I found a vaquero today at my local gun shop. It's the color cased blued version with the factory walnut grips. It was used but the guy hardly ever shot it. There's zero wear on the barrel frame or grip. I checked the price tag and it was a price I couldn't beat anywhere I found. So she came home with me! I ran 50 rounds through her and it was everything I hoped for and more! I'm hooked! I'd like to replace grips and get a good holster for it. Any suggestions?

I have a Ruger GP 100 and a Chiappa Rhino. Love my Chiappa bought it when they first came out. It has been through a car accident (I was t-boned at 70 miles an hour) the chiappa was in the door that got hit. It is also my purse carry. Love the way it shoots.
I conceal carry because I choose not to be a victim.

Another revolver to look at would be the Uberti colt clones, they are well built and not near the price of the colt.

Ordered a triple K leather thrumb break leather holster for it. My vaquero is the "old" vaquero. According to the serial number made around 2001. Its in MINT condition. I can't believe the deal and the gun! I'm so excited. It's gonna have a long happy life with me. I'm gonna get new grips for it soon but havnt found any I like yet.

I must have missed the required pictures of all new gun purchases? :headscratch :fire
