Show us your Ruger Old Army(s)

Santa brought me this 1975 Ruger Old Army black powder revolver - one of the first 400 ever made in stainless steel. Can't wait to get it out to the range

Well here's my old dog from 1971. I paid 78.00 for it. It has gone from stolen
by ex wife in 1976 to missing for 17 years to getting it back from 3 states
away in 1991. I sleep with it under my pillow now!!!

Forgot, It is a .46 caliber. Yes 46 And I used it to win the Nationals
at Friendship in 1993. In Temporary Master Class.

Kwhi43@kc.rr.com - can you tell us more about that ROA? You had the caliber changed and the barrel shortened?
