    They are all great looking and I imagine shoot as good as they look.

    They all shoot well. The SS was my "frog huntin" gun years ago and was deadly on em. Had to file sights down some on Vaquero. Supposed to be antique "ivory" grips.....my meager attempt at a John Wayne Colt.

    If they were around when he was John Wayne probably would have had a Ruger as well.

    One of my favorites is the Ruger Speed-Six with a 23/4" barrel. The gun is a perfect balance for me and very accurate shooting .357's.

    Love those, Baldy. Went to buy one over 20 years ago. They didn't have any so I got a SW M13 w/3" barrel. Friend had one and it sure shot good. You sure don't see any used ones around here!

    I typically don't like revolvers, but that is by far one of the most bada$$ looking revolvers I have ever seen...

    Thank you Gent's for the compliments. I have put a spurless hammer in it and some Tyler-T Grips with the hope of carrying it. I haven't been able to get to the range enough to practice with it yet. Here in about 2 weeks I hope to have that problem taken care of. This one was new when I got it about 6 months ago but not anymore. It was made about 1982.

    That's a Don Hume Holster. It works real good.

    Even w/ a bunch of autos & DA revolvers, ol Hoppy, Roy, Gene & of course the Duke made me a life long SA fan. I remember turning down a brand new nickel 45 Colt Peacemaker for $125 because it was too expensive. Bought a new Blackhawk for $90 instead. Oh well...

    Too bad the pictures are gone ... I'd like to see them.
