Hmmmm....I've "collected" all of my guns over the preceding 50+ years, but I shoot 'em all, with one exception, that being a 1931 documented National Match 1903 Springfield....and even that has been fired once.
Rugers are wonderful guns, well designed for the work or play that they do, and my experience with their single actions has been excellent...they all shot well. All, absolutely all (over a baker's dozen with some I've probably forgotten in the count) would keep six shots under two inches in group size at 25 yds. Currently, I've been accumulating the flat tops, both the early ones and the most recent models...love 'em all and carry them as well. Collect? Yes, emphatically, but I shoot 'em as they were designed to do!
Our Flag is unfurled by the dying breath of our patriots in uniform. Cherish and honor it, defend what it stands for or get the hell out. Our Freedoms are not free, they've been paid for many times over.
