So, we went with 2 Cimarron Pistoleros in 357, one Nickle and one Color case hardened. I run 38s there. 399 for one and the nickle was 459, we found a pre safety Rossi 92 in 357 (paid 450at a gun show) which I did the slick work on and it operates with one finger, but only likes the 357 cases for feeding. We got a Stoeger coach in 12ga on the SASSnet classifieds, and recently got another Stoeger coach in 20ga from Johnny Meadows here on SASS. We run Win AA low recoil in both coach guns and they run like a dream. Save your Hulls for reloading. I would suggest getting in touch Johhny Meadows for your shotgun, as he does great work. AND at a good price. I added leathers from Wylie Leather. The deals are out there. I just scored 2 Uberti Stoeger clones, an 1873 rifle, Octagon bbl, in 45 Colt, and it's companion 1873 Cattelmen in 45 Colt. Both for $500.
Both boy's should be able to operate all of the above.
