Ruger Single Six, only pistol I owned. Before that it was a Shore Patrol nightstick I bought at a surplus store, very authoritative ash wood, and a big Maglite.

Now it's a S&W 3" Chief, along with the old nightstick and the Maglite.

Before the Chief, there was a Webley .455, 1911 .45 or 9mm, and a Luger for a little while, and a S&W .44 Special.

Mine was a ruger single six loaded with .22 magnum with a regular .22LR cylinder packed full of ratshot next to it(I was 12 at the time).

Argentine P35, with Millett sights, Spegel grips, and a slightly bobbed hammer to lessen the bite to me flabby hand. Had to sell it when the money ran out, and regret it to this day.

First Nightstand Gun

While I was still in school, it was my grandfather's Smith & Wesson Military & Police .38 Spl Hand Ejector. When I was first married, it was a Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP & a Colt Series 70 Mark 4 in .45 ACP. Now it is what ever I carry that day, sort of a gun du jour.

S&W 39-2

It was my first handgun, and is still my nightstand gun, and it probably always will be since it has been 100% reliable for all these years.

For a long long time my "nightstand" gun was actualy a Remington 870. (in the nook behind the nightstand)

I had pistols but they where more from SD away from home. It was many years before I moved away from the shotgun and started keeping a CZ-75 in the nightstand.

A very beat-up 1911,,,

A very beat-up Ithaca 1911,,,
My Pop's brother carried it in WW-II and Korea.

I since found his long-lost daughter,,,
And returned the heirloom to her family.

That would be my first gun...Hum? I was 12 and had a Marlin .22 rifle. Forty Six years later, it's still in the bedroom. Rabbits dread it, squirrels fear it, and tin cans run away from it. Growing up on a rural farm, it's taken more than it's share of varmints and livestock predators. Even put some sausage in the freezer.
