Long time reader, finally decided to join. I uses this forum a bunch in researching one of my favorite rifles, and see you guys have a few threads dedicated to it. For whatever reason, I always wanted a Ruger No 1. In researching, I decided I'd try to get in the most stout chambering offered from the factory so my search for a 458 Lott began. While researching the Lott and such, most of the results came from this forum. Anywho, while I hunted I came across a box of 19rds of 458 Lott at a gun show for about half price. Seller said he shot it once and said never again. I had that ammo for 2 years before finding the right rifle. In the meantime, I was pretty intimidated from hearing how unbearable it is to shoot, so was honestly pretty nervous to squeeze that trigger. It's stout for sure, but not nearly what I was expecting...and I fell in love. Been researching a 460 Weatherby so will probably create a thread for that quest, but there's my story and how I found yall!

Welcome to the site.
 
Welcome to AH adamsredlines! Nice to have you join us on the posting side.

Welcome aboard!
 
Welcome to you and your rifle. Nebraska is one of my favorite places to hunt
 
Hello adamsredlines,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

If you enjoy serious recoil, the Ruger #1 rifle lends itself quite well for conversion to .500 Nitro 3” and will also then be worth more than any Weatherby chambering in resale value.

When you get around to it, I invite you to have a look into the Khomas Safaris website.

Best Regards,
Velo Dog.
 
I'm kind of a fan of the 458 caliber stuff, at least for now. I could see myself with a hoard of No 1 rifles in the future though.
 
Welcome to AH!!
 
Welcome to AH, that’s a beautiful gun you have there. It always worth the wait.

I recently had operation for Agent Orange caused throat cancer and cannot talk so phone calls are out. I am interested, maybe more so after seeing the pics. No decision today, it's radiology and chemo day and sometimes that leaves me a bit worn down. I did notice the used rifle had only one reenforcing bolt in contrast to the NIB.

I'm interested. Maybe more so in the used as I want to have some work done on one and restocked. Would it be too much trouble to send some pics of both. Btw, [redacted].
