got me a Vaquero .44 mag. with 7 1/2 " barrel. Got out shooting it and my girlfriend's .40 XD springfield. Both guns are fairly nice . The .44 sure recoils compared to the autos I usually shoot. Girlfriend even shot my .44 mag.
Vaquero is a bit of a classic - lovely gun and Ruger strong too.
I don't personally find the grip config' suits me too well otherwise I'd have bought one - but a lotta CAS folks seem to like 'em in .45 LC.
Certainly a very nice gun to own. Recoil with .44 will be fairly firm but seems often that traditional grip style allows you to let gun ''spin'' in the hand a bit as muzzle rises - so reducing a bit of perceived recoil into hand. Enjoy :smile:
