Since I was in my teens I have been a hell bent devoted assault style weapon collector but now my taste has changed so much Now I only collect the old style cowboy guns. All I own now is the Henry mares leg .44mag and the 2 handguns 1 cimmaron Thunderball .45 LC and 1 cimmaron .45LC Sherrif/Store keeper model with the 3 1/2 inch barrell both with birds head grips. And man do I love them all.

I'm the same way although I love my tacti-cool stuff to. It's is more fun to shoot the "Old West" stuff...we have 2 twin stainless Ruger Bisley 's in .45Colt w/ 5.5" barrels, one "original" blued Vaquero in .45 Colt w/ 4 5/8" barrel, one blued Ruger New Blackhawk Convertible .45acp/.45 Colt, two Henry Big Boy .45 Colts and a Winchester 94 in .44 magnum. I'm searching for a second 4 5/8" "original" Ruger Vaquero .45 Colt but haven't found anything yet.

You can post pics at the top of the page in the "gun pics" thread.

Anyone know who makes fancy bird head grips for the two six shooters? I would like to dress them up like I do my Harley. I jus want to make them look sharp but stay in the time era.

I must have been born old, because I've loved shooting revolvers since I was 9 years old. First handgun I ever fired was my dad's Ruger Security-Six (bet y'all never would have guessed that, right? :P). I've got as many revolvers as I do semi-autos. Unfortunately, I only have 2 lever-action rifles, a Marlin in .357 Magnum and a Rossi in .45 Colt. I would love to have a .45-70, a .30-30, and a .405 Winchester (Why? Because. That's why.). If I could find one, I'd also love to have a lever action in 7-30 Waters, but that's spending a butt load of money either buying a gun rare as hen's teeth or having a .30-30 rebarreled.

I don't care for the foreign made copies, I know some of them are good quality copies but I just prefer my "American old west" style guns to be American. My next "old west" style gun, other than an original Vaquero and an actual Colt SAA, will probably be a Marlin 1894SS. Generally I prefer Winchester and Henry lever actions but I want a stainless .44 magnum 1894 and Marlin is the only US manufacturer that makes one and I need a Marlin for my collection anyway. I think a Marlin stainless steel 1894 with black synthetic stocks would look great and be a perfect choice for bad weather gun sort of like a lever action version of my Savage 116 "Weather Warrior" bolt action.

I'm jonesing like crazy to shoot my single actions and lever guns. I also have to try out the new recoil pad on my .50 Beowulf, she should be as light as a .22 now lol.

Does anyone have a .44 magnum single action that's not a long barrel hunting gun? I've always wondered if the recoil of a .44 magnum single action was as bad as it seems it would be. My S&W 629 V-Comp N frame packs a pretty decent wallop and that's with recoil absorbing grips and a compensator, it's got to be quite a bit worse out of a single action.
