Man you guys know yer stuff.
I am humbled and thankful for the opinions and assistance from you all...Thank You Very much.
I enjoy learning about weapons and Single Action is becoming my favorite. (Don't get me wrong. I love my SP101 and I been practicing more and more Double Action with it...<nod>)
Maybe it is from all the westerns I watched growing up.
Reading and learning more about our history also contributed to my love for the 'Six Gun' or the Revolver in general.
However, simply holding and pulling back the hammer while listening to the 'clicks', aiming then pulling the trigger is a beautiful thing.
You really appreciate each and every shot with a single action.
The Bisley Grip 'looks like' it does what you all says it does.
I have never fired any gun with one. I sure wish they had one in my gun shop's rentals.
Like a Test Drive...haha!
I am assuming I could have this gun converted to a Bisley Grip down the road.
I just found out that the gun I was looking at went to a Gun Show this weekend.
There is a fair chance it could be gone by Monday when the shop opens back up.
I talked to the owner's son and he said he would pull it aside for me.
He would have had them hold it at the show but, I wanted to look at it one more time.
I like this young man. He has always been straight with me and also sold me my Single Six.
So I let him know to 'Let it Ride' and if it sells then it sells.
I see no need to rush. One thing about getting older is you do develop a sense of wisdom on 'deals'.
My Father always told me: "The World is full of deals...always be willing to walk away...there is a deal that is perfect for you. Never rush it".
Also I wanted to hear from Men (and Women) like yourselves that KNOW about such things.
Taking in to account that your
experiences, knowledge, and opinions are valuable to me.
So if that gun is back on Monday and after I inspect it again and if the 'feeling' is right...Then I think I will take it.
I want to dicker just enough to purchase that so it is under $500.00.
Meaning by taking the 6% sales tax in to account so it no more then $500.00 'Out the Door'.
My friend and I normally go to this range on Friday afternoons.
So I have 'missed out' on many guns that are normally in the case during the week.
This pass week we were in on a weekday and that is when I saw this .44 Blackhawk.
I am leaving it up to Provendence.
I believe in such things as that.
I never believe in any coincidence of any kind either. On a side note
: I was doing a little reading on John Linebaugh's conversions.
THAT is the Holy Grail of these types of guns in my opinion.
Man, that would be fantastic to own one of his conversions. (You get what you pay for with him and you can tell they will stand behind EVERYthing they work on)
I kept playing that YouTube over and over...I loved the sound of that gun he fired.
Many YouTubes I have listening to just do not have good sound quality.
Probably the camera mic but, his sounded like a real big boy gun!
And to see HOW he handled that gun while firing it was classic.
