Ruger® Vaquero® Revolver
Excellence In Steel
One of the best products for single action shooting to hit the market. Solid, smooth, and reliable. Ruger's rep for great products continues. Taken care of, this revolver will more than likely out live you and your next generation. I have several of the different barrel lengths, and calibers, and have never been let down. Factory ammo, hand loads, and so on run right through it. There are so many different accessories, parts, and gunsmiths who specialize in this weapon, I don't think Ruger will ever discontinue it.

I got this mostly because I wanted a single action. I took it out to the range and shot it along with my .357mag to test the recoil of the 2 guns, shooting 125gr for the mag and 225gr for the .45. (both hollow points) Over all. I like the .45 better. less recoil and noise with a bigger bullet. Only issue is the plastic grips. They don't look good, and I don't like them.
