    I guess I am a gun snob, I never was enamored with cowboy guns. I'll check them out the next time I am at Ace Sporting goods and see if they call my name.

    I've got a Blackhawk, Redhawk, Vaquero, and a Single Six
    I love me some Ruger Single action:D

    A single six is what my son really learned to shoot hand guns with. It forced him to slow down a bit and focus on aiming more

    I am a big fan of SA cowboy guns. I would love to have a Colt before I am done. Here is some of my Rugers.

    I do have three "cowboy" guns, one is a .22 High Standard Double-nine, one a .45 Colt Ruger Vaquero, and one a .45 Colt Uberti with Birds Head grip. Cowboy guns are not my favorites at all and I will probably never buy another one, but every collection should have at least one!

    My "old" Vaquero .44 Magnum is one of my favorite carry guns. Couldn't ask for a more accurate shooter. Carry round is .44 SPL. 240 gr. HP...SWEEEET!

    I am a fan of single action revolvers and have several, Ruger, Colt, Uberti, and several that have been customized. I also am very interested in the 327 Mag, have a 32H&R I like it a lot. Might have to get me one of these.

    A .32 caliber, nickel plated Colt Police Positive, was the pistol used in the movie "Death Wish". For a long time I wanted one, but I favor big slow bullets, and have never had one. I am also a fan of the SA Cowboy pistols, and own several. My favorite is a .44 Mag Black Hawk, 5", that resides in a western style holster. Stoked with reduced loads, 240 gr. XTP's, @ 1250fps.

    sooo pretty! although i like SA DA pistols + revolvers i am interested in the Ruger convertible for being able to shoot cheap 9mm rounds + would like a Ruger SP101 in 9mm, with real adjustable sights. not knowing how large any gunmaker is i am amazed at the variety of S+W compared to Ruger my preferred brand. i have contacted Ruger several times + if they read any forums they should know adding an adj rear sight to their 3" barreled 357 would sell. i guess i will have to get the S+W model 60-10. overall few 3" barreled revolvers have decent sight for older eyes!!
