Ladies and Gents

My name is Curtis. I grew up hunting and fishing in South Mississippi and Louisiana and began hunting with my Father in the late 50s. I mainly hunt whitetails but also hunt small game and hogs. I hunt with bow and firearms. Although lever actions rifles are my preference I still admire and own various other rifles, shotguns, and handguns. I have a number of Rugers to include a 44 Redhawk, Mini Thirty, 44 Deerfield, and a M44 carbine. I have taken many deer with the M44 carbine and it is one of my all time favourite rifles. I also reload various rifle and pistol calibers. I look forward to learning from the knowledgeable folks on this forum.

Welcome to RugerTalk,

Thanks for joining,

I would imagine that you will be able to expand our knowledge also, with your experience.

Welcome, SC. I get the feeling you ain't going to learn anything from me. On the other hand, I know what Deerfield is, but what's an M44 carbine?

Welcome from Texas. :tiphat:
Those Ruger .44 rifles are said to be some fine shooters. I've seen em, never shot one.
Glad to have you here at R/T.

Welcome to R/T. Looking at your intro, it sounds like you can teach us just as much as you can learn from us. Looking forward to what you can tell us. BTW be aware, some of us may seem cranky, grumpy, or just plain crotchety, but it's all in good fun, especially if you jump in and mix it up with us...(for proof read some recent comments on just about any post here.) Don't be afraid to throw your .02 into the conversation.

Welcome to RT. " Cranky, grumpy, or just plain crotchety"? Who could you possibly be talking about?
Forget the .02, throw a dollars worth in the bucket.

Thanks

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. VT, the M44 is the first 44 carbine that Ruger came out with in the early 60s, I think they dropped it from production sometime in the 80s. The M44 has a tubular magazine much like a shotgun and has a receiver/action that resembles the 10/22.

Thanks, SC. I owned - and hunted with - a Ruger 44 carbine sometime in the 70s. Seems like it looked like a beefy 10/22. Don't remember a tubular magazine, but there's a lot of stuff I don't remember.

Gr8, I actually owned one. Bought it the first year Ruger came out with it and never shot it. Some years after I traded it to a guy I worked with for a Colt Anaconda in 45LC. I wish I would have kept the Ruger!

SC,
Welcome to our forum and glad you joined. The only cranky, grumpy or just plain crotchety is the one above ^. If there's going to be any complaining or grumping, it's gonna be him and Bob(VT). The rest of us are kind, restive, laid back and easy going folks. And they are leg pullers so pull up your trousers and hook on your suspenders, it will be just a short time and you will see what I mean.
