I’m with Rye on this.
I been doing this for almost 25 years. I have guns in 38 spl, 44Russian, 44 spl, 44-40 and 45colt. I have Colt saa’s, Colt 1860 & 1851 conversions, Ruger original big frame Vaqueros and New Vaqueros. All my rifles are in 44WCF. It’s the only caliber for a 73 Winchester in my opinion. I wouldn’t give up any of Em!
I shoot Em all regularly, but me, I’m playing cowboy, not competing. If My score is in the faster shooters of the match there are some mighty slow shooters at that match!
Try as many as you can. Don’t hesitate to accept an offer to try someone’s guns. Cowboy shooters love to let others try their guns. It’s what we do!
