Today is my birthday and my wife gave me a present around lunchtime. I was totally surprised to see that she had remembered a stop we had made at a pawn shop/gun store some time ago and saw this used Uberti 1873 Cattleman 7 1/2" barrel pistol in .45 LC complete with holster/belt rig. It was in excellent condition and I remarked that it would be neat to have a western looking outfit like that.
I took it out by the house after giving it a cleaning and fired 6 rounds at one of my left over targets from the Summer Contest. Ammo is not cheap! I did better than I thought I would with the rear notch sight and it seems to be right on.
It's not a Ruger, but it seems well made and I have never had a Uberti before.
I recently got a .45 LC. They are expensive to shoot, but I just buy high quality ammunition, and I save all of my spent brass. Reloading sounds like a fun hobby, and it will be my next one. I will only reload .45 LC, so it should be inexpensive to buy everything for just one caliber. Awesome looking rig by the way. I love the look of it. Looks exactly like a Colt.
