I reckon I'm a RAT too!  Got me a "Rat Pack"... 4 and counting.  Matched pair in stainless, with 7.5 inch tubes, with stag horn grips, 5.5 inch Bisley, blue/cc with white pearl grips and a stainless Birds Head with 3.75 inch tube with ebony wood grips.  All Vaqueros, all 45s.  So many Vaqueros... so little time.

Wow, it's been a busy evening, here at the RATS Hole!

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!!

Welcome to the RATS Hole, folks!

:D

I always thought 32's were mouse guns. ::)  As some gun writer said years ago when you do around 1250 fps with a 120 gr bullet it's a Mighty Mouse gun. ;D ;D ;D  I've had it since 89, 5 1/2" SSM.  Uses most of a case full of H110 and a Lyman 311316 with a funny little copper piece on the base.  Tain't quit "Old West" but I can fill a pot with it. ;D  And it makes me feel more secure than a Teddy Bear when I sleep in my soogun. ;D

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!!

Two new pards wander up to the entrance to the RATS Hole, seeking admittance. Both are loyal Ruger shooters. Come on in, Dusty Wheeler, with number 140, and Trooper Steve, an RO whom I love to make grin on the shooting line, with 141! Welcome!

Well, guess who picked up a stainless Vaquero in .45 and a Special edition MKII.
The MKII is a Salute to the NRA's Foundation's William B. Ruger Endowment.

So, we just can't hide the fact that we are RATS from now on.

Four-Eyed Buck wanders around a bit, then finds his way to the RATS Hole and stumbles through, bearing the number 144!

Welcome, Buck!

SIGH!!
[/color][/size]
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.

Your Pard,
Ol 'Satch (that wants ta be a RAT)

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 am a RUGER's fan.   BIG fan.  I actually have a RUGER car plate, RUGER keychain, shirt, etc.

I not only think they are tough little guns but I believe RUGER really supports our sport.

I'm a RAT~!  :)

My apologies, Siesta, for the oversight, and to Bob Ed Pain, for I had to change his number to 147. :(

It's good to see you, Reelfoot Regulator? What Rugers do you shoot? Let us know and I'll put you on the list!

Knuckles, it's great that you have all the Ruger's accessories, but do you have any of their firearms? Speak up, tell us!!
