Just bought it today!



Izznt she purty?
She's a stainless birdshead Ruger Vaquero in Colt .45 with Black Micarta grips and a 4 5/8" barrel.

I actually went tin to buy a S&W .38 snubby, but this was only $30 more!



Unfortunately, I cant pick it up for another 7 biznis days because I've been too lazy to get my CWP.

I 've never liked the looks of the Birdhead gripped Single actions before but that Ruger may have changed my mind, it is a good looking gun!!! The black Micarta goes great with the stainless.

D.B, are you going to keep the micarta grips or are you going to get some custom ones?

D.B., have you fired it yet? Wondering what you think about the characteristics of the birds' head grip.

Yesterday I saw a pic of a Ruger with dark dark jade grips on it. It looked sharp!

Love it, accurate as a Rolex.

The birdshead grip fits my hand like a glove, but a friend with a larger hand didnt care for it because his pinky was sort of hanging in space.
Pogo, Im thinkin' Ill keep the micarta grips on, unless they become damaged, because its sort of a limited edition type of thing, plus, the shiny black on shiny stainless is one of the attractive features that led me to buy it.
Another aspect I appreciate is it's uniqueness of design. Its not like a standard grip, which everyone-n-their-uncle has. Its got per-son-ality.

I just picked up a box of 300Gr. Bear Load to run through 'er, and see how she handles those hotter loads. (seperate thread on this to come ...now)
