    I certainly love blue and wood just as I love old knives, but there is a place in my shack for both, no problem.

    Lovely knife and I never met a Ruger I didn't like. I have never owned an O/U. Hmmmm... maybe I should.

    let me encourage you to get one then! I’d love to add a matching 20ga so I can have a pair of them.

    Get the 28, it has true 28 sized frame. Feels like carrying a spear :)

    I think it’s a nice shotgun, hasn’t been made in quite a few years. I used it for quail, shells were too expensive for doves :)

    @tongueriver
    Still researching this one but what I do know is it's a Smith & Wesson commonly called a "pre 10". It's chambered for the .38 S&W center fire cartridge. The barrel has been shortened to 4" and re-blued.
    Waiting on Smith for additional info but based on the serial number it is probably pre WW2.

    Bought the Malanika drop point hunter off the Exchange here the other day and another member got the puuko. I couldn't find the motivation to buy both; I wish I had done so. Shown here with a pic of Dad back in the '30s with his 94. Hard times. This hopper fed us for three days. Takes a good knife to get through those exoskeletons, especially the legs (not much meat there anyway). grasshopper.jpg m2.jpg

    OK, where are the gals with their guns and knives? Here is an item, February 1946 American Rifleman magazine. February back cover (Large).jpg

    Forgot the knife. Rudy Ruana, 1940s square cut. Daddy brought it home to show his sweetheart. She probably rolled her eyes. "Show me the bacon." rh1.jpg

    The deputies that teach her CCW class were after her to make this holster. They had something similar in kydex but wanted it in the horsehide she uses for her IWB holsters:

    Cool design and great build.
    But as a guy, it always makes me uncomfortable to carry a gun pointed there. :eek:

    If i
    If it’s a Victory Model, it would have been parkerized and have a lanyard swivel. If the hole has been plugged, that’s a clue. .38-200, .38 S&W with a 200 grain bullet was the correct load.

    You'll like this Cal, I have that Model 75 in my collection, early one 1941 with the mailbox front sight, mine has a vintage 6x Lyman Junior Targetspot set up for squirrel hunting, have the original Redfield rear micrometer sight if I want to switch it back to a target rifle. Knife is XX era Case large hunter.
    The 75 was one of the better position target rifles of the time, also used by the military as a trainer WW2. When I was shooting Junior NRA competition in the late 60's we had an armory full of 75's and 52's.

    I've got a holster (haven't used it in many years, as I prefer belt strong side, ankle, or pocket, depending on the firearm and situation) called "Thunderwear", which I used to carry a .357 Magnum J-frame. :eek::p
