    This thread is dedicated to the firearms produced by Sturm Ruger...please post a picture and share your thoughts on firearms designed and produced by Bill Ruger.

    Here's my Ruger Bisley Vaquero ( 2005 Old Model-Blackhawk frame ) chambered in .357 magnum, constructed of a bright finish stainess steel with faux ivory Bisley shooting grips. Even with the magnum full power loads, she is a pleasure to shoot. I sold two other Rugers ( a Security Six and a P89DC...both of which came into my possession for two hundred a piece ) to buy this single action beauty for $450 back in 2005.

    Yeah it really is. The ease of concealment is amazing. It is smaller than my hand and my hands are not that big. I thought it was going to be hard to handle according to other people's accounts but it was not really that bad. It is more comfortable with the grip extension that is on the mag in the picture. My other mag does not have it, and it still isn't too bad with the recoil.

    I don't have any pics to post but I own two. The P95 and SR22P. By the end of the year I hope to have a new P345!

    Good guns and affordable.

    I also don't have pics to post, yet. On weekends I compete in SASS Cowboy Action Shooting. My main match pistols are a pair of Ruger Vaquero Single Action Army (SSA) chambered in .357, chrome finish with rosewood Altamont grips.

    Just makes sense to have your rifle shooting the same caliber as your six guns !!

    Do you also have a period shotgun for CAS events...?!

    My 1st pistol was a Ruger P94 (if I recall correctly) chambered in .40 cal.. Then I bought a P345 as a EDC pistol.. Gave the P345, an IWB holster & 6 mags to my dad.. Got my Bersa .380 outta the trade..

    Shooter, I bought a S&W M500 .50 cal with 4" barrel right before I got out of the Marines.. Since Cali still dont believe in hi~cap mags, I went for BIG.. The concussion was so loud that it broke the ear piece to my cell phone..
