I stopped at the display in Tulsa and read what I could, I needed to get closer. It was awesome and well done. Nice examples and excellent presentation.KWend54, those are some very nice guns.
I and many others that display with ROCS display our Rugers not to just have someone walk by, look for a bit and say "those are some pretty nice guns". I set up my display to have someone walk by, look at it AND look at the title of the display and then stop and start asking questions. That is what our purpose is - to educate people about the guns being shown, their history, and the history of Sturm, Ruger & Co.
This is what I displayed at Tulsa this year. On the left is the discription of the DA boxes and their timeline of use. In the center (Baby Yoda is guarding it ) is a pristine 1956 Type 1 4 5/8" Flat Top Blackhawk .357 Mag with the LOA and other background info.

I had a lot of people stop to ask about the EVOLUTION of Rugers Blackhawks and the Security Sixes and GP-100's. This is what we want, people to ask about our Rugers.
Ron and many of the other Rugerites displaying at most of the shows are personal friends and great people. I don't have anything rare or particularly special except to me but I have been welcomed into their world with open arms.I stopped at the display in Tulsa and read what I could, I needed to get closer.
