.44 Ruger carbine

2168 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Cuzzin Mitch
I just bought a .44 Ruger carbine NIB made in 1979. It has never been fired, outside the factory! I paid $500 for it, but now I can't shoot it because of collector value.

How did I come out on this deal? Any opinions?

I guess I'll buy a Deerfield to shoot.

:D Well cuzzin, it's my humble opinion that ya got a OK deal.Any less than 500 an you woulda got the
clean end o the stick, any more than 500 and ya woulda got the crappy end.
Trouble now though, like ya said, ya can't shoot her due to collectability factors.:(
Good idee bout gettin the Deerfield ta use as a shooter, but now ya are gonna have a cash outlay
of 900.00 er so between tha two jest so's ya kin shoot one of em.Jest ma personal views on sech things, but I don't buy shootin irons ta look at,
I buys'em ta shoot an enjoy and I takes good care of em so if'n when tha time comes ta trade er sell,I makes a little dinero er ah breaks even.
My advice is:hide one of em from the Mrs.and don't breath a word to her bout it.;)
Good luck cuzzin, congrats on tha Ruger carbine!
Later, yer ol cuzzin Mitch. :cool:
Cuz, the Mrs. is pissed! But I got a Deerfield fo' nar 'round $300. Ain't that sweet music! So I's thinks I's come out mo' better on this deal!
:D Hey thar cuzzin Panhandler.
So cares if the Mrs. is pissed? Least ways you cuz.
Ya got 2 new shootin irons ta cushion tha blows from tha brow beatins ya been a takin.
Sounds like a fair ta middlin trade off ta me cuz.
Yea cuz, ya got a good deal on yer Deerfield.that should help take tha sting offin tha hen peckin ya been a gettin. Later cuz, Mitch:cool:
