Didn't want to encroach on Double AC Ranch's new RSBH thread, but it reminded me of dad.

My dad passed back in August and I was fortunate/blessed enough to receive his old model Ruger Super Blackhawk produced in 1963. We never had a great relationship and he wasn't a great father, but this is one of my most treasured possessions. Not because it's a gun, but because it was his and because of our family history connected to it.

Just thought I'd share a pic of this piece of art. slinger

Sorry to hear about the loss of your father. It's hard loosing a parent, sometimes even harder when the relationship wasn't the best. Glad you got the pistol. Nice when firearms, or anything really, are passed to those who appreciate and cherish it.

Sorry about your dad. Rugers are great firearms.

The guns that mean the most to me were passed down. It’s how it should be.

Beautiful gun. I'm glad you have it and love it - never lose it. Pass it on to another.

I lost my Dad the day after Christmas, buried him last week. We were fortunate to be very close. It's why I haven't been on and posting any these last few weeks. I've hunted with his old Sako Finnbear for the last many years as he had quit hunting years ago. I go hunting because of a passion he passed on to me for it. I'm going to try to squeeze in one final hunt this weekend before the season ends, will be thinking/reminiscing a lot about Dad if I do.

I have another Sako Finnbear that my Uncle brought back from Germany in 1969 too (he purchased and brought both back, Dad's in .270 and his in 30-06.) - the 30-06 belongs to my oldest son now as my Uncle passed in 2013, and Dad's will pass to my youngest when i'm too old (or dead) to hunt.

Earl

Really appreciate it, fellas. My favorite treasures are guns passed down to me by family members. As one of the only REAL gun guys in the family, I've been fortunate to receive some beauties. Thanks again, guys. salute
