Is a Ruger Vaquero with a short barrel acceptable for pocket pistol events?  




- A pocket pistol is a small frame, fixed sight, pre-1900 design revolver having a barrel length of four inches or less. Pocket pistols must be .31 caliber or larger. Model “P” Colts and clones and revolvers with swing out cylinders are specifically not allowed regardless of caliber, frame size, or barrel length. Colt Model 1877 DA revolvers are LEGAL for use as pocket pistols. Pocket pistols may not be used as or converted to main match revolvers.

I have read that. They clam the Talo Birdshead model is a smaller framed Vaquero. 


Who is "they"??


NONE of the Ruger Vaqueros are considered "small frame".
The New Vaqueros are smaller than the original models, but are considered the same as any other
Model "P" Colt clone.

NOT ALLOWED as a "Pocket Pistol"...they are legal for main match use.
