I have the exact same-------I love shooting it.





So do I (my son has it now) and I bought mine in 1978 as well. Paid $129 for it. That even looks like the holster I had.

A Ruger New Model Blackhawk .41 Magnum with a 6.5 inch barrel. Bought it new at the Kaiserslautern Rod & Gun Club in 1989 when I was stationed in Germany. It is a great, accurate revolver.

I added a 5.5 inch Single Six Convertible around 2005. It is very accurate with both cylinders.

My first SA was my first handgun. A three screw Ruger Blackhawk 357 mag.. Six inch barrel. No conversion. Regretfully lost to the foolish trades of youth.

My first single action was a .44 Magnum.


A 5.5" Stainless Super Blackhawk.

I was 18. Carried it for a number of years.
Had it when I was in the Infantry.
Carried it when I worked in the Frank Church on outfitter and guide ranch.

This is the only pic I have of it,

The day i killed this scrawny buck I used it to pop the heads off a bunch of grouse while waiting for my dad to bring the truck around to get me and the deer. We were a couple hours from where we started that morning.



Sold the SBH years ago and bought a Model 29. No regrets, as I have always shot the M29s a little better. But that .44 was a good one.

Ruger Bisley 7-1/2 inch in .41 Magnum. Owned it a long time, then sold it, then bought another, which I also sold after finding a Freedom Arms Model 97 6 inch in .41 Magnum.

Although I lived in Wyoming when I got this, it reflects my urban heritage. I don't own a centerfire single action revolver
and probably never will unless it is a historical piece. I know, blasphemy.

The first was a Navy Arms Griswold & Gunnison like this-

and the second was a Ruger Single Six 22 with a 5 1/2 inch barrel.

https://www.gunauction.com/buy/14424242

I shot the snot out of both until I got my driver's license, a couple of years later.

Bought at the same time in 1983 a Ruger Blackhawk 357 Maximum and a Super Blackhawk 44mag. For shooting IHMSA, wish I still had the 357 maxi.

Love those. I bought one in the late 1980s, and still have it. It often rides along in a jacket pocket.

Colt SAA in .45 in 1979. Purchased in a pawn shop on Yadkin Rd outside FT Bragg. Also got a nice K22. Used my outprocessing check; I had just enough money for gas to get home. Bought several more guns from this pawn shop on another tour several years later.
