OP here again....
As far as 22 handguns...
model 63 sw, 617 SW 6 inch
ruger mark 2 SS 5.5 inch bull barrel and a government SS bull barrel mark 2
Ruger mark 4 5.5 inch bull barrel blue.
ruger single six 6.5 inch in SS
I know the 617 will come with me for sure. some of the ruger autos will go.
What handguns would you guys keep?
Not trying to sound 'Campfirish' but I'd keep them all and if there are some that you never shoot... in time you could let them go.
Handguns don't take up much space and these all shoot the same round (not like you have to have ammo or reloading components for several different rounds). You could fit them all into a very small suitcase.
If I really felt compelled to thin them down I'd definitely keep the Smith's, I'd probably also keep the Single-Six (for a change) though it is my least favorite of the three revolvers. I'd also keep one semi-auto for variety.
The Ruger Mark 4 will need a Volquartsen kit for the trigger, expensive but worth it. I have a couple, they are really easy to take apart and clean. If there is any chance that you will get into suppressors (and you should) I'd keep it.
The Mark 2's had a better trigger out of the box (even though they could use a little work), I had a Mark 2 Govt. that I used for Bullseye and foolishly sold it... I felt it was the best balanced Ruger Pistol for offhand shooting.
I wouldn't be in a hurry on these, but I'm probably the worst person to answer this question... as 22's are my favorite and I really enjoy 22 handguns. Rimfires are just enjoyable and fun to shoot without the drama or cost of centerfires.
I can probably be of more help when You want to know what to pick up to replace what you sold.
