That might classify as a PPP. Perfect packing pistol! Congratulations!

That's the exact rig I'm looking for. I took a 3.75 Talo Vaquero Birdshead in trade in the meantime, but I'm still looking.

When I retire on January 30, 2021, (212 days, but who is counting...), we are re-locating from Eastern Washington to Alaska. Specifically, near, but not in Fairbanks. This is to be my trail gun. This, common sense, pepper spray, and my personal predilection for not being eaten. Currently I keep it loaded with 200 grain Speer Gold Dot .44 Special. Plenty for the two legged concerns around here.

Nice piece of dynamite you got there. Did Ruger customize the length, or is the 3 3/4 offered from standard production?

Nice looking SB. I like the unfluted cylinder. A great trail companion for sure.:)

This particular model is a Lipsey special. They (Lipsey) offer an identical version, albeit with the Bisley grip. Because the local gun shops shelves are near to stripped bare, I took what they had, and am happy with it.

A friend of mine was pulling his 44 mag from the holster and it fired before it cleared. Didn't explain what happened in much detail, because of the embarrassment I guess. I saw a pic of the wound he took before it was stitched up. It dug a trench down the side of his right leg that was gruesome. He's about 275 lbs with an extra dose of padding in his legs. He was lucky it missed bone.

Dear Lord, he was a lucky boy. No more speed draws I suppose.
