I'm not a Ruger collector but I have three and one on the way. I have a super Redhawk in 454 Casull, Two Super Blackhawks in 44 Mag one blue, the other SS.
I will soon acquire a Blackhawk in 30 Carbine in a trade.
I am looking for a Blackhawk Convertible in 38/357/9mm and another in 45LC/45ACP. Then I want a 22/22mag.

I just like the way they shoot and feel in my hand and when compared to other makes they feel more real.

With my very modest Ruger DA "shooter collection"... I like to head to the range in the morning with about 300 148 wadcutters and 150 240 hardcast and shoot till the ammo has depleted. My favorite way to unwind and relax .

Few collect Ruger revolvers. There are some fairly rare or hard to find models, but still few collect them purely to collect.

I personally have no interest in collecting anything that Ruger makes. Maybe in 20 years or so, there will be a lot of Ruger collectors. I'll concern myself about it then. I am not going to hold onto a Ruger revolver intentionally as a collector piece in hopes that I might make 30% in 10 years.
