    Sorry about the undefined acronym; I should know better than to do that.

    CAS = Cowboy Action Shooting. Folks get dressed-up in old-west-style clothing and shoot old-west-style guns at paper and steel targets while being timed.

    I've never tried it, but it's a fairly big deal in some areas; the town to the North of me seems to have a very active CAS group/community. Guns like the ones you pictured are popular choices, and I thought that might have been what drove your purchase. The guns are still cool, in any case. I've owned a few centerfire Ruger single-actions over the years, and even though I didn't have any specific intended use for them (like CAS), I kind of miss them. Congrats again on your purchase!

    I dont do it but a guy I work around does. He likes it a lot. he is the one I got these from.
    He picked up a set of the new ones that are lighter and colt size framed.
    I might try it some day.

    Great looking pair of pistols.

    I have just gotten into "CAS" and I have a SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) pair of Vaquero stainless in 357/38, consecutive serial numbers.
    They are a blast to shoot.

    You shoot go to YouTube and search for cowboy action shooting and see how much fun can be had with those single action irons.

    always wondered why a birdshead grip over the original
    what is the advantage or desire for such a grip?

    Sweet. I recently purchased a pair of blued Vaqueros with consecutive serial numbers in .44 SPL.

    Are the "Birds Head" grips easier or harder to shoot with? What was the idea behind that style? Just curious.

    Very nice duo you've got there. I have been looking for one myself but I can't seem to find one that's not chambered in .32 H&R. I just like the looks of the Birds Head grips.
