My 38 match guns

There P 'jr' are 38 spec made on 22 frame or 7/8 size Colt frame like the Ruger Single -Six



Add a short stroke 73 in 38 spec and go do the Cowboy Action shooting



You will need a 12 ga Shotgun too .



My health has keep me from shooting them in matches . Maybe this yr I can get back to SASS shooting again . Sold all my other SASS guns .

TGR, I think I can safely speak for everyone, here, when I say we would love to see you get back to some CASS shooting. Go for it.

You're making my trigger finger itch.
I love shooting my little Uberti and Henry. One day I will get them both a couple of big brothers in 38. And I love the look of the coach gun. I have considered picking up a shotgun for home defense but the pump actions just don't appeal to me like the Coach does.

If you get a side by side and are going to keep it ammo loaded in chamber get one with hammers . The hammers are the only safety like a SA revolver and are safe to do it that way . The hammerless and pump shotguns you should not leave ammo in it chamber and rely on the safety . Most hammer gun shooter can cock both hammer at the same time and are just as fast as the hammerless or pump gun shooter . There is video's on how to load and shoot hammer guns . Cut shells work great for home defense and you can do it to any shotgun shell . .

Thanks For the tips TGR. I do like the idea of having more rounds available with a pump. But with a handgun as backup I think would work. And of course practice on reloads would be necessary.
I've seen the cut shell video before it is cool.
I feel myself drawn to the cowboy style guns more every time I see one.

Careful, Seabee. In the case of SA revolvers, I can tell you they are very addictive. Although our DA revolvers are more practical in many ways, I find that I can actually shoot our SA revolvers a bit better. Why, I'm not sure, but one thing that is for sure is that shooting SA revolvers is also one heck of a lot of fun.

Our Ruger 357 Flat Top convertible will outshoot most of our S&W 357s.

I don't own a handgun that will out shoot my 44-40 Vaquero . This was a test fire target after I cut the barrel to 3 1/2" and the forcing cone to 11 degrees and the last time I shot it on paper .

Of the Ruger SA guns the Vaquero line appeals to me most. Not that I would refuse to accept a gift of a Single Six, Seven, Etc. Nor would I turn up my nose on a Blackhawk or even a Bearcat.
But the Vaquero just looks and feels right. And I love the birds head models.

I had a few birdshead that are not in picture and there all history now in the thinning of my herd . None of the birdshead in pic was never offered from Ruger in 32-20 or 44-40 . I made them all from donor guns

Those Sheriff models always remind me of Sheriff Roy Coffee.
