Talking single six!

Took my dad to the range for fathers day. When he got to my house he told me that he had brought my uncles revolver he got after he passed. Little did i know it was a Ruger single six from the seventies...in near mint condition at that!(i almost didnt wanna shoot it) needless to say i did and i loved it. This was my first exp. with a single action revolver. What a sweet piece....one day itll be all mine. Cant wait to shoot it again. We put 180 rounds through it today

Sounds like a great fathers day. I too have a single six (80's vintage) and I like the little pistol. It's been mostly used as a snake gun, but I do shoot it at the range on occasion.

A Single Six was my first ever handgun and, as such, it will forever hold a place in my heart. I can't think of a better introduction to the world of SA revolvers.

Took my son to the range yesterday for fathers day. Shot the Single Six, 50th anv. Blackhawk .357 with mello and hot rounds, .45 Colt convertable Balckahwk and the GP100. Had bottom feeders alround us and they were giving me the old crusty look of "what in the hell is that" Well after a long volly of shooting the Siz I loaded up some screamers in the .357. From what my son said the looks on their faces was priceless. Seeing the fire ball and hearing the report and seeing me place six shots in a nice 1-1/2" group at 10 yards was great.

I love my single actions and as I told my son, I need more! He's not complaining as some day they will be his. We are both looking for another Single Six (his first) this summer. Out of all of my guns I find the Single Six to be the most fun.

While I enjoy my big bores, you hit it dead on.... The Single Six is just plain fun. You can burn a lot of ammo through it for less money and get lots of practice with it. For target shooting, hip shooting, steel shooting, etc..... Just plain fun!!!! And useful too on varmints and small game.... I have one, my youngest son has one. My wife has a Bearcat. My oldest though likes his semi-autos (pistol and rifle ... Army training)...... Thinks my SAs are 'old fashion' .... So be it .

I got the Single Six in the middle of the image below brand new back in 1957 when I was a teenager. I've picked up the flatgate and the lightweight Single Sixes since then.



Can't have too many Single Sixes
