  1. If you change your mind on shipping, please let me know. After all the things he did to help me when I started this sport, it would mean a lot to me to have one of Wes' guns.
  2. Mine are both Blackhawk hammers by measuring it out. I have one set where everything but the hammer appears to be for a single six. Pm me if you want pictures.
  3. I'll measure when I get home, I have a couple sets of pre safety bar parts but I'm not sure if they are single six or Blackhawk.
  4. That's the ultimate question. If the cost to have a cylinder modified is $200-250, it would make sense. Any higher and I'm better off waiting for the right revolver to come along.
  5. I've seen people say that, but it honestly doesn't make sense to me. The rim diameter of 44-40 isn't much more than 45 Colt and the base diameter is actually smaller. How much smaller is the diameter of a new vaquero cylinder in comparison with a Colt?
  6. Seeing if it would be a cheaper option to end up with a stainless 5.5 vaquero. From everything I've read about them, they used .429 barrels and owners were typically having the cylinders worked to match that.
  7. Contemplating the idea of having a 44mag rechambered to 44-40, but haven't found any gunsmiths that advertise that they would do it. Any leads? Would this even be cost effective? Thanks! Shifty
  8. I have two sets of the original pre transfer bar parts for Ruger Old models. I was told that the hammers from the blackhawk and single six are different sizes, could anyone give me some details on measurements or how to tell them apart? I do not have any 3 screw models at hand to compare to.
  9. I'll take half or all, whatever is left. Shifty
  10. I've seen a few comments trashing these saying they are junk. Are they really that much worse than the IACs? I had one when they were first imported in the mid 2000s and was not impressed. Did the quality of IACs go up?
  11. Just like the title says, my wife needs a 32-20 carbine, preferably a 73 but would also be interested in a 66. Must be a round barrel carbine. Thanks!
  12. Well, this thread made it a while, but apparently 3 pages is the limit for conversation relevant to the topic.
  13. It wouldn't be a bad program to have EOT travel to a few different locations. It would get more exposure and they could target areas with large populations of potential spectators. Southern California, Dallas/Houston, Atlanta, Indianapolis would all be good locations if there are ranges that could handle it near by.
  14. If it's any consolation, I have wanted my dad to shoot with me since I got started in CAS and have never been able to get him interested enough to do it. Now I'm just hoping my son will join me someday.
  15. One thing to point out, at 17 I was blessed with very financially supportive parents. The cost to get in the game is definitely a big obstacle for someone younger to get involved.
  16. I get that. I grew up with a 69 Camaro and a 56 nomad parked in our garage and never developed an interest in cars. Have you pointed out to him that you are also in a fantasy role playing game?
  17. I guess one could make that assumption. By the way, I started cowboy shooting on my own at 17. I never watched westerns growing up, but found SASS while researching the guns I used while playing Red Dead Revolver. So I wouldn't discount an entire group of people that have exposure to the old west genre just because of the media they chose.
  18. True, but the generation that is playing Western video games is ripe for the picking. Red Dead Redemption 2 sold 17 million copies in the first two weeks after release.
  19. Founders Ranch is an awesome facility that every cowboy shooter should go to at least once. But for non shooters or people not yet involved in the sport it has 3 things going against it. Location, location, location.
