    Hi everyone, this is my first post. I am an avid hunter and outdoorsman and I am thinking of buying a handgun. It wiil be just for fun shooting and I think i've narrowed it down to 2 choices. Either the beretta stampede or the ruger vaquero. I love the cowboy styling and might get into cowboy shooting. I think i would get the short barrel version. I would appreciate any comments on these 2 guns to help me make an educated purchase. Also what caliber? colt .45 or .357 mag. i am into cheap bullets and not knock down power. I've head there is specific colt .45 bullets made for cowboy shooting, are they cheaper?
    thanks
    Brian

    Go with the 357 if cost is the deciding factor, because 38 ammo is less costly and runs fine thru a 357.

    I think you are talking about the 45 LC (Long Colt). I think you would be better off with a 357 just because it offers the most options.

    I don't have any first hand knowledge on the Beretta but I have fired the Ruger you mentioned. It's a very nice weapon.
