Finally got some new grips for my Single Seven. I settled on Altamont to make them as I liked both their style and their prices. I got a pair of their New Vaquero Bird's Head grips, which they swore would fit my Single Seven.

I was skeptical, but ordered the grips anyway. When they came, they fitted like a custom-made set ... right on the money!

These are walnut with Lone Star medallions. I really like the color and grain of the wood.

I love shooting this pistol. It's surprisingly accurate and with 85-grain Fed Mags instead of the Full-on 100-grainers, it's enjoyable to shoot. It's even more fun with 85 grain XTPs over a light load of CFE Pistol.

I'm going to crank out some lower-velocity Acme Bullet Hi-Tek-coated lead .32s for plinking and varmint-shooting. Acme's bullets are available in a form with no lubricating groove, which lets them build a more stable bullet because of the longer contact area, they claim. We'll see.

I have a bunch of tiny .32 S&W (Short) loads that I call a 'reloadable .22 LR' and I shoot tin cans with them. Cheap, fun, and the brass can be reloaded many, many times.

I've got buddies who used to kid me about my .32 "Mouse Guns." I silenced one of them the first time I lit off a Full House American Eagle .327 Fed Maggie in their 100-grain Soft Point. He said, "Okay. Maybe a really BIG mouse!"

Gunman, do you shoot your Two Tone Blackhawk? I have but 3 firearms that I do not shoot, the 2 tone is one that has remained unfired. However I do have an all stainless Blackhawk that goes to the range quite often.

I acquired a Henry a few months ago but haven’t been able to spend much time at the range with it. It has been back to Henry twice with very few rounds thur it.

I hope to get to give it a good work out this afternoon. Maybe all will be well with it this time.

I really like the 327’s. I think I have them all except the Bisley and the LCR. Had an LCR at one time but didn’t think it to be a very good defensive round. I believe one would suffer permanent hearing loss if shooting the LCR without hearing protection and follow up shots would but hindered with the recoil with full house327 loads.

I just purchased a Vaquero Bisley stainless in .357. I have not fired it yet, hopefully in the next couple of days, it is my first Ruger and my first revolver, I have always had semi-autos in .40 to .357

Cool

[QUOTE=Steelburner;4434081]I very recently bought my first Ruger SA; the Single-Seven .327 Federal Magnum. It's a beautiful piece of work.

Good choice, beautiful gun!...although I'll keep my mild-mannered, "quiet" .357 GP 100 Looudenboomer!
