    Hi Jack, my name is Devyn and I'm highboy's grandson. Highboy doesn't really shoot that good. I had to teach him how to unload his guns when we were up shooting today. He ended up taking the whole gun apart whenever he wanted to reload. A couple smacks in the head from me got him set in the right path.:D

    That's the reason why he's bald. I have to hit him in the back of the head every now and then. Maybe next time I'll wear a metal glove. If it's an oven mitt, it'll make it feel softer for him.

    SA revolvers claim a corner of my heart. I used to have an Oglesby worked Vaquero in .45 Colt. Traded it for a smoker rig, wish I had it back..

    Thank you JLA. Soon I will have several 1911's to add to my collection. I have some double actions but they don't need cleaning. I love all of them.

    All Ruger? Hard to tell on some of the ones in the back. Angle's too sharp.

    Yes except the heritage .22 cal that is on the bottom right. Picked it up for 60 bucks for the grandkids first learning gun. However once they shoot the Rugers they don't want to shoot it any more. It's in great condition but IMO they are junk guns.

    Jim, you're killing me. I own 1 (one) SA revolver, and sadly in a .22 caliber.

    Man I need to go shopping!

    Nice collection there Highboy! I am another fan of the single action pistols, and love to shoot them. As you stated, they may not be as popular as the semi-auto's, but they will still do the job. Ya just can't stuff as many rounds in them!
