Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop - Gus McCrae

Ahhhh, another Open Top fan!

I shoot two '72 Open Tops in .38 special with 4 3/4" barrels. Maybe not the "fastest" guns in the SASS game, but I love 'em anyway. There is just something about the look of 'em.....I get lots of comments.

Good vid!

Great video and excellent shooting Duelist1954. I enjoyed it very much.

"This is my Remy and this is my Colt. Remy loads easy and topstrap strong, Colt balances better and never feels wrong. A repro black powder revolver gun, they smoke and shoot lead and give me much fun. I can't figure out which one I like better, they're both fine revolvers that fit in my leather".
"To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target".
