@Colorado Sonny So, been wanting a Ruger SA revolver in .45ACP and maybe .45 LC for a while. Going to keep it stock for a while, maybe some work in the future. Blackhawk, Vaquero? What barrel length would you get? This is just a 'cause I want one' gun. I will shoot the heck out of it at the range, and might carry it every other blue moon, but just want. LGS has a Blackhawk .45acp/45LC model in stock for $699. But it has had a birthday in that gun shop, and has the plain plastic grips. I don't mind saving up a bit to 'upgrade' if there is a model I don't know about. Ideas?
