Old-School Guy

Recommended Posts

I am an old school guy beginning with my first handgun purchase in 1969 with a Ruger Super Single-Six which I still use regularly and still have the box and papers (the original grips are in the safe). As I said, I'm old.

Being old, I grew up with revolvers, particularly S&Ws and old model Rugers (pre-transfer bars), and the CZs were the first automatics that I owned that gave me satisfaction in shooting (along with Makarovs).

I still carry CZs with the occasional backup S&W Bodyguard from 1966 in my outer coat pocket and for yard work an old Mak of some flavor. Old habits die hard.

I’m with you brother. My grandfather saw to it that we knew about guns and gun safety at an early age. When polymer firearms came on the scene I resisted. My firearms had to be walnut stocked and blued metal. I didn’t own an AR or Glock for many years. After a little time in Uncle Sam’s Boy Scouts, I had to have one. I still favor my Sigs over my Glocks.
