    I finally got a new Ruger Blackhawk Lipsey's Exclusive .44 Special. I always wanted a Colt New Frontier 4 3/4" .44 Special or a custom converted Old Model Blackhawk .357 made into a .44 Special the way Skeeter Skelton said they should be. But I could never afford either.

    Finally Ruger came out with this limited edition .44 Special Blackhawk. The blue is very beautiful. The cylinder now indexes so that when it "clicks," the chamber is lined up perfectly to load. Most amazingly, Ruger put the ugly "WARNING: Before shooting gun, read instruction manual availabe free from...." on the bottom of the barrel. The left side of the barrel is now free of the terrible looking defacement!

    I put a set of Wolff hammer/trigger springs in it for $14.50 and the action is so smooth now. The trigger pull is two and a half pounds and crisp!

    I loaded some .430 bullets (240 and 205 grain) into some cases and I'm excited to see how well it shoots.

    This Ruger joins my other .44 Special (1962 Colt SAA and 1982 Colt SAA on the left, American Western Arms Peacekeepers on the right, Bob Munden custom Cimarron 1872 at the top and S&W 624 on the bottom):



    I think Skeeter would be very happy with Ruger's new .44 Special.





    As long as I'm here and I have my Photobucket page minimized, here's my 12 year old daughter shooting trap for the first time last week:



    She shot her great-grandfather's 1955 Browning Twelvette double automatic 12 gauge. Fourth generation shooting that shotgun!

    I was beaming with pride since she hit 15 out of 25 her first time out with a shotgun that she's never fired before and doesn't even fit her at all!

    Here's a couple pics my Kodak C875 captured with the shell ejecting and the clay busting!

    Steve -
    Those are great shots (pictures) of your daughter shooting that family heirloom. You must be very proud!
    Hell, I'm proud and I don't even know her!

    Thanks for sharing that piece of your family history

    Talking 1953 S&W K-22 Pre-17 w/ Heiser Holster

    The holster was originally marked with a hang tag that said it was for a Colt .45. It was actually made for a S&W K-22. Thanks to fellow Colt forum member Buckspen, I now have the correct gun for the holster! Thanks again.

    Some of my newest additions....

    c
    Savage Model 242 Series C .410 O/U. Not rare, but not an everyday. Made from 1977 - 1981. Savage continues to make their Model 24 combo gun - rifle upper, shotgun lower.


    Glock model 30SF sub-compact .45 acp - companion to my Glock 29; 10mm sub-compact


    Remington Made Browning A5 20 gauge. Although marked Browning, St. Louis, MO; this gun was made in New York in the fall of 1940. The 20 gauges began production with s/n C5000 in 1940; C meaning 20 gauge. Mine, s/n: C6xxx has a date code of 11/1940. I was forced to give a friend $200 for it!
