    Gotta do it! My dream cool weather carry gun!

    Was looking thru Rugers selection of 44 specials, and saw they make a polished stainless 3 inch Vaquero. My heart almost stopped beating! All I can think about now is the thousands of 240-315 grain 44 bullets in my basement. Gonna try and find one at Court Days festival in Mt Sterling Ky next week. If not gonna go to Buds in Lexington and annie up the money! I can't think of a more perfect combo of gun and cartridge for SD for this ole boy! So if any of y'all see a guy in a Stetson runnin from table to table there, stay outa my way! I'm on a mission. Ye Ha! Gonna get it, gonna get it! Ain't nothin stored my blood like this since my 4th weddin night!

    Of course, you all should know that I am gun fickle, but for right now, Ya Hooey!

    And of course on a more serious note, if ya do see a half crazed cowboy there, please come up and introduce yourself. It would be great to meet someone on this forum. Plus, y'all could help me look!

    I haven't seen one but it sounds pretty sweet to me. I am kicking around the idea of picking up a 5.5" Blackhawk 44 Spl myself just because I don't have one and I want one. Here's hoping you get your Vaquero Glockman10mm.

    Just a word of caution. If this is a new Vaquero don't load it hot. Unlike the old "tank" Vaqueros, this one won't stand up to anything really heavy. I do like mine with a mid-range .44 special load and a 200 grain bullet.

    I read an article where Brian Pierce did a review of the new smaller framed BH, and he said it was plenty sturdy for the hot loads, but I don't know if the Vaqureo uses this same frame. Anyway, I was planning on keeping the loads in the mid range and letting that big ole heavy bullet do the work.

    Glockman, good luck in your search. If you come up dry, slide down to Nashville and head west on I-40 to Flagstaff. Then venture into the Pistol Parlor over on 7th Ave... Gary Reeder's creations will have you nearly sacrificing your Stetson!

    Here's a taste, just to wet your whistle... http://www.reedercustomguns.com/revo...backpacker.htm

    (P.S. - do you search the satellite channels for re-runs of McCloud?)

    .44 special Vaqueros? That would be very nice! But I am surprised because Ruger’s site shows only .357 and .45 Colt.

    GM,
    The .44 special Vaqueros may be a special item with a particular distributor. The .44 spcl Blackhawk was an exclusive for Lipseys. Ruger won't usually list specials on their website.

    I suspect that it should be right up your alley and a hoot to boot.

    Yep, I just found a Vaquero .44 special at Gunsameria, and now I have to convince myself that I do not need it. Thanks for that glockman10mm

    They show 44 Spls in the Distributor Exclusive section for the Vaqueros.
