When I thought my fishing days were behind me I was into shooting and everything that comes with it: reloading, smelting lead, casting bullets, making bullet lube and a little gunsmithing on Rugers. Or a lot if you're ocd. The first snow made me stir crazy the other day so I picked up one I forgot about and finished putting it together. Originally it was 357 but now it's a 45 with parts from Colt and another brand of gun and I thought I'd take a pic to share. It's as much fun as remodeling a boat. This one is probably number 15 or so. With the help of a welder and a machinist I turned some into fixed sights like the original Colts and one or two have brass grip frames and also custom hammers. Some wear grips I made from burl walnut. I was so into it I took a gunsmithing class at an NRA campus but I only do this with my own guns. I got to be a fairly good shot back when my eyesight was better. These days I'm more pumped about getting back on the water.

Nice ruger, like single actions very much. It may have been the tv westerns years ago. Actually like a single action better than a double action.

Same here. I went through a Beretta phase, then 1911s, Colt DAs, S&Ws and wound up with mostly single actions.

The weather was nice today so I went to the range for the first time in 18 months. Almost stopped paying dues last year but glad I didn't. The gun at top did fine with my sissy loads but a large frame 45 has headspace issues which is an easy fix. It'll get a different grip frame too in case it ever needs to handle heavy loads. I forgot how much I liked to shoot and reload and tinker.

It’s a lot more fun to shoot with .44 special rounds, that’s for sure!

You better be wearing hearing protection also. If you fire this in the house and miss, you will both be deaf. If it hits its mark only you will be deaf.
