Well I ordered new consecutive ss rugers in 45. 7 1/2 . For much cheaper than any used 4 5/8s or 5 1/2 s i could find anywhere . thanks for the heads up from a cowboy here.

Thank you for all the help and advice

To me, nothing looks sillier than a big man with a tiny holster.

Had a gal tell me that once . . . . . Got a bigger holster after that . . . .

Calamity JoAnne's profile won't work, so I'll post for her.

She shoots .44 K-Bisley Vaqueros with 7.5" barrels.


The other lengths in our outfit are as follows (all Vaqueros & Blackhawk .44's)

Russ T. Spittoon 7.5"

Commissioner Gordon 4.6"

SASSy Shawna 4.6"

Winchester Wade 5.5"

Amy Oakley 5.5"

Tin Star Tim 7.5"

Mustang Gregg 5.5" or 4.6"

Ok playing at the range today to try some different barrel lengths.


3 1/2. Just didn't balance right. Really quick pointing though


4 5/8 quick shooting well balanced



5 1/2 good balance faster on target



7 1/2 not that much slower love the sight radious

Points well for me and if I miss the target with the bullet I can always hit it with the barrel


Thanks for the help
