'Bout Time

When I was in school, funds were limited and a friend sold me a Ruger Blackhawk 45 Colt at a deal I couldn't pass up. Ever since I bought that, I wished it was a Vaquero. The Blackhawk is just not cowboy enough...

BUT, I made the mistake at walking into the evil pawn shop a few days ago and guess what they had for me? At $400 out the door, I couldn't say no. Great condition with box (no papers) but that don;t matter 'cause this is a keeper. Shot it the next day, I love the 45 Colt cartridge. Just feels right.

nice steel! my blackhawk in 45lc has always been my favorite single action, so i'm a little prejudice. still, nice weapon.

Not saying it isn't, but since I only shoot cowboy loads anyway I much prefer the Vaquero. The blackhawk is most definitely more versatile;)

Great deal! The only Vaquero I have seen locally is NIB and priced at $599.
