Matching Vaquero

Last year, I bought a stainless Ruger Vaquero. I have decided that I need another one. Anyway, I was wondering do you think I should get a second one (to match) or get a blued model (and have one of each)?

I'm leaning toward the matching one "just because" and they are about the same price anyway?

Get a blue one, then you can name them "Left" & "Right".

Here's a couple of blue Vaqueros with stag grips. I've had these two since they were first released in the 90s. Way over 10,000 rounds thru each.

Two matching pistols would look better in a 2 holster rig.

Whew! I'm glad you decided to go with a matching one! To have one in stainless and the other in blue . . . well . . it would be sort of like a woman getting a breast enhancement on just one side . . . .
