New Vaquero Sheriff 44

Hey All,
I've been bragging on every other forum in the universe, so might as well show it here too! (forgive me if you have seen these pics elsewhere..)

Dang, I want one! If anybody here knows how to wring cash out of a rock I need to be in on the secret so I can afford one of these AND a Lyman GPR!
Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it

Nice! Since you put it here in BP forum.... Your going to now have to Load 'er up with some smokey BP rounds. Lets see some smoke! I have to do that with my original Vaquero every now and then to remind me what it 'used' to be like!
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.

Beautiful! Have you shot it yet? I recently bought a consecutive pair of SS 4 5/8"ers, THEN decided I needed an identical backup (Cowboy Action shooting), so found a third one at Thunderstick in Tucson The first pair are GREAT shooters, but I haven't been able to step out the door with #3 yet. Black powder, or smokeless, they both shoot fantastic.

Pretty nice Vaquero

Sorry . . . but I think it is so butt ugly that the only thing you should do is box it up and send it to me so I can "dispose" of it for you.

You have a really nice shooting iron there! Congrats on it! I've got a NV in 357 and I love it - a great gun. I bought it when I decided to try out the new fangled cartridge guns after shooting BP for so many years. Mine shoots great . . I just hope them new fangled cartridges catch on. Enjoy! It sure is a "looker"!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
