    gvw3, really, I think you are paranoid about the grizzlies. So, why don't you just send me that 44 cause I need it more.:D And, also, those other two revolvers are just anchor weights so I will take them too.

    Highboy you have to many now. If you run out of room in the gun case I can store some for you. I still have lots of room in mine.

    I was looking at your bench with the collection on it. Great collection.

    But I agree...you need a bigger bench so there's room for that thin mint ice cream :D:D:D

    Waiting...

    My only single action gun is my Remington NMA. Just got some .454 balls for it, shoots better than with the .451 balls I was shooting. Now just need to get my local store to stock them...

    This is an old thread that I remember well. I am still waiting for those Rugers Highboy was going to send me. :)

    I have a huge box ready to ship and the shipping date label says April 25, 2012. I opened the box and the bear grease that I used to grease all these revolvers went bad and the old revolvers are of no value. It pains me that I cannot send them.

    Also, I have been sitting here in my chair since April 24, 2012 waiting for your reply. My thin mint ran out long ago.

    Everybody should have a least one. My first gun a Ruger Blackhawk 30 carbine. A fire breathing Dragon. Still have her an she still shoots great, cosmetically challenged( because of the bubba home blue job my twenty something dumb @$$ self did). Got away from the S/A for many years but my interest has been revived. Recently added a Ruger Single Nine to the locker. One of my favorites.
    You younger fellas that have never shot one are missing out. A piece of our American gun history. Something about them, just plain fun!

    Now he'll get Thin Mint advertisements and royalties from ads on his YouBoob channel.

    For the record, I only own one revolver and it's a DA. But...I ONLY shoot it in single action. :)

    I have had two single Six revolvers and one Vaquero

    they have all been sold or traded in for other guns over the years.
    I like the idea of the SA but it just wasnt something that kept my interest

    My favorite handguns are SA. I have no idea why. They always were. Back when I was a young man in the 1970's the gun I wanted the most was a 357 Ruger Blackhawk. Whenever I go to Cabela's or my LGS I always end up looking at the SA rack.

    I have three single actions, one in .22 and two in .45 Colt. I don't shoot any of them often but I do have them.
