Ruger Vaq Birdshead 45ACP

Hey All,
Recently picked up this 45ACP revolver from Ruger.
Shoots POA from about 15yds and closer (groups tight from 25yds, but not yet ready to say where it is hitting with consistency )

It's been to the range twice now, got about 250 rounds through it, mostly 230gr FMJ with some 185gr defensive loads.

I've been carrying it in a holster from D.M. Bullard (Bodyguard model) and it carries super nice...just behind the hip, with aggressive forward cant angle.
