Re: SAA & a Luger.
I'm the same way, if I only had one gun it would be the SAA. I've hit clay pigeons before but not nearly as good as the old man I know can do. I like the balance of the 4 3/4 barrels over the six.
I've seen guys really mess up their guns internals fan firing before, but they didn't know what they were doing.
A SAA is only rivaled by a Glock on how fast you can be in the battery position, but they are neck in neck if the one with the SAA knows what he is doing, in some cases it's even faster.
I've shot a Schofield S&W before and they were known to lock up if your drawing them to fast.
The one I had didn't but I've heard of it happening with them, and they don't feel as good to me.
Neither does the Remington I found them to feel bulky. Vaquero's are ok but they still don't feel the same.
But a lot of the cowboy shooters use them especially the lady's. The Uberti is a Colt clone it's hard to tell
any difference other than the one piece grips but you can get them to take the Colt grips.
I usually use my Uberti, my colts are first and second generation, for just plinking and burning rounds the
clone is better for doing that.
