Etch my name on the wall, if you would please!

I love my Vaquero! I'll be picking up another in 2 weeks.  Shooting .38 and 375 at present, but want to get a blued pair in .45 as well!

Love my Rugers!

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!

Butte Bob:

You and Big Bear Lowe are IN!   I haven't had time to get on the computer every day to answer each RATS personally.  But I should be home from Afghanistan in 6 months.  I'll keep up better then, I reckon.

Welcome to the RATS outfit.

I just bought a New Vaquero in 45LC and will be picking it up in 10 days (California).  Then I have to wait 30 days from today before I can buy another handgun.  Doesn't matter to California that I already have a whole bunch of handguns, oh well.  ::)   By the way in addition fo the Vaquero I have:  two 10/22s and a MarkIII Hunter in non CAS guns.

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.)

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
