    About ten years ago or so, went shooting with my mom and some others. Guy on the range had a Ruger 44 mag and let us shoot it. She laughed and asked me what you’ve never shot one? Ugh no! She had been with a guy from work and he let her shoot his. Ever since then she’s lusted after one.

    She’s a revolver gal, has a SP101 and a J Frame. I’ve had some extra money saved up, I’ve had my eye on some stuff for me but that’s irrelevant since she’s not getting any younger.

    I finally pulled the trigger earlier tonight. My buddy is a FFL so we’re going to play a joke on her saying I bought her a gun which is true.

    He’s had a crappy heritage rough rider 22 or whatever that’s been sitting on the desk and nobody will buy. Gonna show her that while she fills out the form, when it’s all said and done bust out the 44 mag.

    Ordered her a Ruger Redhawk 5.5 inch! Damn this should be good!

    Realizing what your mom is all about has to be a good thing.

    Very good guns. I sold one (though I thought it was a 6.5" barrel) to a friend to plow the $ back into a .454 Casull. Don't think he ever shot it even years later. Offered to buy it back but he wasn't interested. Don

    The two we found were the 5.5 and 7.5 now, only the 5.5 was in stock through his supplier. I figured the 5.5 would be better balanced, hell it still weighs about 50 ounces. Should be perfect for her needs.

    Thanks! The wood looks good but I’ve got a feeling some Hogues or something similar will have to go on it.

    Buying her the gun was easy. Keeping her in ammo is not.

    BTW, nice gesture.
