Okay, I'm gonna play the girl card here and admit that I know nothing about guns, other than the fact that she's a Ruger, .44 Magnum, and my father was always amused that he had his before Dirty Harry made it popular.

However, I will get into my hope chest to see if I can find out any other information from the box so that I can relay it.


Since it's a Ruger I'm gonna presume it must be a revolver. To the best of my memory I just don't recall ever seeing a Ruger automatic. I don't think they make 'em (any resident handgun experts please correct me if I'm wrong about that.) I think Ruger only makes revolvers (I'm referring, of course, to handguns only. I know they make rifles too.)

No matter what model, if it's a Ruger it must be good.

I used to own a Ruger semi-auto target pistol (.22).

I think she means her Dad was amused he had a .44 mag before it was made famous & popular before Dirty Harry.

In one movie, he had a .44 AutoMag.

When you go to gun shows, they have those nerdy, LARP guys who make medieval weapons. I saw this spiked ball on a stick that was about four feet long. I always thought that if I were a home invader and saw a guy running down the hallway, in his underwear swinging one of those around, it would be a hell of a lot more terrifying that him sneaking around with a pistol.

Ruger makes a wide variety of firearms.

I own several Ruger semi-automatic pistols, .22rf-.45 ACP.

Ruger makes numerous models of rifles and shotguns as well.

"Of the total 2,288 makers of civilian firearms operating in the United States from 1986 to 2010, Ruger led the industry with 15.3 million firearms produced within the period.[13] Ruger was ranked the number one U.S. firearms manufacturer from 2008 to 2011. In 2011, Ruger manufactured 1,114,687 firearms, as their promotion, the "Million Gun Challenge to Benefit the NRA", played a significant role in the company maintaining its top U.S. manufacturer status.[14] The company has set a new goal of 2 million firearms produced per year.[15] From 2009 to 2012, Ruger was the top-seller of handguns.[16]" ----- https://en.wikipedia...,_Ruger_%26_Co.

The one on the right, only bigger. I didn't buy it, of course but the image cracked me up.

Yup. In fact, after making that ridiculous comment, my memory finally kicked in and I remembered that the first-ever Ruger offered for public sale was a semi-auto:

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/xy0r51S7NuY/hqdefault.jpg

I remembered because "Ruger" sounds so much like "Luger", and that pistol looks very much to me like the famous WWII Luger, so I often got the names mixed up.

:doh:

I bought a Ruger Standard in 1969 at the PX at Camp Pendleton in 1969 ($50). Looks just like your picture and, yes the profile looks much like the Luger (action is quite different).

Yup, completely unrelated operating systems, but to the untrained eye (which mine was back in those days) they look a lot alike.

Anybody remember the old Borchardt? The one Luger modified for their original design?

If Borchardt hadn't have been so stubborn and would have modified his design, collectors would be lusting after Borchardts instead of Lugers.

Both worked for DWM.

I love “manual action in .223 and up”. That’s kinda like “wide rear tires allowed, but you still get 87 horsepower in your Charger”.
