I think that and with the popularity of cowboy action shooting.

I know you said you dont reload, but 45 LC was my first cartridge to reload......pretty easy if you are looking for a reason to get started in reloading. .02

Allow me to clarify...

I hate my job, and I'm not too impressed with my home state. I'm seriously contemplating ranch work in Texas. It's honest, it's physical. And politically, I think Texas is going to be the center of alot of change shortly.

I've spent some time there, and fell in love with the place.

I know some may think that this is another "Benning Bit", but I'm looking into career opportunities there now.
BB, There is a ranch here in El Paso that a lot of military guys hang out at, some of them go to work for Mr Bowen when they get out of the Army.

I have VERY large hands (2XXL glove size) and had always shied away from "cowboy" pistols as their grips were just too small for my ham sized fists. When I was looking for a 1870's era revolver to shoot Black Powder cartridges, I first looked at the Rugers, but the grips were just not a good fit for me, and I could not get comfortable with the pistol. I got my hands on (literally) on a Uberti Model P, and while it is hard to see the difference it just fit my hand better and felt right. So I bought one. I really like this gun, and it shoots very well!

The Uberti Walker is also a fine piece and a real hoot to shoot, it is a real attention getter at the range.
