Ruger Vaquero

Hi All

This is my first posting. I recently got into Cowboy Action shooting with my wife and we share guns due to cost. I have a pair of New Ruger Vaqueros and relay like them.
At our last competition, I had a problem with one of them. One round did not get shot. This happened on three separte stages. My wife had no problem with them though, so I'm thinking it was me. Is there an issue with the cocking and rotation of the cylinder of these guns?? Am I cocking them too fast or trying to fire before they are cocked. I really did not understand and was wondering if anyone else had this problem.

Please let me know

You might be right, makes sense to start with what you are doing, especially when your wife had no FTFs. Recent thread discussed problem with transfer bar safety. Never had problem with my new and old Vaqueros but Ruger will stand by their guns.
