I had a super Blackhawk in stainless, 71/2' barrel, 44 mag I wish I still had. Traded it off . Also had a p90 I sure miss and hope to one day replace, as well as a Mini 14.

I'm hanging on to what I have now though. My son in law will be getting my Blackhawk, and my grandson will get my single six when the time comes to pass things along.

I'm not in the habit of gettin rid of Rugers, other than as gifts to family, but I can think of a few that I missed buying along the way. One in particular was a NO 1 in .357 mag.
Special run I guess, never did see another and could'nt find it in any of the old catalogs.

I have since adopted this attitude as well. Not only with my Rugers, but with all my guns. I'll buy guns, but I don't sell'em.

My attitude as well. However there was a time when I had to let go 3 flat tops. 357 cal. One of them the Ross variation. Wish I had them back.

When the Viet Nam war was over, and my brother came home, he brought with him a S&W K22, which he let me shoot. I was 17 years old and thought that was the finest pistol I'd ever shot, and it was, 'cause it was the only pistol I'd ever shot much. When he got tired of me using it all the time, with him, my uncle and my dad's cousin all being accomplished pistoleros, I decided to buy my own handgun. Well, with my brothers help, and recommendation, I bought an H&R 999. Now you might think that it was a devious thing to do, to match a young pistol shooter with a rather poor target weapon against my brothers K22 and the other two having High Standard autos, but I held my own with them, but could never beat them. I actually thought it was because they had more experience. Well, a few months passed and I got tired of the crappy trigger and sights of the H&R, and, on the sly, traded the 999 for a brand new Ruger Single Six convertable. You should have seen them laugh, as they informed me that the "compromise" bore diameter could never allow me to keep up with their top notch shooting. Well, in short, young eyes and a really good shooting RSS allowed me to literally beat the pants off all three of them, to the point of breaking them of the habit of shooting for money. My dad's cousin was a notorious gambler on tough shots and with that SS, I took many a pocketful of coins off him, and paid for the ammo I shot. Even my brother who was a pretty good shot with the K22 had to really pay attention when shooting with me, I could see .22 bullet holes clearly at 25 yards, and taught myself how to do a trigger job on the Ruger, so it was tuned to perfection and shot very well.
All these years later, and I can no longer see the .22 bullet holes out that far, so I shoot a .45 colt, makes it much easier to see,
The Ruger was the second handgun I ever owned, the 999 being the first, and it's long gone, sold when in need of money, but I have another stainless SS, with a Power Custom half cock hammer and trigger, that is as good a shooter, (but I'm not anymore) and feels just like that old gun. Those were good days, with a gun shop or two in almost every little town and plenty of places to shoot, it was a kids dream, and I enjoyed it all I could. I shot rifles as soon as I could stand up and hold one, and then my dad died, when I was fourteen, and never got around to shooting a pistol til I was 17, but I made up for time fast when I did.

Ale-8(1) will become famous soon enough
My wonderful, accurate, dependable 150-prefix 4" Security Six. Bought it brand-new as the first one in my small hometown. Traded it for something else. By the time I realized I'd made a mistake, someone else owned it. The later model I replaced it with just wasn't the same. Last gun I ever got rid of.

A few years before that, I had pulled the same stunt with my beloved T512 bull-barrel pistol. I later replaced it with a similar model that pretty much satisfies the requirements but isn't quite as nice.

I don't regret selling any, but I had a Securiety Six 6" blue stolen back in the late '70s I'd like to have back. I think I paid $170, or so for that gun.

Yeah my stomach still churns when I think about it. I sold a Single Six with adjustable sights and mag cylinder. It was an awsome shooter. Also a M77 in 300 win mag with iron sights. Gosh I miss them

When I was building my house, and trying to feed a new family, I sold a lot of guns. Two were Rugers. One was a 180 series Mini which was the first one I replaced with a 580, so I was better off. The the other was a Mark I Target with a 5 1/2" bull barrel on it. I miss that one a LOT. Now that my kids are shooting, a new one is on the short list.

A Ruger 77 tang safety that I had built in 416 Taylor. Stock had been custom shaped to fit me. It would shoot 350 and 400's to same poi, both less than 1 1/4 inch at a hundred yards. Needed money. Gosh, I loved that gun.
