I wish I could, but I don't have a way to do it. I don't have my own PC, I use one at work (like now), and am much limited as to what I can do with it.
I'd carry a Vaquero or Blackhawk all the time, but I live in South Carolina, and hardly ever have a justification to wear a jacket or coat, and the Rugers are hard to conceal under a shirt. So I carry a Para Warthog or Stoegar Cougar most of the time.

The rig goes back to the 30's, or 40's. I had to make the belt larger, so to cover the stitch holes I had a pouch added that comes in handy. The spurs have ranch hand made rowels and were made in the late 1890's, or early 1900's. Using Ten-X bp ammo I regularly hit targets out to 80 yards. At 130 years old it's in better shape than I'm in.


Must say I do love those grips. Nice piece. I'm looking for one of that vintage to go with my new 1886 Winchester I just picked up.
