Default Ruger Bisley/Vaquero

I just traded for this beauty. I am going to use it for Deer hunting this fall and I am wanting to get into cowboy shoots. (as soon as I figure out how) I just ordered a set of elk antler handles from Eagle Grips they are out of Chicago ($225). I also ordered from a local tack man to make me a hip rig. He told me he would make me a rig for $175. He is "retired" from this but he told me he would make one last rig for me. Can't wait!
So now I need to acquire a hat and all the proper gear for the shoots. Sounds like it is going to turn out to be fun.

\They're great guns.. look at www.sass.net (sass-single action shooting society) your gonna need 2 pistol rig, rifle and shot gun. little tip for ya, go with a rifle and pistols of the same caliber. Personally I went for a 357 because its more economical when shooting matches come into play.

I am looking for 44 Marlin Rifle. If you know of one around holler at me. I will shoot 44 specials out of my handgun and rifle to save on ammo expense. Thanks Indyhunter for your input.

I've got one of those, it's the smoothest and most accurate handgun I've ever shot. Oddly enough, I got mine from a cowboy action shooter.

Mine is in .45 Colt, and I take it with me every deer season. I haven't got anything with it yet though. Yours is gonna look really good with those antler grips!

If your going to hunt with it and shoot heavy loads make sure the frame can handle it! There was an older vaquero that had thicker frame and said you could push 44 mag pressures from 45 Colt,but the new Vaquero's say "NEW" in front of the name...I would keep pressures low on them.
