    Very nice. ;)
    Picked mine up a while back. Also 45.
    5.5 barrel.
    Love it. :)
    But the price of ammo. :eek:
    Haven't bought any ammo. in years.
    Sticker shock. :eek:

    I like Blackhawk's a bunch, but my .44 Vaquero was my favorite. Although I really liked shooting my BH in .30 carbine. Lots of smoke and flame.

    Tell me about it. Thinking I need to pick up reloading supplies just to keep my .45 and .357 store up without having to lose an arm or a leg.

    great looking firearm.

    I bought a matching set of the CFDA Vaqueros last year.

    Never a problem.

    The Vacquero is the reason I started reloading, they were just so fun to shoot.


    Also..........I have this set of inserts that go in the cylinder that convert the caliber to .22......now I can shoot em all day for the price of one box.

    Not to answer for the OP, but it takes a damn good shot to hunt with a handgun alone, especially one with fixed sights. . . ?:confused:?

    Amoroque... thanks for the info! That is a damn fine idea :)

    And no, I don't plan on hunting with that beast. Though at times, it feels like it could take down an elephant.

    The Vaqueros are nice guns. I've got the original in 44-40 and a New Vaquero in .357 mag. Both are very well made. Since this photo the New V has also gotten wood grips.

    I used mine to shoot SASS matches - so it's had lots of shots through it.

    Mine is in .45 long colt and as you said - ammo is a killer nowadays.

    Congratulations on you new gun - it's very nice.

    :cool:
