My favorite local gun shop had an old model Vaquero in the case this afternoon. From the serial number it is 2001 manufacture. It is 45 Colt, stainless, "Ivory" grips, and has a very short barrel (3-3/4", I believe). It is of course used, but in great condition (no noticeable wear). I'm between paydays, so I gave them some money to have them hold it till my employer pays my quarterly bonus in the middle of February. Or until the last paycheck of March, which is a bill free payday.

I traded for a used one a couple of months ago. I think it has a 4 3/4 inch barrel. I haven't even fired it yet. The same guy told me on Sunday that he has one with a bird's head grip and some kind of rifle in .45 Colt (model 18XX or something) that he wants to trade for a Garand. I wasn't really paying attention cause I will not trade off my Garand.

I know, but it's as close as you can get these days.

Just out of curiosity, do you hang around malls at Christmas and tell children that's not really Santa they had their picture taken with? :D

You ether love them of you don't. I love them. I would rather have one of these than any AR 15.

They are stock Ruger "ivory" grips. I don't think Ruger is using real ivory.
