Drawing to a new pair

As much as I love my Schofields, Opentops with Army grips fit my paws perfectly. So I traded with @John Barleycorn, SASS #76982 for a match to my other one. Can't wait to shoot these at the next meet in 2 weeks.

Some guns just fit like they are molded to your hand. I looked at this one. Had no need for it. But it kept coming up in my mind.  Couple weeks later went back and got it. Shoots ridiculously well. Lots of velocity is lost but fun to shoot.

There's a 3" Schofield that rides on my other hip most matches.

There is one of these for sale locally I have fondled and drooled on a couple times. A perfect gun but the price is stratospheric.  44-40 even. But, but, but... excuses for not buying it even I don't want to hear... from my own self. Ugh...

These are gorgeous revolvers. I love OTs. They point naturally and are a joy to shoot. Well done!

Nice OT's.  Will you shoot 45 Colt, Schofield or CS in them?

I load .45 Colt, usually a 200 grain RNFP over 7.3 grains of Unique.

As long as we are posting pics of them, this is my new (to me) Schofield...

Yep, I finally found one!

For contrast, here's my old Scofield.

I love that well=loved Schofield. You can see in the first post, the new gun leaned up against mine. I had to get a cover for it as the cover was really getting worn. Strangely, the marker ribbon in it finally wore completely out!
