My older Rugers are:

1) a Blackhawk Combo .357/9mm with 6" barrel from March 1974.

2) a Super Blackhawk .44Mag with 6" barrel (picked it up the day Elvis Died, August 16,
1977). It was a birthday present to myself.


Newer Rugers:

1) Ruger American Pistol in 9mm purchased July 2016.
2) Ruger GP100 .357Mag with 6" barrel purchased in August of 2016, also a birthday
present to myself.

My oldest is a Winchester 1894 manufactured in 1909. My grandfather bought it new. I last shot it in 1969 while hunting deer with my brother. My youngest is a S&W 929 that I bought last year. I thought I had enough revolvers until two months ago when I ran across a 36-year old Blackhawk convertible in .45 ACP/.45LC. Couldn't resist.

I don't think I have anything made in this century,, maybe my Ruger P90?/
I have some old Enfields, a few Grendel's. And my favorite, when I go to a public range is my pair of Swiss K-31's. Homely old guns, long barrel and heavy, everyone chuckles, until I put three shots into the same hole, at any range. Offer $100 to anyone that can do better on their first three shots,....Made a few dollars, never lost a bet yet.

Sorry if this is off topic.

The oldest one I own is an April '41 M1. Then I have a 60's Remington 11-48, and an 80's M77. Other than that, they are all relatively new.

1903 Colt .32 Hammerless Pocket Pistol, Mfg. 1917.

Bought new by my step father's father.

Stevens Model 87D .22, pre 1948, best guess 1946.

Bought at Cabela's just to have. Same model I learned to shoot with.

Remington Model 1100 20 ga., I think Remington dated it to 1976. (Lost the email)

This was my Mother's dove hunting gun.

The rest are all more or less new:

Marlin Glenfield 30-30

Ruger Blackhawk .45 Convertible

Auto Ordnance 1911

Wife's Beretta .32 Tomcat

I have three guns older than me. One is a Rossi side by side .32 Rossi derringer from around 1900 that is not safe to shoot. I have a Colt 1908 Hammerless .25 Vest Pocket that was shipped in 1915 and a 5 1/2" Colt SAA .44-40 that was shipped in 1919. I shoot both of them and occasionally carry one of them.

I have several other Colts younger than me from the early 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. My oldest Ruger is a 10 1/2" Super Blackhawk .44 magnum from 1979. My youngest gun is a Colt series 70 1911 Level III custom shop that is a few weeks old.
