Oh good I’m finally going to be legal there
god that thing looks appealing
Without a doubt the best gun videos to watch with so much education about the fire arms you are shooting 357 have got to be the best handgun Love the new Rugers built on the old styles
So 9mm and 357 can be shot through the same revolver barrel? 9mm and 357 don’t fit the same drum but they do fit the same barrel? Sorry for noob question but how is that?
Rainy days are good for binge watching Hickok45 videos.
Another idea for ‘adjusting’ the sighting on a fixed sight gun- Use white out to paint a strip across the front sight to more clearly indicate your point of aim with regularly used ammo type to improve point of aim on target for a specific yardage range. The gun itself is not altered and at least for my eyes that white stripe is more easily picked up by my eyes.
What’s the difference between the Vaquero and the Blackhawk?
I have a couple of .45 SAA made by Pietta, a 5 1/2 " and a 7 1/2 " model EL Malo 2. They are quite nice to shoot and look at. They have an octagon barrel and engraved wooden army grips that are a bit longer and comfortable to hold. You have large hands, you might want to give them a shot. Sometimes Bud’s has them, Cimarron imports them and usually has them. GOOD LUCK.
I want to see a ruger bearcat in 22 Magnum with both style grips regular and birdshead
Ages ago, I had a Ruger Blackhawk convertible. In theory, it’s a good idea but in practice, it’s just one more thing to make up your mind about. I was reloading at the time and .38 special was what I did most of my shooting with. But I guess it’s a good idea if you have a lifetime supply of 9mm and .38/.358 reloading components are scarce.
I also had a S&W Model 457 revolver, I think it was, in 9mm, which also did not require clips. Frankly, the
Good thoughts on colts but if I own one I am gonna shoot it . It should outlast me no reason to save it.
Growing up my dad had a Blackhawk with the 357/9mm. Loved shooting the 357 but the 9 with the second cylinder fit the rounds great but they were sloppy thru the barrel and we key holed and thru so many wild rounds we never ended up shooting 9s after a few trips to the range. Love you Hickok family
id imagine shooting 9mm NATO in it its mostly considered +P Luger ammo
Could you shout 380 also with this gun?
You never mention a floating firing pin…… like most clones have. Safe to carry 6
Yeh…mine was a bigger frame Vaquero…..it was heavy.
Most times they carried their burial money in #6. I’d like a Ruger Vaquero in .44 mag. That would be a nice companion for my Marlin 1894.
That Was The Very First Pistol, I Bought Legal On My 21st BD. I Loved The 357/ 38 Special. The 9mm. Not So Much. The ACP Rounds Of The 9mm Swell And Got Stuck In The Cylinder. I Hated It So Much, That Somehow Or Another It Wound Up In The Trash. Good Riddens! One Of The Best Magnums, I Ever Owned. Accurate, And Worked Everytime. Was Not Fussy With Ammo Quality.
Vaquero means cowboy
After a pretty stressful day, I watched this video. Now, I am relaxed and smiling
doesnt transfer bar slow lock time?
Will the 9mm cylinder also shoot 380s? Congrats to TN for passing constitutional carry! 2021
I personally think 9mm is the best round ever. easy and cheap to reload and very powerful and widely available even in ammo shortages.
I love the country song in the end lol. amazing videos as always thanks guys
Smoke some pot 🤘🤣🤣🤣
Love it !
Colt, Ruger or Uberti in 357 are there som others? If there is which is the best budget gun?
2 calibers I’ve never shot and will never own if not a 380 or 30cal its crap
That pistol looks sweet
I absolutely love your videos and I love revolvers especially the single actions ,I’ve been wanting this exact modle ruger Vaquero with two cylinders for a very long time and canot find one anywhere,
As ALWAYS you bring the most comprehensive and enjoyable reviews. Problem is it leads to me spending my retirement but hey thats what its for,,,FUN!!
I had a Ruger Vaquero in 45LC
Would love to have one, but these are pretty pricey these days. For the price, I think you can get a S&W 686-6 like I purchased a year or two ago.
Hickok is the dr Phil of firearms
Our ‘Bob Ross’ of firearms!
How much is a Ruger Black Hawk 30 carbine worth? And how much is a Ruger Black Hawk 357/9mm worth? Thank you.
Colt and SAA clone manufacturers, take note!
I’d rather just put .38s in it than switch out to 9mm
Busy making guns. Hahahahaha. Busy not making guns more like it.
Ruger used to be great firearms at great price. Well, price has gone nuts. Bet a new CEO came in and is filling his own bank account.
My Vaquero is in 44mag.
I love mine!
You hate the cowboy don’t you, you abuse him way more often
My guess $800 minimum. MSRP $829. Close
Did he fire five or did he fire six? Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya?
Can you tell me where I can get a holster like that for my ruger single six ?
the ultimate cowboy gun
You can get with ruger and they will time a 9mm cylinder to your gun . Have to send it to them with a little over 100 dollars. The ones made in the 70’s had three different cylinders a,b,c that you cold match to your gun.i had one of those for a while.
I think the distributors are the ones to determine what the markets are demanding and they ask the manufacturers to produce what they feel they can sell.
Do they offer that conversion with the gp100
A 9 mm and a 380 require moonclips how is it that you do not us them . Is the cylinder tapered to handle these rounds ….Thank you Tom ….
