So who else here is a fan of single action sixguns? This spring I went into a pawn shop in Ronan that often carries older guns and this Colt was sitting there on consignment. Made in 1978 it was still new in the box with the factory zip tie still in place locking the action. Within a couple of hours of getting it home it lost the "unfired" status.




Put a set of Wolff springs in it and it's now my outdoor companion. So let's see other people's single action pistols wether they be Colt, Ruger, Uberti, Remington etc.

Larry, that is a purty gun there. Nice purchase. And HuntingHawk, you can't beat a Ruger. I like the rig too.

Here are two of my Rugers. My .45 New Vaquero and deuce-deuce Single-Six. I also have a Uberti in .45 Colt but no pictures of it available.



It's always a pleasure to see what other SAs you all have out there.

A friend gave me a Ruger Single Six in .357 years back. Rarely use but it's a fun gun to play with at times. I must resist the temptation to buy a western holster setup.

SIG has been hosting the 2011 Death Valley Shootout - 6 Stage CAS Shoot twice a year under the new Special Events series.

Here's my SASS rig. The pistols are Colt SAA's, one built in 1992 and the other in 1996. The one with the gold screws (the 1996 one) now wears a set of gen-u-wine elephant ivory with gold Colt medallions. Both are in .45 Colt and I had 'em tuned by Ben Forkin in Montana.

Leather rig is a slight variation on the one worn by Johnny Ringo (Michael Biehn) in the movie "Tombstone", handmade by Rudy Lozano.

Shotgun is a Winchester 1897 takedown, made in 1903.

Carbine is a Rossi M-92 in .45 Colt, brass-tacked by me.

Knife was "made" by me. Started as a Cold Steel Recon Tanto that I broke the tip off of accidentally. Got rid of the rubber grip, replaced with stag and brass pins. Made the hilt out of a brass coin. Stripped of the high-tech finish and gave it a "hand-hammered" look.

Chaps were made for me by an Amish fella up in Charm, OH.

Boots were handmade by a fella out of Sonoita, AZ, out of mule-hide. They were custom made to fit me and are reproductions of the US cavalry boot of the late 1800's, except I had a low, walking heel put on 'em instead of the high, riding heel.

I am a big fan of the single action revolver! I unfortunately only have one at the moment; a North American Arms Mini-Master in .22lr & .22magnum. I do intend on adding a Ruger Vaquero to the collection at some point in the future. I think cowboy action shooting would be an outstanding hobby to pursue! Unfortunately there are lots of other firearms I want in the collection as well. Priorities are a b*tch!

I like singles, but I currently only own two: A Blackhawk in .44 Mag and a Bisley Vaquero in .45 Colt. Both are great guns, and love cast boolits...

The rear of the trigger guard on the Colt seems to be more friendly than the rear of the Ruger Vaquero. Is there a difference in handling and firing? If I am not careful the rear of the trigger guard will bite right in to my finger when I fire it.
