Default SAA & a Luger.

SAA points just like a Luger, with practice you don't even have to aim. Not within a few yards I own both.
I can bounce cans all day long with my Colt and my Luger no problem.
Few handguns these days can make that claim. They are like an extension of your finger, you point you fire.

I think a lot of it has to do with the gun, for me the SAA is the best choice for doing point shooting.
But your right it takes a lot of practice and the longer barrels do it better than the short ones.
Sometimes I just follow the front sight and shoot a little low.
Or just use the gun like an extension of my finger pointing at something.
Pretty soon your bouncing cans with no problem hitting them. My buddy can hit clay pigeons on the fly.
But he is 72 years old and has used a SAA all of his life, it's all he carries or shoots.

no offense implied or intended.
more like wholehearted agreement without being
able to be there and jump up and down and shout "YES-YES-YES ! ! "



the only way to get good at something is repetitious practice
whether it be with firearm or golf club or tennis racket or ball
of choice, etc. familiarity doesn't come without it.
nobody ever gets good or stays good at anything without practice.

Both the 1911 and the SAA are incredibly accurate anyway. Which helps but it still takes practice.
Fanning a SAA is just stupid and can damage the gun, Hollywood.

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.

The problem I had with the first generation Vaquero's was they didn't get the shell ejection timing right.
They shot fine but when you went to eject the caseings the cly wouldn't line up with the election port.
You had to click it around and hold it in place to eject the shells.
Ruger got a lot of complaints about this so they ether had you send them in or you got a huge credit
voucher to buy the second generation gun.


But I'm a traditionalist, I want the fixed fireing pin in the hammer just like the Colts which the Uberti does have.
Same thing with the older S&W double actions, plus they now have the Hillary hole for locking them.
Which is known to go into lock as your shooting it and it takes a PHD to get it unlocked.

For an PD CC handgun, then another type of action is preferred, though if have a SAA I do not feel handicapped or that it is ineffective for that purpose.
recently, i had to defend myself and family from a home invasion with my new vaquero 357mag ... i didnt feel undergunned at all.
there was about 6 feet between us. i was loaded with six, but didnt even need one.. thought im confident 1 would have done the job.

The new model Vaquero is closely based on the Old Colt BP type frame. It's a little bigger than the SAA.
And I never feel outgunned with a SAA, they take calibers known to be killers.
Scibaer especially a 357, which the FBI still says the 125gr JHP is the most deadly handgun round there is.
You have very little chance of surviving being hit by one.
