Didn't know whether to put it here, Rimfires, or Gallery. But any way:

Here's my newest Ruger.

Won it at a gun bash in mid March along with a Remington 870 and a bunch of other things in a special raffle.

It's the Lipsey's Exclusive Bearcat, 4.2" bbl

That puts me up to 8 SA's that I now own. 7 Rugers and a Colt (Frontier Scout with the Duotone finish)

Hi Ron,

Bravo! Can't think of a better way to get a Ruger!

Love Bearcats, wish more people would post on them. I have two of the Lipseys, one in stainless, one blued. Can decide which I like better.

Congratulations! Sounds like you really “cleaned up!”
I can’t think of a better way to acquire firearms than that.

What a neat gun! It's so well-proportioned you can't really tell how small it actually is!

Well, As of 10am this morning (that's when I go to the PO to get our mail), it's not my newest Ruger anymore. Lo and Behold, My ROCS version (special ROCS serial number) of the 60th Anniversary Super Blackhawk arrived. (Shown with the Silver Stag knife I got for being a displayer at the Tulsa show Nov 2018)

Image


I now have 9 Single Action handguns in the stable (8 Rugers and 1 Colt - a Frontier Scout .22 with the Duo-Tone finish). Shown with an almost mint 1956 Flatgate Single Six
