Went to the gun show at GRB today.  Saw only one SR1911, tagged at ... $899.  Whoa.  $100 over MSRP?  No wonder it was still sitting there today.

Still waiting for these to be more readily available.

Here's a look @ our late 1990's vintage Super Blackhawk from the "business end."  .44mag.  4.5 inch barrel, steel ejector housing and a trigger job by a gentleman that knows how.  After market Pach "decellorator" stocks help tame the beast.  If we had to reduce our collection to only one handgun (and we have no intention whatsoever of doing so), this would be the one:


Here's a somewhat unusual SBH--a stainless steel Bisley in .44 mag w/5.5" barrel.  This one from a 1000 piece run made for a major sporting goods store on the east coast (can't remember the name) back in the early 2K's.  This one has not been shot much.
 
These are not our only Ruger firearms.  We like Rugers.  A lot.  The Ruger company seems to build a terrific product for a very good price.  We don't know how they do it, but we are glad they do.

We trudge on.

The wife loves hers. It's her primary carry arm. When we first got the pistol it was a bit fussy about ammo. but after 250 rounds it feeds everything well. I can get fair groups at 10 yards with 115gr Gold Dots. If you have large hands you will want the pinky extension on the 10 round magazine.

Nice, I'm sort of on the fence on wether to purchase one or not... I've gotten a lot of mixed reviews especially on YouTube.

Count me in as a big Ruger fan.
Blackhawks... Security/Service/Speed 6's....P90's...P95DC's...new designs to improve the Mini-14's...all good.

But...why the new models when there was nothing wrong with the old ones?  For instance, SR-9's and MKIII .22's? 
Why Chinese air rifles w/ the Ruger name on them?  I guarantee it, open the door for the chinese and next you know you will be finding them supplying internal parts, etc. 
Why more plastic parts on the 10-22's?

Be careful Ruger, please!

Have a 10/22 for lots of years and never want to get anything else except another one.  Recently bought a SR22 and cant wait to get to the range.  Past Rugers are the ones that got away. :thumbsup1:

Anyone get one of those new Ruger SR45's yet?

I saw a target of a range trip with one on another forum. If I remember right, the original poster claimed it was shot at 25 yards. The target was impressive

Love that Speed-Six except for the excessive text on the barrel ;)

I know!  :facepalm: I am still looking for an older pre-warning model to match my pre-warning 2.75" Security Six:

They are 5 star speed loaders and they do make them for the SP101 as I have a set. Here's the link to the SP101 models:

5 Star Firearms Speed loaders for Ruger Sp101

I am a big fan of their products  :th_thicon_funny: The SP101 is on the lower right.
