My first Colt SAA in 45

My favorite revolver was my first Colt SAA, in 45 Colt, the year was 1970, I was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station in California, and I hunted Jack Rabbits with it! This was a second generation Colt!

I was a lot thinner, younger, and sunburned in those days!

LMAO Wild Bill! You look dangerous as hell in that photo and I mean that as a compliment.

Mine is just an old workhorse Vaquero in 45 Colt. It's had a Power free-spin pawl added, a Borchardt steel ejector housing, a little trigger work by yours truly and its sights filed and hammered until it prints 255's right on top of them at 50 yards. It'll have a home here for as long as I can thumb a hammer.

My favorite revolver

The 45 Colt is a great round to reload and it goes well with the RedHawk.

It would be really hard to pick a favorite but maybe it would be my four inch Model 15. Good shooter and the K-frames aren't too big or too small. They're just right.

I have a couple Rugers that are real nice, but my favorite revolver is this small frame .357.

Here's my .44 Bulldog.

I think it's the coolest thing since sliced bread.


With old-style wood grips.


With Pachmayr Compacs.


Straight from the range.

Also I can turn it back into THIS ONE

Skidder, you've got me drooling over that 6" security six. I was all ready to buy one on gunbroker last month when my car broke down...

Lowercase that bulldog looks pretty cool to!
