    My answer to this timeless dilemma?

    Of course!

    Clean it after getting it all smoked up! ;)

    Thanks to a Ruger Forum member I was able to acquire this 1968, 4 5/8" barrel Ruger.

    My very first pistol at age 17 was a 1967 model just like it. Sadly, it was later stolen, and I hadn't shot a Single Six for about 40 years until this afternoon.

    Gee, was that ever fun! After 100 rounds all that was left was a paper massacre. :)

    Wonderful old Ruger! That particular barrel length ain't exactly growing on trees.

    Doc,

    I have an old model Single-Six from the early 1960s and a 357 Blackhawk flattop with a 3 digit serial number. I like them better than the modern versions.

    You've got it right. Shoot. Smile. Clean. Repeat (as often as possible). :D

    Very nice, especially with that barrel length. Even with all the gunshows I have been to, I have never seen one. And you've got the extra cylinder and box; looks like you have the prefect Trifecta there my friend. Thanks for sharing.
