Finally got myself a 45

Recommended Posts

Tried that two years ago at a sport show. They put up a garbage can with a sensor and a green light. Green light goes off you draw and shoot. Surprised myself and the guys running the booth when I did a .7 seconds on my 3 rd shot. Did another .9sec but couldn’t get back down to it. I could have stayed there all day or until I ran out of money. It was a hoot.

It looks like a lot of fun. Maybe I’ll be geared up enough to include it at the fall shoot. 
 

I’d be damn happy anywhere under a second at first try. Not gonna be me. I’m too slow.

Training. You don’t think about what you do, you just let the body do it.

Sometimes the body won't do what the mind wants it to. 😂

You know Dirk, to do fast draw properly you have to replace the barrel on that gun with an aluminum barrel and heat and bend the hammer spur almost straight up!😁

Back in the 80's I was friends with a guy named Bob Dudley who lived her in Deming. He had a world record of some sort in fast draw. Looking at him you would have never suspected he was into fast draw, he looked like an old, bald headed school teacher or librarian! Never saw him wear any sort of western type clothing or hats! He could draw and fan 5 shots that sounded like one shot!😲

Current regulations don’t allow for those sort of Upgrades. I do t plan to get competitive, but I damn sure will practice.

Had a buddy order up some ammo. Told him get whatever he could. Got a great price on it and I’m set if I decide to play cowboy when the zombies come. Got 200 rounds of this:

Dirk that Sig Ammo is hot sh!t, well it is in 357sig for sure 1356fps @ 510ft/lbs 125gr projectiles ! SD ammo for sure. Enjoy 😋🤯🤬🙀😤🤤 This is the stuff that blew the case apart during a test fire at Lance's shop round 3. Then again at the Fall shoot...Danger, Danger, Will Smith !!!!

I’ll have to see if I can even shoot it. Some of these frames don’t like hot shiit

That's only loaded to 850fps it should be safe for any single action. Out there. This not so much. Corbin DPX  225 gr @ 1200 fps. Can't get photo to load keep's timing out.

That’s some good news. 850 didn’t sound like a lot, but I have been doing some reading as I’m not too familiar with the SA revolvers and clones. I’ve run into a few discussions about being careful what you shoot from some of them. Thanks for the thoughts!

850 in a 45 case should be ok. About the same as 45acp. They make the Vaquero in 44 mag too don’t they? If so, it’s a strong action.

Reading up says the New Vaquero can handle loads in the 14-23k psi range. The original Vaquero was a larger frame and can handle 30k psi. Those are recommendations, but I’ll have to watch. Most of what I shoot out of that pistol will be pretty tame I’m sure. These hollow points are probably not going to be fired all that often. May run a box through just to see how they go....and that leaves me 180 more of them to sit on a shelf.
