See Rod, you saved a bunch of $$ on gas to be able to spend it on more Rugers! (I told ya keeping it under 65 mph will save gas!)
You didn't show any pics of any new toys you took home,,,???
It sounds like a great trip. I have one coming up soon and I'll be posting some pics as well!

NOT ONE NEW TOY.....just visiting friends that happen to share a common interest....sure saw LOTS of GREAT RUGERS......see ya RR.

The micro bus really takes me back too.

Is that green velvet box a factory engraved single six? The only one I've ever seen was sold for $8,000.00. Dealer told me it sold so fast he thought he priced it too low.

I have a number of nice guns in my collection too. My whole collection might be worth 2 or 3 at those prices though.

Hey JCCV, I do believe that is an RSSE.....just making sure that you know these are NOT MY GUNS.....I was just VISITING them :D :D :D The funniest thing the owner said was he just doesn't go to many gun shows anymore as there are not many guns better....only numbers 1, 2, and 3 :shock: :shock: :shock: I guess he is RIGHT.......see ya RR.

Just as I caught the Ruger bug I was in Pingree aka middle of nowhere North Dakota hunting. I drove right past that farm several times. Never knowing a fine collection of Rugers was down the road. Damn would have loved to have seen that. i think I need to plan another trip.

Hey Mike, next time you are in the neighberhood stop in!!

Will do. I have yet another reason to visit your great state. Hunting fishing and now Rugers. I have wanted to get out for a couple years now. But hunting has been too good close to home and I have not had the freezer space for another buffalo.
