Just about Got My Ruger Paid off

I am sending in another payment on my Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum 9.5" in a couple of days . I am on a fixed income & i have to make every penny bleed . I had one of these revolvers before the doctor put me out of work & while battling the SSA for my disability for seven years i had to sell it to help keep the lights on It broke my heart but my wife & kids came first . Now the kids are grown up & i will be able to keep this one for the rest of my life & then pass it on down to my son & then my grandson . I just owe $280 more on it & then the gentleman my wife is buying from is going to send it to our local gunshop & then its time to get in the loading room .I am waiting on 500 44 Mag brass i will be getting next month . Guys iam so excited about having another Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum its my favorite caliber in all hand guns

Good For You!

.44 Magnum is a great cartridge, my favorite is the Smith and Wesson Model 29. Great gun, smooth trigger. Glad you found a gun to make you happy!!

The gun you appreciate most, is the one that you could barely afford. I remember when I was 19 and bought my first Browning HP, took me 6 months of saving to pay for it. Enjoy your 44!

Sounds like it may be taking you awhile to pay for this one. Glad the selling individual is accomadating your situation. Hopefully the transfer will go though like a breeze at the FFL dealer.

Love the .44 and one of my next pistols will be the Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Magnum. I have my old single action Blackhawk in .44 and a Henry rifle in .44 I love shooting that Henry rifle.

I hear you brother.

My unfired Wiley Clapp GP-100 will remain unfired as I have to sell it
without even popping a cap.

A $1,600 vet bill demands it.

Just wish they could have saved my dog along the way.

Glad you have your SSA and hopefully another Ruger soon.

I got spoiled on the old mod. Super Blackhawk before there was any such thing as a new mod. Have 4 now and still haven't found anything that feels quite like them.

Hagar I feel yer pain....

I couldn't agree more.

So here we are. So there we are. I love my guns. My BF really gives me a lot of BS grief. I think he is just jealous when it comes to my guns. I think when I out shot him...thats when I fell from grace. I love my firearms. He gives me crap when we talk guns....I hate it but well it just comes down to this....HE is expendable....my guns are NOT! I am sure you all have the same Girlfriend prollems. You or your guns! Well, which is it?

Sorry to stir the pot....you know who you are.
