Long time reader first time posting

I Finally joined the forum !
My story is I started my Ruger acquisitions with a inherited super Blackhawk years ago. I started going to the range my wife and I enjoy the time together she is competitive. Next thing I know we start hitting gun shows .My wife seen at the show the 3" GP100 she had to have that's hers now ( she calls it Bad *** ) .well then I seen the Wiley clapp GP100 in stainless so I felt I needed that . She calls it little willie .
So the story continues and a Ruger Mini 14 Ranch Rifle 556 found its way into my safe.somewhere along the way I acquired a Ruger 22 single action six shot that was very nice but I seen a birds head grip Vaquero .45 honey gave me the go ahead So I traded up .
These things all happened over time .along the way theres been the wonder 9's and the .40's etc .but as I put away my stuff today out of the corner of my eye I see a new Ruger Redhawk sitting there I wonder how it got there oops I'm telling honey it's a investment. Rugers are my favorite.

Welcome to the forum. Like you, Rugers started accumulating in my safe without any conscious plan. My girlfriend (we've been married now almost 27yrs) bought me a 10/22. Then I found a .357 Blackhawk that needed a home. A Redhawk, a couple of Single Sixes, and another 10/22 came along in due time. A Super Blackhawk and a couple of Vaqueros have followed me home over the last few years. I'm good now, except those Ruger Precision Rifles in 6.5 Creedmore sure look cool. And maybe one of those pretty SR1911's would be nice...

Welcome to the forum from NC. Rugers are addictive, aren't they?

Welcome. I've been compelled to adopt one or two along the way.
"Followed me home" - nice. I'll have to remember that one.

Glad to have you on board. The Blackhawk was a nice inheritance and gotta love the SP 101. Hard to go wrong with a Ruger.
