Ruger's Auction To Benefit Youth Shooting Sports Alliance

Oh Boy, this is a special one!  This .357 Blackhawk was test fired at the Ruger Factory in June, 1973.  It is one of the very first New Model Ruger single action revolvers, and it has been waiting for you in Ruger's vault for almost forty years.  Ruger's description tells us that it was shipped to S. S. Kresge and returned.  Click Over to Ruger's GunBroker page to read the entire description, and place your bid by mid-day Wednesday of this week.   The bid as I post this is right at the current suggested retail price for a new blue Blackhawk, but the collector value makes it worth something more.  It's for a good cause, so bid until it feels good, and you will be OK whether it sits in your safe or rides on your hip.
