Grips that have been around.....
In 1958 I bought a brand new Ruger Blackhawk .357 magnum, paying the princely sum of $5.00 extra to get walnut grips. Well, over the years, that grip frame came off, and frame and grips went into my parts box.
Then, couple of years ago, I got word of a man in New Jersey building up a Single Six for his daughter. Being for his daughter, I gave him the grips. He had some repair and refinishing work done on them by Scot Kolar, and put them on his daughter's gun.
Well, after awhile, she decided to go with fake stag grips, and replaced them. This man had the courtesy and consideration to return these grips to me.
I am often overwhelmed by the courtesies and consideration shown by those of this fraternity. I just hope someday I too, can be considered as kind as those.
