Americans are fully aware that the Second Amendment has been under attack in this nation for decades, and gun manufacturers are doing all that they can to raise awareness of the problem.
Much of the conflict has arisen from the liberal left, who, for some unknown reason, have chosen the right to bear arms as some sort of Judas-like amendment of the Bill of Rights. Despite having explained the importance of the Second Amendment to them thousands of times over the course of the last 250 years, civilian firearms seem to be a sticking point in the leftist agenda still.
Of the attacks that the left has staged against firearms in America, none are quite as reprehensible as those aimed at discouraging our youth form engaging in gun-related activities. Whether it be hunting, gun collecting, or sport shooting, the liberals seem wholly incensed that young Americans would be interested in such a traditional pastime.
Ruger, on the other hand, understands the supreme importance of the youth contingent in the world of American firearms, and are donating a rare, 1989 Blackhawk revolver to Gunbroker.com for an auction benefiting Scholastic Action Shooting for our nation’s youngsters.
“Ruger is back in the giving spirit, donating a rare Blackhawk .32 H&R Magnum — 32/20 Winchester convertible revolver to benefit the Scholastic Action Shooting Program.
“Ruger says only 5,200 Blackhawk revolvers were built for Buckeye Sports Supply in the late 1980s and this revolver happens to be one of them. The Buckeye Sports Supply trademark is etched along the top strap of the gun.
“Featuring a blued finish matched with a 6 1/2-inch barrel and wood grip panels, the gun boasts a silver Ruger eagle medallion. Other notable features include a .32 H&R Magnum cylinder, .32-20 Winchester cylinder and adjustable rear sight with ramp front sight.”
The gun has been verified to have been test fired once in 1989, but is in otherwise pristine condition.
For your chance to win this single action beauty, you’ll need to head over to Gunbroker.com before Valentine’s Day to place a bid. As of this writing, the revolver has already fetched bids of over $850.
