    For the first six shots they are still a very viable protection tool.

    I do.

    Ruger Vaquero .45 long Colt



    Colt .45 Long Colt



    Ruger Bearcat .22 cal



    Colt New Frontier in .22



    I love Single Action guns.

    I've probably shot more .22 bullets through my .22's than all the other calibers combined.

    The succeeding six shots ain't too shabby, either!

    Have I been so long away?

    Seems I've stated my sentiments before hereabouts concerning that most elite of all firearms, the Single Action, here are a few Rugers:

    .45 Colts:


    And, .44 Magnums + one .44 Special:

    I just got this about a month ago. It's a old Blackhawk 3 screw (1972). All original from a good friend. Thanks Greg.



    I also have a .22 Ruger Single-Six. I got to get some pictures of it.

    I tried SASS for a short while. Had two Ruger New Vaqueros in .357. I liked them alot. A word to the wise however...if you are going Cowboy shootin' I hope you are a good reloader! Otherwise ammo $$$ calls for a second job! And make sure to get some good eye protection as there always seems to be some little lead slivers or shotgun BBs bouncing off those metal targets! OWWW!
    Good luck,
    Eli

    Thanks for the advise ELI.I know ammo for mine is probably even more expensive than what you were shooting.I have ordered two sets of bullet molds for my .45 Colt.Still have to get some more guns.I can see the initial start of it is very expensive.I'm just buying a little here and there.I have all the re-loading stuff,dies and such.My biggest problem is ,that I'm not a spring chicken anymore.I should at least look the part though.An old worn out cowboy.Did you get rid of your Vaqueros?I had a .22 Colt pistol that I sold for $25 .Paid $45 for it brand new in the box from an old Mom and Pop store here in the 60's.Sure would like to have a lot of the guns I have once owned and gotten rid of back.Of course ,when I was a kid,I also attached a many a valuable baseball cards to my bicycle spokes by clothes pins to make it sound like it had a motor.Who cared if it was a Mickey Mantel.Anyone else do that?

    Glad to hear you will be making your own ammo! Yes, the Rugers are long gone. I also used a 12 GA. Stoeger Coachgun (no hammers, double trigger was allowed) and a beautiful Henry Big Boy .357. They also are gone, but I miss the Henry. Cowpokes called it too heavy, not "authentic" enough, etc. But it was very dead on accurate and when it came to ringing those long range gongs, that pretty much made my day! I am an old guy too (60+) and you will have to hop around a bunch if where you're headed is anything like where I was shooting. Not to worry though, plenty of company in the Senior set, shooting for fun, not competition. Nice people all around. Good luck!
    Eli
