Think we all do this occasionaly, least i do. I am about the simplist individual i know (no smart ass comments here) Meaning my tastes are simple, i own one watch, wear the same pants till the wife gets tired of them and i find a new pair haning in the closet, one of those, "my owners manuel is a one pager" things. Now when it comes to guns, and especially handguns thats a diffrent matter. In the past 40 years ive gone thru a bunch of them, some i hold on to, most i sell/trade. Sometimes I surprise myself and hold on to a gun i expected to shoot a couple of times and trade, case in point is a little freedom arms .22 that weighs less than (as runaway would say) my reft rut and im at the certified "usta have a set" age. My oddest is a Ruger Blackhawk in 30 carbine. I stll remember taking off from work in Tucson and getting this baby, must have been bout 84 or so. To top it off this was when stainless was just getting big and YEP i got it in stainless. Then to tame the recoil i put Hogue rubber grips on it, hog legs just dont look good in stainless and black. Had to buy a shoulder holster (they only came with 71/2" bbl) I never got it to group tight, it took out what little hearing i had left, was fun shooting at night as it sorta looked like a 16" battle ship with all the powder burning outside the bbl.. The thing was everybody would look at it and say.. uh.. why did ya buy it. Your turn..
a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
