!

Howdy Gregg and All the RATS,

I'm a big Ruger fan. I've got 14 of um, 2 RV SS .357Mag, 2 RV SS .45LC, 2 50th Aniv BH .357Mag, 1 50th Aniv BH .44Mag, 1 SBH .44Mag Buntline, 2 10/22 .22LR, 1 Race Rifle 10/22 .22LR, 1 10/22 .22WMR, 1 M 77 MKII .223, and 1 Deerfield Carbine .44Mag. Do I like Rugers? Well, I'm not sure yet, I'm just trying these out to see if Ilike um.  :D

I'm from central Florida, and I shoot S.A.S.S. with the Hatbill Gang in Titusville, Fl.

I wanna be a RATS.

I also shoot Black Powder blanks at balloons from horseback with CFCMSA.

So I guess that would make me a Dirty Blankity Blank Rat.

So far working out good.  Im looking forward to having time to go out this year and shoot.  Im a cop in a small town outside Philly.  The last year and a half we have been short staffed.  Being Civil Service, it takes divine intervention to have a meeting to have a meeting, to have a meeting about being short, etc etc etc etc.  All is good now and Ive got vacation time to use.

But today I am off work out running errands.
I start a new position tomorrow that is only 10 miles from the house.
So I'm pretty pumped up about it.

Nice collection of Ruger-Iron you got there.  Hope you get to shoot plenty this season.
Hope to run into you later this summer.  I will be in PA for 7+ weeks going for training.

Are you a Ruger shooter? Do you think that Rugers Are the Toughest Sixguns? Do you want to be one of the noble RATS?

Then put your request here, and if you shoot the Holy Black through those tank-like firearms, say so and become a DIRTY RAT!

Welcome!

No badges.   Annie Lee Independent & I pondered long & hard on this when we started the RATS outit.  We reckoned since there are no dues---then no badges.  I have actually looked into badges & had a sample made up.  It is pretty cool, but I have got no approval from Ruger yet if'n they would allow us to use the EAGLE like I done. 
If we did start a RATS badge system, we would attach our own self-purchased (from Ruger products) EAGLE seal.

PM me your email & I'll attach a pic of the sample badge.

Been a Ruger owner for some time although it was a MkII government target .22. It has always been my favorite gun, just for accuracy, quality, dependability, etc. Mainly because it is cheap to shoot and easy to introduce youngsters and newbies to shooting sports alongside my good ol' model 60 Marlin.
Picked up consecutive NV's  5 1/2 in 45. CC/BB this evenin'

Hi Gregg
    I have only shot Rugers regular at CAS matches (Wild Bunch excluded). Started with a 5 1/2'' SBH & a SBH Bisley, swithched to a pair of regular SBH's. Then A pair of BCH Bisley Vaqueros in 44 Mag ( these have been converted to regulars), next a pair of stainless 38/40-40S&W, and lastly a brace of BCH 44-40's. All the Vaqueros are 4 5/8ths bbls. One of the regular SBH's still dose duty as a long rang side match pistol (my son keeps winning, and beating me with it).
   So Sign me up. ;D

                                                                                   Mosquito Jack

P.S. My wild bunch gus are a S&W 1917 army and a real 1911 (Colt) both over 89 years old. If I could figure out how to shoot Rugers I would. :)

Best sign me up too.  First handgun I shot was a single six, owned first ruger (10/22) at the ripe age of 15, and the first handgun I bought was a Super Blackhawk.  My first set of CAS guns were .44 Vaqeros and between my wife and I we have owned 16 ruger handguns and still counting.  Looking forward to my newest set, .45 New Vaqueros around the first of next month.  I shoot only BP so I guess that makes me a Dirty Rat.

I want to be a rat too.  I bought my first 22 single six Ruger in July 1967 and I am still shooting it.  I just bought a pair of New Vaqueros in SS 38/357 cal.  They shoot great.  I also had a Ruger P 89 stolen in Corpus Christi, Texas, this summer, serial number 310-33041 Please notify your local law enforcement people if you happen to run across it.  I have now shot CAS twice and I am hooked.  I just wished I could have done it 30 years ago.  It is far more interesting that punching holes in paper targets

Tomorrow is the last shoot of my first year as a CAS shooter, and I'm looking forward to, and planning for, next year. Among those plans is being listed as a RAT - but can I have it both ways? I have one set of Vaqueros I use for smokeless, and a second set for BP. I've been alternating every other match - last Sunday was smokeless, tomorrow is BP. Each way has its own attractions, and I will be shooting both for sure next season. I'll let you decide how to list me, if you will!

I WOULD LOVE TO BE A RATS MEMBER!!!  My OMV is the best gun I have ever owned, plow handles and all.  The narrow frame is not for me, and fixed sights are a must.  It makes one handed shooting feel as natural as kissing a perty gal.  I also have to give praise to Ruger's invention of the transfer bar.  What good is it to carry a sixgun when you can only feed in 5 rounds to be safe?

Are you a Ruger shooter? Do you think that Rugers Are the Toughest Sixguns? Do you want to be one of the noble RATS?

Then put your request here, and if you shoot the Holy Black through those tank-like firearms, say so and become a DIRTY RAT!

Welcome!

I figure I qualify.  I met Bill when I was 8 or 9, and the first guns I bought were Rugers.  Haven't shot a CAS match with anything else.  I do dabble with clones of percussion COLTS, but I will always have a a Ruger (or 10) in the collection.  I would be pleased if you added me to the RATS list.

Yup, tween me and Lil we went through a box of .357, a box of.38, the two rounds I had in my watch pocket and one from the rig as well as a 20 box of .30-30 through Marline.  I don't know how many .22's the kids shot but the box is much lighter than before.  Weather was hazy but not freezing.  It makes the muzzle flash really show in those conditions.  We were up to our ankles in brass by dusk.  A VERY good day!  Thanks again for the warm welcome.

My first three guns were Rugers.  I'm a long timey RAT. 

Now I'm looking for 2 Old Model Vaqueros (OMV) to continue the tradition.  Blued or Stainless (prefer SS), 4 5/8 or 5 1/2 (prefer 5 1/2.)  A SoCal F2F transfer through an FFL would be very much the preferred solution.

Got my first when I was 13.   I'm 49 and have 7 revolvers now....all Rugers.   I don't call them clones.  They're improved models and I know they are the toughest.   My heavy 250g 45 loads scream out a 5.5 inch barrel at 1350 f/s .   That is a lot of energy for a 45  and approaches .454 levels.   Still very manageable with a heavy OMV.   I love them! ;D

Most treasured is the LAST COWBOY 45LC Birdshead SS.

You put it in front of me and I'll give it a whirl!! Don't care how big it is!! (Stop trying to make me jealous with all those big-bore pistols.) My Uberti Walker is no slouch either.(60 gr of black behind a .451 ball?)

Well, sign me up if there's more room...
I just picked up the first of two NM Vaqueros at the beginning of the long weekend and already have a couple hundred rounds through it.  4 5/8" stainless .357 shoots POA/POI with my loads.  Very happy with it.  Also brought out an old Redhawk .44 mag I've had for more years than I remember.  Put a hundred full house loads through that as well.

Take care,
Buck Rawhide, CA

I must say I have come to admire the 20th century Black Powder ROA that "Bill Ruger" so diligently make happen...with designs of the Rem, S&S, Colt Navy Grip, and Ruger Blackhawk frame. What's not to like. I'm a Diehard 1858 Rem Man...and of course loved the ROA from the first shot. So not am I only a SCORRS, Darksider, sometimes a WARTHOG, and a Voy OLD COOT, I'm also now a "Dirty Rat"!!! Thanks for havin' me.

Used Rugers exclusively for SASS shooting, just bought a pair of 44/40 Colt clones, which I dearly love, but I find the trigger guard is a bit crowded for my big fingers, so it looks like I'll be dusting off the 45 Colt New Model Vaqueros and ratting on.

Yo there Lt.Col. Mustang Gregg & all RATS shooters,
I'm The Reverend Sassquatch Dawg from Evergreen, CO and my Cas City alias is Yeti76620.  I've been skirt-en around this Forum for awhile  and I'm ready to say that: I too LOVE my RUGERS!!!I have a pair of 357 MAG OM Vaqueros and I shoot them as hot as the speed limit allows me.  I would not think of trusting any other firearm to push 158gr just south of 1000 fps in CAS then there are the "Super Loads" that thrill me.  STILL TRUE & STOUT!  May I be a member of the RATS too?    ;D
A Brother At Arms,
Yeti

I guess I may as well confess that I'm a RAT, too.

I started shooting SASS with my 19 year old Ruger Blackhawk and now have given up thinking about shooting with anything but a Ruger.  3Reds shoots with a matched pair of NM Vaqueros.  I'll shoot my next match a pair of NM Vaqueros (not quite matching thanks to the demise of the CCH guns).

All in all, they have been very reliable.  The one problem I had with my Blackhawk (screw fell off and went MIA) was quickly resolved by Ruger for free.

Nope!  I ain't seen it yet.  Did you send it to Table Rock, NE (right address) or Malcolm, NE (wrong address)?
I have been working with getting the damned badge order attachment to have the CORRECT price & CORRECT address.  But it don't come through right on all computers.   >:(

I will check & see if it is at the other address.

Did we ever get the number of letters shortened up okay?

Post by: Les on August 11, 2009, 09:47:54 pm
  My name is Les and I'm new in this site and thought that I'd tell a little about myself.  I retired as a police detective in a suburb of
Columbus 6 years ago and my wife and I retired to SW Florida.  I've been shooting since I was 8 and became the proud owner of a new Daisy pump bb gun.  A year later it was with a new JC Higgins bolt action 22 and the next a JC Higgins bolt action 410. Living on a farm in Central Ohio gave ample opportunity for shooting and hunting. And shoot, I did; a lot.  When I was a teen, my father had a  Double Nine revolver which we both shot a lot.  This hooked me for life on single actions.
  My first experience with Ruger was when I was at the CPD Academy and in the midst of firearms qualifications.  CPD at the time was still using 38 revolvers as modern 45 cal double action semi-automatics were still a few years off.  The department at that time furnished either Colt Troopers or Smith 686s both in 4 inch.  Duty ammo was +P+ and the range was and still remains the largest indoor range in the world.  All my shooting came in handy but I really didn't shoot as well as I thought that I should.  I had started out with the Colt which the range instructors  said really wasn't all that well made.  I next tried the Smith and did a little better but not as well as I wanted.  I had a Smith model 29 at the time in polished stainless with an 8 inch barrel.  I asked but it was a no go for carry.  The range instructors suggested a Ruger GP 100.  I bought one in mat stainless and instantly added 10 points to my scores.The bottom line was that I ended up shooting a 96% and got a pistol experts badge.
  Advance quite a few years later and I have my duty weapon from my retirement, a Smith 3913.  For fun, I have a Ruger Single
Six 22 in stainless and a 4 1/2 inch barrel.  For my upcoming 60th birthday my wife bought me a New Vaquero polished stainless
45 cal 7 1/2 inch barrel.  It was really my only consideration.  I'd like to get involved in cowboy action shooting at some point but
for now am just having fun getting the right equipment.

Looking over the posts and I seen that Lone Rider would like his wife, "Biggest Heart" in the R.A.T.S. Roll of Honor and I didn't see her added.  I could be mistaken and I don't mean to butt in, just looking out for ALL my Pard's six and maybe a gander might need to be engaged.  I could be wrong though.   ;)

Prefer the Vaqueros for mounted shooting because thats one gun that is built strong enough that if I miss my holster and one hits the ground I can pick it up and its not broke just dirty. RELIABLE and Nearly BULLETPROOF!!! I would like one of those badges myself. Thanks, Regret Chancy

May I request a favor from you, My Best Pard in the whole wide world just pass away some hours ago and I would appreciate it if ya would add him to the RATS wall of Honor as one of the deciesed members.

Pegleg Pete was a Frontiersman who shot the Ruger Old Armies with a vengeance out here in the Colorado Territory.

I put a post over on the Longbranch to tell a bit 'bout My Pard.  No one knows why he died at this time but I was talking to him a few hours before that and he was complaining 'bout the lack of black powder smoke in his system.

Thank you Sir,

My Ruger is a Single Six .32 H&R Mag, with case hardened frame and faux ivory grip.
She may be small, but is no delicate flower and while there may be many like it, this one is mine.
It seems that even though this is a wonderful model, it was short lived.

I have had a few folks tell me it is to small. But then... how big of a caliber does one need to feel like a "real man"?

Along with my Ruger, you can see my faithful Ken Richards knife, which I have had at my side longer than I have had a wife.

I would like to be a part of any group that can appreciate the Ruger revolver, even if it isn't a "big gun".

Also shoot an ol' 3 screw Super Single Six (1969) 22/22 mag, a Stand Model Mark I semi-auto 22 (1970), and a 6" SS GP100 357. Am in the buying mood and hunt for a Super Blawkhawk 44.

Have shot BP in them but do mostly smokeless now. My SASS # is 87007 and Alias is "Bowie Knife Dick". Application form on page one is not working so any more info you need just email me.

My main match six guns are a pair of Old Model Vaquero Bisley s in .38/.357 case colored with 5-1/2" blue barrels.
I'm told that they were made in 2004 which makes them among the very last of the Old Model s .
 I'm lookin' forward to bein' part of the RATS . Where does a certified RAT trade for thier official patch, or badge, or whatever?

Pair of sequentially numbered stainless New Vaqueros in .357.  45/8" Shilen match grade barrels.  Ron Power Colt grip frames.  Ron Power hammer and trigger sets.  Wolfe springs.  Competitive Edge Gunworks custom cylinders.  Buffalo horn grip panels.  Built by Larry Crow of Competitive Edge Gunworks.  These are my main match pistols and other than a lone Colt New Frontier .22 aquired somewhere along the line, Rugers are the only SA's I've ever owned.  First new one was a Blackhawk in .30 Carbine purchased from a local sporting goods store the same year that caliber was introduced.  Got a number for an old RAT?

I don't shoot competition but I do shoot Rugers . . . does that qualify me to be a RAT????

I love my Ruger New Vaquero - have a blued 5 1/2" in 357 that I put a lot of 38 spls. through -  mainly at paper plates, dead pop cans and a woodchuck once in a while - and I love everything about the "old west" . . . . .

When the New Vaquero gets too warm . . . I switch off to my Ruger Super Bearcat . . . one of the older ones and a sweet shooting little SA . . . . .

And if I'm feeling "real macho" . . . . I just might stoke up my Ruger SR9 . . . . .  but still prefer the New Vaquero over everything else . . . .

I'm in southern Arizona during the winter . . . where I concentrate on making gun leather . . . both SA rigs and the more modern semi-auto holsters . . . in the summer, I'm back in Michigan from May thru the end of Sept . . . .

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo . . . does that qualify me to be a RATS???  Thanks!   :)

Well folks, it seems as if I have degenerated from being the sixhundred and first RAT to being an honest to filthyest Dirty RAT.
I just came home from an auction here in my town and bought myself a new blued Old Army.
I know I shouldn't gloat and all, but I think a never fired Old Army for $275 is worth crowing about.
So what needs to be done to "dirty up" my listing in the roster?
What, maybe I gotta load this here Ruger and liight her off to start this dirtying up process....

Post by: 4Fingers on June 22, 2011, 05:21:42 pm
I just registered a few minutes ago.  I  scrolled through all the different sections and couldn't figure out where I should introduce myself and to start asking questions but then I noticed the "RAT" section and this seems like the appropriate starting point.

I registered after Googling for "single action revolver forums" because I'm interesed in getting a gun or two in .45 Colt and have questions.  Since I still have the stainless Ruger GP100 .357 Magnum I bought 15 or 20 years ago and the stainless
Ruger P97 .45 Automatic I bought about 10 years ago I figure I belong here.  I should quickly add that of the many different guns I've handled and fired and purchased over the years .....Rugers are still the best bang for the buck in my biased and humble opinion.

Anyway, having recently gotten interested in the cowboy action shooting sport, I 've spent the past 4 or 5 weeks looking at .45 Colt clones from Uberti /Cimarron and USAF and EAA, etc. and decided I wanted a nickel plated .45 Colt in 5.5 inch.  I don't know why but I wasn't really looking at Ruger until it suddenly hit me today that Rugers don't cost any more than these other clones and fact is Rugers are way ahead of these others in quality and safety features.....features that I've been accustomed to in my current Rugers.

So, now I'm pretty certain I want a "New Vaquero" in stainless, 5.5 inch, .45 Colt.  It wasn't until today I stumbled across a comparison between the new and old Vaquero and that sold me.  The polished stainless looks so much like nickel that I'm really happy with it's look too.

This long winded intro brings me to a question.  I see on the Ruger Web site that they have a SASS version of the guns I want.  The only difference is that these are sold in pairs for nearly 1600 bucks, they have the SASS logo on the grips and the hammers aren't as tall as on the regular gun.  They look very similar to Bisley hammers which I've never been fond of.  Is there any particular advantage to having this lower stumpy looking hammer?

Thanks,

VR

PS  I could get two non SASS versions which are identical in every way accept for the stumpy hammers and the goofy looking SASS logos for 5 or 6 hundred less......seems crazy to me to pay 600 more for funny looking hammers....what am I missing?

Post by: Jack N Water on June 22, 2011, 07:25:15 pm
Firstly, the SASS logo is not goofy and since you have obviously not shot a SASS Ruger with a Montado Hammer you should not pass judgement on these fine cowboy guns. Secondly Bisley's are an easy shootin Six if you have short thumbs or shoot one handed.
And, pairs of Ruger SASS Vaqueros don't sell for 1600 bucks anyway so you should expect to be in the 1000 range. I shoot Bisley's in 357 & 45 and single six Bird Heads in 32 but i have not found any other of my fellow cowboy's iron's to be sub standard or any of their grip logos to be goofy.

Well, thanks for the warm welcome.....I think.  I don't know who managed to hack my post and express that stupid opinion about the SASS logo being goofy.  Heck....that's absurd....it's obviously one of the finest looking logos I ever saw. 

I'm 63 years old and sometimes wonder if I'm going soft and senile.  At least I can thank God I don't have short thumbs or any other short parts.....like those people who need stumpy hammers on their shoot'n irons..... ;)

My OMV cost 500 used.  The fresh off the line NMV was only 450.  I chose the old one but that is because everyone has their own preference.  I have big hands so it fits like a glove for me.  That's me, some may prefer thinner grips and shorter hammers, that is them.  When you purchase an extension of your hand do what feels right. 

And welcome Mr. Fingers.  I really don't have an opinion on the logo but I do love Rugers.

The Ruger SASS Six-shooters are a package of desirable features coveted by many SASS shooters developed over the history of SASS some of which you have noticed.  I have opined somewheres 'round here that I'm a fan of this package if it was in the OLD MODEL 'cause the NM feels like a pocket pistol in my hands and it aint right for me....   :D

Long Hunter has a great deal on the SASS pair with all the work'ns done on 'em and they're in 45LC now!  I'll recheck his sight and post here in modification fur ya!

Guess I need to make it official and sign up with all of you like-minded compadres.  Much as I love all good single actions, it is plain that Ruger makes the toughest guns out there.  All American is the icing on the cake!  I shoot the new fangled smokeless occasionally but my heart is covered in soot.  I humbly apply to be a RAT and a Dirty RAT at that.

Lookin' forward to it.

Many thanks!

Please accept my application as a RAT and a Dirty Rat  ;D. I received my 4 5/8 NV last week for my birthday. After shooting it, it has replaced my Uberti cattleman for around the farm carry. It shoots slightly low POA at 25 yards, but it's just a couple of inches. The center is right on. I like being able to carry 6 instead of 5. Although I love and shoot BP in most of my guns, including this one, I am keeping one snake load as the first up and 5 Hornady .45 leverevolution rounds next. It shoots really good with the Hornadys and I let my young nephew use them in a 92 carbine during deer season, so I have every confidence it will handle anything I will encounter here, four or two legs. (We just had a police shootout yesterday down the road of a meth lab these city druggies are bringing out here so I'm using it for self defense as well as pleasure while farming. Glock 22 when I go to town.)

Post by: cpt dan blodgett on April 05, 2012, 11:00:50 am
Do not think I ever tried to sign up.
Probably am an Old RAT.  First ruger is a single 6 purchased summer of 71 after I returned home from Vietnam.  Wanted a 44 mag but the only centerfire ruger in the store up in the bitterroot was a 30 carbine
2 SBH one 10 inch on Bisley
3 44maq vaqueros
2 NMV 45
a Second Single six
MKII Tgt 22
10/22
No.1-b 25-06

Having shot a few BP rounds from the NMVs maybe really a Dirty Old Rat
Somehow was never bitten with the bug to purchase one of the ruger center fire auto pistols.  Perhaps my penchant for Wathers, Lugers and 1911s colored my judgement.
A model 77 and one of thier shotguns would pretty well complete the battery
I may need a stainless OMV 44 7.5 to give me a pair of each, blued and stainless.

Now that I have the BP shotgun loading thing firgured out may start shooting some FC

But I didn't see your name on the RATS Roll of Honor.

That is where I thought I have seen you!!  I get over to the Good Guys when I can.  I'm only 5 miles away, but being tied to Tri County I more often than not don't make it.  Know most of the Cowboys who are on the board there.

Hello the Camp,
     I reckon I ought to request permission to come aboard.
     I've been shooting a Blackhawk in 45LC since 1977 when I was 14.  I am getting a Vaquero Bisley in the same caliber, so am hoping I might be allowed to brief.

If shooten Rugers makes me a RAT. What does shooten Colts make me?  Anyhow I'm from West Virginia where the Sun Shines in the sky and the Moon Shines in the basement. I love shooting Single Actions of all Brands.

  I enjoy shooting .22 RF, .38 special, .357 magnum, 44/40, .44 special, .44 magnum, and .45 colt. My favorite, hard to say, but I'm leaning towards the 44/40 the older I become.
 

 Shoot Safe, have Fun, try to take a new to shooting person with you when ever you can.

I am a 'Relatively' new Ruger Shooter as I bought my First Used Ruger Revolver in late November 2015.

It is a New Model .22 CAL. Convertible Single Six that I had custom converted to a Center Fire Single Eight in .25ACP, and other Cartridges, with a 10-5/8" long barrel.

The end of June 2016 my Second Cylinder was finished by my gunsmith in ".250ALRM"; a .25ACP diameters "wildcat" of 1.250" case length.  I also have some other 'Mildcats' I can shoot through this revolver now:
"6.35x26mmSR Stewart" of 1.020 through 1.056" case length, I currently am trimming to 1.055" in my experiments.
This is the same Case length and overall length as a .22WMR cartridge and also has the name ".25 Magnum Auto" and ".25MACP".
"6.35x28.6mmSR Stewart" of 1.125" case length.  This is the Same length as the old .25 Stevens Rim Fire Cartridge.
"6.35x32mmSR Stewart" of 1.250" case length.  the same case length as the ".250ALRM" but made from a 5.7x28mm Case.
All the 'mm' case designations are Made from Resized and trimmed 5.7x28mm FN once fired Brass.
All the "inch" case designation sar e made form Resized and trimmed .22 Hornet Brass (mostly new PPU brass).

So far I have loaded 50 grain FMJ and 63 grain Lead bullets ahead of BE-86, Power Pistol, Bullseye, Or Unique.
weakest fired to date is Factory Prvi Partisan 50 grain FMJ .25ACP, and the Strongest so far is 3.0 grains of BE-86 behind ^3 Grain Lead in a .25ACP case.

Left side of my Ruger .25ACP Single Eight, with Cylinder installed.

Right side of my Ruger .25ACP Single Eight with cylinder removed and Loaded with cartridges.

(http://i839.photobucket.com/albums/zz316/chevwilliam/My%20Ruger%2025%20Cal%20Revolver/Ruger2025Cal20CF20Conv20Mod20Cyl20Marking_original_zpsg2dggaqx.jpg)
Close up of the Modified 8-shot cylinder. It is still marked as '22-MAG' though.

Eventual Plans is to have four separate Cylinders, one for each basic cartridge designation/case length.

I have not yet come up with a method to remark the cylinders in their actual Cartridges without the chance of distortion.
I also have a Stevens "Favorite" converted to Center fire and use a ".25 Stevens" barrel to 'plink' with .25ACP rounds.
I can fire 6.35x28.6mmSR Stewart in it if I down load to about Trans sonic Velocities (about 1124fps).

Chev. William

Thank you for Making me a Member of the R.A.T.S.

I hope to request a 'Badge' when I receive my Social Security Retirement payment at
the End of the month, provided I don't have a a Huge Utility Bill like I did last month.

Retirement is not Highly Remunerative it seems. No "work calls" from My Union for a
Month or more now, and I had to decline the last 'work call" s I am not up to hauling
4/0 Power Cable up ladders to the Permanent Overhead of Stages any more.
Moving it around on the stage floor is still OK.

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.
