My sidearm f choice is a Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt. Here are my two favorite holsters for carrying:

Image

Both holsters are from Mike "Doc" Barranti. On the left is his Ranger Model which I use for Sunday and dress up occasions. On the right is the No.1 Shuck which is for everyday carry. Both suit me just fine.

The gun on the left was an alloy framed Blackhawk that I had fitted with the Super Blackhawk grip frame for awhile before going back to the Blackhawk grip. The one on the right was a Blackhawk that I converted to a Bisley after reading all the hype about the Bisleys.

There is just something about those stag grips and grip adapter that says "Ninteen Thirtyish!" Brings up "The Untuchables" or similar episodes!

Bob, did the Bisley grip live up to the hype?

As I’ve said before I’m fickle about what I carry. But for the last few weeks it has consistently been a .45 Colt Blackhawk.

I put all of the blame squarely on Bob. His images of good looking single actions and leather for same have caused me to emulate him.

I think my 1911’s are feeling unloved. I’ll have to make sure I take them to the range next time.

When I read the title, "I carry a Ruger", I was reminded... I use a Sneaky Pete for my LC9 while riding my motorcycle. A while back, a fellow rider asked me what the computer was that I was keeping with me so close. I told him it was a Ruger <<<<<<>>>>>>> blank look resulted.

Well dern,.... since open carry is sort of kind of sometimes legal here in S.C. as of yesterday.... I may have to look at my Ruger revolvers .... but none of them are as pretty as y'alls.

I think of my lc9s as my everyday carry, but often lately I just throw my S&W 642, in a Desantis pocket holster, into my pocket when leaving the house. Only 5 rounds of 38 but it makes me feel secure. I wish we had open carry, just to have the option.

The only Ruger I CCW is my my LCP .22. I do carry Ruger long guns in the woods quite a bit though.
