    There's something great about having a brace of .44 old model super blackhawks in your hands.............

    How about calling them the Sucky Model Vaquero?? I had two...BLEAH :bleh: is the nicest thing I can say about 'em...

    Kinda funny tho...bring them up to any gunsmith and watch their expression...fun mixture of disgust and
    "Oh Gawd, not another Vaquero problem..."

    Are you referring to the Vaquero, that's been in use since 1993, or the New Vaquero, that's been in use since 2005?

    'Cause the only difference between a Vaquero and a New Model Blackhawk is the sights. I have absolutely no experience with "New Vaquero", but am quite familiar with New Model Blackhawks. While I don't like them (and that's strictly a personal opinion) there's nothing wrong with them.

    I just bought my first revolver today. Ruger blackhawk in 327 fed. Before anyone asks why I got a odd caliber, and not a 357, my aunt ended her own life with a 357, so I won't touch one to honor her memory. Shot it today and absolutely love it. After owning 10 pistols, I wonder why did I never get a revolver?:confused: Hopefully I can get a collection to rival the rest of you:)[​IMG]

    I have to put my two cent's in about single action revolver's, I love them, they are great shooting and lot's of fun. I have the single shot Ruger .30 carbine, that and my M1 carbine go great at the range, same bullet, can't beat that. I also have four .44 cap and ball pistol's and two single shot Pirate pistol's, one is cap, the other is flint, God you should see all that smoke. It's a wonder they could see who they were shooting at in the good old day's. I also have one cap and ball .50 cal rifle. But not to worry, I'll not give up my Titan .25, my little Spitfire.

    Oh, by the way, those cap & ball's are all Remington's, can't afford the real old west shooter's, but I won't tell if you don't tell.

    They say in cowboy shooting if your shooting colt or clones buy 4 of them, if your shooting Ruger you only need a pair.

    Been using this pair 7 or 8 years now (not matched). Without trips to the doctor.

    I have a 3rd Generation Colt Single Action Army in .357 Magnum. It is the sweetest shooting SA I have ever shot. Nothing feels like a Colt SAA.

    The single six I bought new in 1976. Still works as good as new. I bought the 44 mag in case I run into a grizzly bear but they don't seem have to many in the Chicago area.
