Starting out!

Recommended Posts

Any more than a mini van is equitable to the Corvette.

It's so much more than a 'Vette... I can squeeze more terrified, screaming passengers in the Min-van!!! ;):P:lol:

Understandable.

 

Whats the old joke?

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my Grandpa - Not screaming and crying like all the passengers in his car.

Don't have time to read all of this but I did notice one comment that said something like. If you are not going to reload, you might want to reconsider the choice of .45 cal. I would come at that from a different viewpoint and say that if you do not intend to reload, you might want to reconsider that choice. Reloading equipment will pay for itself in one reloading session. Everything after that is just gravy. Starting on a budget without reloading will very quickly turn out to be a bad decision

Howdy,

I didn't see where you were?

Usually winter is a good time to buy and try things out.

Most folks think the ruger vaqueros and a 73 are about the best.

Whichever caliber you like but most like em to match.

I like 38/357 and some others do too.

And short barrels on the revolvers, Under 6 inch.

Long barrels sure look cool but they draw slow.

At one time a marlin and a couple blackhawks were a good starter kit.

Demand and supply has made that a bit pricy.

When you go to a few matches to watch and learn, take a camera

and pen and 3x5 cards to record what you like and might want to copy.

Many have a deep interest in the old west even without SASS.

 

Try before you buy, don't be too afraid of used gear if its well cared for.

And don't fergit yer canteen,

Best

Howdy,

Nice lookin marlin over on the classifieds....

IF you like 38s....

I advise pick a caliber and stick with it for maybe two three years.

Its a wise policy but hard to stick to, be warned.

Best
