Quite possibly the first gun I ever shot as a kid, almost 30 years ago. Inherited it from my father a few years back.

Ruger Bearcat .22lr serial number 442**

Hiya Riv

Yes the 29 is nickel plated.

Yes it's the TRR8. It weighs as much as a K frame and that is why 38 recoil is negligible.

Here are some shots I took last week of my S&W Model 586-7 (.357 Magnum, L frame, 7 shot) with custom Elk stag grips. Accompanied by it's companion, the boker Red Deer stag handled hunting knife. This is my carry gear for up in the Sierra.







This one is my S&W Model 16 no dash (.32 S&W Long, 6" barrel) sporting factory Rosewood target grips. With box and cleaning kit.

These are terrible pics, but the guns are interesting.

My dad was good friends with a gunsmith in Sacramento named Bill Davis. Bill was famous for his PPC revolvers, and built several for my dad.

The two guns here were hybrids created by Bill. Both are basically Colt barrels mated to Ruger frames. The quality on these is phenomenl, and at first glance, you almost don't know that these are a gunsmith's work.

The topmost gun is a Ruger Security-Six frame mated to a 4" Colt Python barrel. Davis called this a Cougar.

The bottom gun is a Ruger Speed-Six frame mated with a 3" Colt King Cobra barrel. He called it the Rattler.

Both have a fantastic feel, and trigger work that is simply indescribable.

is that.... a 3" model 64? or maybe a PC model (looks like a port there on the front)? Whatever it is I like it.

Actually that barrel started out as a 6" long, 1" diameter rifled premium blank. The gunsmith that built it for me is Mark Kearns, who worked at Bill Davis years ago. Mark said they used to build their top grade PPC guns with this barrel. He cut it to 5", slabbed sided it, built the underlug, gave it a recessed crown and mounted a factory S&W front sight that he milled off of an old barrel. He did an awesome job on it, his workmanship is superb! Mark installed the barrel and crane lock, but didn't have time to do the action job. So, off to Craig Maraviov in Woodland for some end shake removal and a competition tune. The action SUPER smooth and light. Just picked it up today so I haven't had a chance to shoot it. Should be a super controllable tack driver!

The 3" is a 65 that started out as a 4" gun. Craig had the 3" barrel laying around from his days at Davis Company so I had him install it. He did this powerport before S&W came out with theirs (shoulda patented it!). He installed an S&W auto front sight, rounded the butt, smoothed and polished the trigger and gave it a fine bead blast. It's a very neat little gun. Here are some photos of the gun before the work, as well as the barrel porting:

Here is my little jewel to complement my Puma 92 SS .44Mag "Trapper" (coming in a few days!)

This Taurus Tracker .44 Magnum sports a Simply Rugged pancake holster, speed loader pouch and "most versatile" pouch. Not pictured is the Simply Rugged belt, another fine piece of firearm hardware. I can hardly wait to get my tomahawk blade cover and a holster for my Single Six (I will post pics of that later!)

S&W 625 aka the Jerry M. clone. Installed Jerry's complete spring set up and one of his grips. Gold bead front sight and smoothed the sides of the trigger.

S&W 686 Plus. Trigger job, lightend springs, machined for moon clips, J.M. grip, still want to change out both sights. Had the barrel milled to lighten it up.

These started out as Navy Arms New Model Russians, but I had to have them be closer to the American configuration. Smithing was carried out in So Cal at Walker47.
