    B-Day present from the family!

    My birthday was this past Saturday and on Friday, one of my sons asked me to go by the gunstore, I do business with and pick up some ammunition for him. Whe I arrived the owner instead stuck the federal papers for buying a gun in front of me and said, "Just fill them out and don't ask questions". I did and then my family came from the back to see me open a nicely wrapped box with this in it. A Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .44mag.


    I found the holster in a used holster box there and paid a whopping $5 for it. Fits just fine for field carry.
