Vaquero with new Bear Paw Grips

All, just showing you my new walnut grips on my Vaquero. I liked my 50th .44 grips so much I bought another pair for this gun.

The .44 grips are in this thread : http://www.rugerforum.net/showthread...844#post132844

Thanks. I really enjoy shooting the ol' .45 . I like grips that aren't to 'shiny' and these 'fill the bill' so to speak. Also fit well in my hands of course...

Got to shoot the .45 tonight. Went through about 100 rounds. Oh, I like . Grip feels as good as it does on the .44 . Going to have to change the rest of 'em out ... over time of course....

Here are my new .357 50th BearPaw Rosewood Grips. Not quite as good a fit, but not bad. Lot better than the o' cheese graters.

Here is my .45 BH with Amboyna Burl Bear Paw Grips. Fit again was good.

[edited] Took it out this evening and it felt good in the hands. Went though above 100 rounds loaded with 8.5g Unique pushing a 250g RNFP bullet. Wahoo.... Now all my main shooters have the same style of grips which should help consistency.... Also went though about 60 rounds of .357 too.... I must say, I think I shoot the 'mild' .357 better than the .45 Colt ... But I like shooting the .45 better ..... Go figure .

[edited] 9/10/09 . Last picture is both my .45s. I sanded the grips exactly to the frame and re-oiled. Amazing what a little elbow grease can perform! Feel better and look much better (to me anyway).

Thank-you all who replied!! I just love this forum. I have yet to decide which grips to actually try, I am considering the hougeor Packmyar grips but also am interested in the Badger grips,manly because they are wooden. anybody have any feedback on the Badger grips?

rclark,

Would you mind posting a pic of the grips taken from behind the backstrap so I can see what the thickness looks like? I'm interested in a set and would like to know how they compare to standard wood Blackhawk grips.

Got the pictures .... but can't post as it 'exceeds' my attachment limit..... Looks like we 'only' have 1M of storage here on this site. PM me your e-mail and I ship them to you.

Whats wrong with using a free picture hosting service such as photobucket (and others)? We all would like to see the pics...

Well, I just don't see the since of having to go to another site to put pictures, then come back here and post image links. None of my R/C Airplane forums I frequent have a problem with posting pictures with given size restrictions....

It's called bandwidth and the owner of the site has to pay for it. Every time you post an image hosted by this site, it costs money. If you host it on another site and link it from there, the bandwidth is paid for on the other site. Free photo hosting sites get their revenue from advertising.

Most forum sites that I frequent require linking of images and do not host them. My guess is that if every member of this site paid $50 a year, we could host images here. Since it's a donation site, we link.........
