I have heard the adage of Buy Low Sell High, as quoted by J. Paul Getty as his formula for making $. When it comes to an occasional Ruger purchase it seems I sometimes do just the opposite. I do keep an eye out for an occasional used Ruger or Winchester and though I may be looking for something specific, I try and keep an open mind and consider all models and calibers. Today while burning a few extra Saturday minutes I checked over a local classified listing. Though I wasn't looking for a Ruger Blackhawk 45 long colt in stainless, 4 5/8" bbl I ended up with one. It included a hunter brand belt and triple K holster, 259 loaded cartridges, couple hundred empty brass... all for 5 franklins.... what made it really nice that price included a Winchester 94 trapper, angle eject in very nice shape in .45 long colt also. So for now the .357 Blackhawk 4 5/8 on my list will be forgotten... at least until I use up 259 long colt cartridges. One of the few times I believe I bought right.
