Competition Ruger

Something a little different. One of the revolvers that are used at Friendship In. at the Nationals.

Not exactly a run-of-the-mill Old Army is it?

There is a New in the box Old Army brass grip frame on GB for &799.00. Might be a collector, but seems out of line to me.

Yes, Tommorrow is our Gun Show at the club. One of the members JR had a
bunch of new Rugers in the box for 400 blue and stainless for 450. Ask me if
I wanted one, I said no. Gun show up at the airport tommorrow also.

Guess I will have to drag my butt out in the cold and come out to see what is what.

I bought another Old Army stainless at the Blue Springs Show last Sunday from Junior Barber for $400.00. Talked to Ft. Osage President as I was leaving the show. Correct me if wrong, Ray Miller, ?

What is the start time?

No Ray, is a past one. Starts early 8:00. With the weather like it is, I will
wait until next month.

That is early. I won't make it then, especially considering the weather.

Wish I had a picture but I saw a competition ROA that was converted to a smaller caliber, .36 I believe, using a barrel from a .357 revolver and shooting .360 roundballs out of a sleeved down cylinder.
Also had a target trigger job and lightened hammer.

The same guy Lewis that did my Remmy to 36 also does Rugers. Bet a dime
to a donut he did it.
