Another new guy/old Ruger owner from North Carolina

Just wanted to drop in and say hi, seems like a pretty good community here.

I am gray haired, old, and umm a RUGER owner! Had an FFL until they got so stupid about things it weren't funny, did a lot of checkering and building 1911s, had a bunch of nice old Colts until the Harley Davidson hobby came along and ate all of them up, and you thought them things only ran on pump gas huh?

Did a good bit of reloading but don't even own a single stage press now, boy I shoulda kept ALL that stuff.. Kicking......

These days I'm down to just the pre-warning M77 .308 (that I traded a 1941 Colt GI 1911A1 for many many many years ago) a 7 1/2" SBH in .44 Magnum that between them have put several freezers full of meat on my table, a stainless OM Vaquero in .45 Colt that I came here for some advice on, and a few other essential pieces, Mossberg pump 12ga and a .50 White muzzle loader, and of course the boyhood .22 that I took squirrels with as a kid.

Do I need an AR? Unless they make one that starts with a 4, probably not.

Favorite pistol shot to date, taking aim on a whitetail from a treestand with a blued 4 5/8" Vaquero in .45 Colt on my birthday, and seeing two of them go down from one 300gr XTP.

Funniest firearms incident: A cop in Norfolk, VA once asked me why I carried a .45, and I answered him saying "Because they don't make a .50" The look on his face.... Priceless!
