Time to pull out the 10 inch paper plates?

Got some extra workups this year.
Need to perforate a couple of paper plates @ 25 & 50 yards with the L-Frame S&W .44 Mag.
Need to perforate a couple of paper plates @ 100 & 200 yards Standing with the Ruger Alaskan.
What do Y'all do for work-ups prior to gun season?

But Thanks for pulling my leg.

I'm pretty sure you recall the bolt action Ruger M77 Hawkeye Alaskan Guide Gun? (300 Win Mag)

But the Hawkeye isn't what you bragged about and you got caught. The snub-nosed revolver is a Ruger Alaskan.

Perhaps you have jumped the gun?

Ruger Alaskan is also a Hawkeye rifle: should you search Rugers Website you shall get both results. https://www.ruger.com/search/ Go ahead, punch in nothing more than Alaskan. Double dog dare y'all.

But if you own a Ruger Alaskan Revolver, I'm game to taking a few whacks from the Creedmore Position at 200 yards. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/...ting-position/


Bye the way: Best part of belonging to this forum is that folks actually realize/or have witnessed that marksmen can hit 10 inch paper plates 10 times from the unsupported standing position at 200 yards with a rifle. God it's Great to rub elbows with folks that shot more than "Plastic Fantastics" . LOL

Plug "Ruger Aslaskan" into google and see what you come up with. Double dog dare you. It won't be a Hawkeye. And I've hit what I was shooting at with a Ruger Blackhawk slightly over that distance.



Granted I was about 60 years younger at the time.

Guess it's still True! Second Braggart always wins.

Must admit that I expected you to be a bit more magnanimous in victory.

That's some pretty strong wording for a bit of confusion between the Ruger Alaskan Rifle & Revolver?

It was being called a braggart that pissed me off. That Ruger Blackhawk is the reason I never pursued Colt SAAs.
