"If love were oil, I'd be a couple of quarts low. " Lewis Grizzard

I've always felt that with with my Ruger firearms, outside of the 10/22. Ruger semiautos, revolvers, and rifles just don't seem to get much love.

Maybe we can change that. Show us your Ruger darlings.

Here's a Super Blackhawk in 44 mag.

A bunch of Rugers live here, this is just a sampling.

First, a 77/22 in 22 LR. Barrel was shortened and rechambered by Randy at CPC, with a tightened and jeweled bolt and front sight turned down to a simple raised band. Shown here wearing a classic Weaver RV-9.

Next,a lightly breathed-on 10/22 built up from just a new action. Green Mountain fluted bull barrel with Bentz chamber, a bedded Sporter stock, a 2.5 lb trigger job by Brimstone, a headspaced and jeweled bolt, and a few other niceties.

My Single-Six is rather plain although with a 6.5" barrel it's quite the accurate shooter. Instead, here's my 22/45, with the Kingshouse grip mod to accept 1911 grips from VZ, and a Volquartsen trigger.

And here's my newest (to me) Ruger, a Blackhawk sow's ear to silk purse rework by Gary Reeder. It came to me as the world's homeliest 6-1/2" .41 magnum and left as a slicked-up, barbecue-worthy 4-3/4" .44 Special with neat-o Mongolian stag grips. My limited photography skills don't do it justice.

The Rugers are mostly priced at the every-shooter level of affordability, they're rugged, and they shoot. I just can't resist given most of them a little extra love to separate them from the rest.

I've got a few dozen Rugers of all sizes. Some of the more unique ones are shown here.
From left to right...

A Ruger M77 in .44 Magnum. I installed a Douglas 1/11 twist specifically to shoot subsonic 240-grain bullets. The factory barrel was to thin to thread, and it was not as accurate.

A Ruger M77 in 7.62x 39. I fabricated the barrel from a blank, using a .308 barrel with a 1/8 twist specifically to stabilize subsonic 220-grain bullets. It'll shoot any military surplus 7.62x 39 as well as hand-loaded bullets. It's one of the most accurate rifles I have. The muzzle brake is mostly used as a thread protector, but I went ahead and drilled it out to mitigate recoil when I so shoot the supers through it. It works well.

A Ruger American in .300 Blackout. It's an accurate rifle, installed on it is a rather short but effective 9mm can that I made for it. It's quiet.

Next up is the Ruger 10/22 outfitted with an Airrow barrel. It shoots an arrow about 450 FPS using a No. 6 .22 blank.
It'll hit a Skoal can at 100 yards if you know where to hold. The first two arrows I shot were launched into the woods, never to be seen again. Its pretty wicked, accurate and you can barely see the arrows for the first 50 yards or so.

I have more but they are typical. Most are threaded for silencers. I have a dozen or so Ruger pistols, MK1,2,3 and a 4.

Funny as it is, I'm not really a fan of Rugers. They work great, I just never really warmed up to them.

First firearm I ever purchased was a Ruger Super Single Six Convertible with the 5" barrel. Bought that gun new in April, 1968 for $78 and wish I still had it. It was followed by a .357 Magnum Blackhawk with, I believe, a 6 1/2" barrel in late 1968. Then came my New Model Super Blackhawk in 1974. That one, of course, had the 7 1/2" barrel and was chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge. Currently my two Ruger revolvers are a 1976 Security Six in stainless steel with a 4" barrel and a 1984, or is it a 1985, a stainless steel Redhawk with a 5 1/2" barrel. All of these were and are fine guns.
