    Introduction Forum
    Thanks for the add, my names TommyGunns, I’m living in Fort Worth Texas, originally from Long Island New York. I just bought my 1st AR-15, it’s a Smith and Wesson M&P 15 sport II. I’m new to the AR world and am looking to learn as much as I can from my fellow members in this forum. Guns I own...

    Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    Hello all! I am serious about purchasing a .308 pistol. I haven't shot an AR10 pistol or St Victor but I've shot a G3 SBR. Suggestions on what to go with? AGAINST FORUM GIUDELINES Thanks!
  3. The Final Showdown.....

    .22-Rimfire Forum
    So my search for a new .22lr plinker has finally been narrowed down to the final two contenders. Either the Ruger Mark IV Target or the Browning Buckmark Hunter. Both have their pros and cons. The Ruger costs less, breaks down easier and comes with 2 mags. However, it requires more tweaking...
  4. Hello, from South Texas

    Introduction Forum
    Hello, one and all. I'm Steelburner (from my past welding hobby). I'm 82 years old, retired of course, from a major insurance company specializing in the US Military but available to all. I've been target shooting and on an occasional deer, turkey, or dove hunt since 1966. I have a Glock 17...
  5. Mini-30 Ranch Rifle upgrades

    Technical Questions & Information
    Looking to upgrade my 189 series Ranch Rifle with the side folding stock. I've already swapped out the folding sight with one that has windage and elevation adjustments. Want to switch from the blade front sight to the 3 prong style. Anything else I should consider that won't break the bank to...
  6. AIWB holster Ruger Security 9

    .22-Rimfire Forum
    Hey, I am newer to firearms and decided on getting a Ruger Security 9 for my conceal carry weapon. Only issue is I would like to appendix carry and it is hard to find holsters for that particular model. Any suggestions on a good company that I can find a holster for it? Doesn't have to be...
  7. Mini 14

    The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    Bought a Mini 14 SS in 5.56, first Mini I have had and the first in 5.56, have some questions. Reloading for a short while just reloaded my first bottleneck round a few weeks ago,22-250 with a 55 grain Hornady varmint bullet, seems to work well. The Mini has a 1:9 RH twist and I will be using...
  8. 1984 Ruger 45-70 GOVT Lever action rifle

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Dated from Ruger website like the others. Again, I don't have any background info to offer, but I will say that to my untrained eye the condition appears to be damn-near perfect! It really looks "out of box" new... perhaps it didn't get much use or was just taken care of extremely well. The...
  9. 1978 Ruger M77 .308 Bolt action rifle

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Another of dad's favored Rugers - dated '78 using SN reference at Ruger's website. The inventory notes on this guy indicate ".308 Winchester" and "26in Bull barrel/sights". The scope is marked "redfield 6x" and has serial J107102.
  10. 1972 Ruger M77 7mm Bolt action rifle

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    I dated this using the Ruger website. Dad's notes indicate the load as "7mm Remington Magnum", and the scope as "6X Redfield (Widefield) #G01235". Barrel is 26" tapered with no sights...
  11. 1982 Ruger .22 Mark II target pistol

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    This pistol was notorious in my house - Dad LOVED his Rugers, but HATED this pistol lol! I believe this was purchased new, and has never changed hands since. I can't recall exactly what his issue was with it, but I distinctly remember "waste of money" being uttered (accompanied by a torrent of...
  12. 1984 Ruger .357 "New Model" Blackhawk revolver

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Another of dad's beloved 357's, I'm sure this gun has had more than its fair share of use. He had so many similar models to this one it's hard for me to really tell them apart in order to provide any history. The hammer and surrounding area appear to be showing some signs of rust, but I...
  13. 1970 Ruger Blackhawk .357 revolver

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    While this gun is familiar, I truthfully couldn't tell you much about it other than it seems to have been well cared-for. There is some unusual wear (damage?) on the end of the barrel that I tried to illustrate - it looks more like friction wear than "scratching" per se, but it's very...
  14. SP101 with heavy bullets

    Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    I'm considering getting a Ruger SP101 with a four-inch barrel as a hiking gun. (I'm a little disabled now, but I hope to be healthy someday and resume hiking.) I'd want to load the gun with something that could discourage bears, mountain lions, or maybe even a wolf. At the very least, I'd want...
  15. Ruger Red Hawk (old vs. new)

    Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    I have been searching for some time for a Red Hawk 357Mag, 5.5 stainless . . . haven't we all? Recently my LGS acquired a 44Mag that is 5.5 stainless and very nice looking gun - circa 1983 according to the serial number. I had no idea that Ruger is still making these so I am now in decision...
  16. 1966 Ruger 44 carbine mannlicher stock

    Technical Questions & Information
    My Favorite brush gun (who am I kidding) my Favorite gun period, is missing the little metal piece at the end of the Stock/Barrel. Serial number is 107235 which according to Ruger its a 1966. Ruger does not have any parts for any of the older carbine's and I cant find this part anywhere. Can...
  17. Ruger 10/22 Takedown Question

    .22-Rimfire Forum
    I have a new 10/22 takedown. In firing it using the factory sights, I've discovered that my old eyes can't even see the front sight. it's so blurry that it's invisible. My obvious solution to said problem was to add a scope. I've since tried two different scopes, and both shoot consistently...
  18. CCW pistol

    Self Defense Tactics & Weapons
    Looking into getting a nice small inexpensive by not cheap ccw. Wanted to go with the ruger lcp but never had any experience with .380. I like how easily I could conceal the lcp but is that .380 gonna do damage if needed? So maybe the ruger lc9s or sccy cpx. Thoughts or experiences with any of...
