I shoot with the Good Guys Posse north of Winnebego, tho I think most of them come down from Bristol. I was just at your fine range as a guest last month and it is a really nice range. I will try to get down there and look you up.

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.

I am the proud owner of several Ruger's. But my NV in 45 Colt are my favorites. I have joined a local Cowboy Club and have been practicing, but not competed yet. I need to go and shoot with them soon, hopefully by then I have a better shooting times.

Yep, Cinco! 
Get all of the trigger time you can! Wear those Ruger out!  Actually, that is almost impossible!  ;)
You'll find the cowboy shooters are a great bunch to help you with the shooting techniques and shooting safety.

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 have a pair of New Model Blackhawks in .357 Magnum and a P-90 and a P-95 as well.  The P models alternate as my daily carry pistols and the NMB's are broken out every time I head to the desert ranges for some fun.

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.


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).

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Well, that is interesting.   :o

I like wildcatting too.  Ruger SA revolvers are great platforms to build from.

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.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Look at the badge thread to find the badge order form.
It's usually the first or second one on the RATS forum. 
I sent you a PM and an email also.
