FYI, you have to vote for both at the same time.  I'm stuck with just one vote. Sooo sad. Haw! Grin

I voted for Ruger because they are the best Grin but seriously I like them for their toughness and dependibility.

Ruger.  With Eagle Gunfighter Grips they point real well for me.  I don't have to search for the sights.

Ruger 4-5/8" Vaquero and a Ruger 4-5/8" Bisley Vaquero. Both blued in .44 magnum. I had them both before I got into the sport and they do double duty as ranch/hunting guns. Can't beat them for strength, reliability and affordability!

Roogers! Cause thats what I got.  Roll Eyes I bought my first Rooger back in '74 it wearn't a CAS pistola though. A nice little SS Security Six .357. I came with a 4" barrel an' I had it changed to 6". Shot bullseye and silhouette fer more a few years. Next "76 come the Super Blackhawk 44 Mag. 7 1/2" Blue. I carried it around on every hunt fer ever. I did the slihouette thing with it too! When I went half blind an' plum crazy I put'm away fer 'bout 15 years. A few years back my buddy was getin' outta the gun business an says last call. I aways wanted a '94 Win. as a companion piece fer the Blackhawk. So now I got 2 cowboy guns. Well, 3 really cause I already had this '94 Win Musket NRA thingy! Next thing I know I'm holding a Bisley and it stuck to ma hand. Well, hoot I got 2 hands, had ta have 2 Bisley's 44 Mag Vaquero's 5 1/2" a course. Then along come a SXS and for I know it a brace a '58's NMA Sheriff's. Leather, Duds, Ammo and such, I had forgotten how much I like to reload, ma boolet bags weights near 80#. I can hardly get up in the PU. An I still got brass ta load! Geez, I think I'm outta control! But lovin' it.  Grin Grin Grin Grin Yeee Haaaaa!

I like the Colt's becaus they have the look, the feel
the heretage of the Cowboy idea.
If i'd want strength i'd by a Freadom Arm's
The Remington C&B for their dependibility because
i never had a malfunctin with my -58

Rugers for durability/reliability/price.

Colt clones for traditional looks, and they just feel better in my hands.

I voted for Other.. cause I just enjoy shooting my Rems so much right now.  They are better pistols than I deserve... and no, you can't have them Wink

I also plan to like my new Opentops in 45 Schofield.. so Other gets some reinforcement.

But I would have voted for Ruger as well.  I've got a pair of RVBs and I never, ever worry about how they will shoot and if they will work.  They just don't have the panache' of the Rems, or Opentops, or even Replicas..

Adios,

Definitively my Rems '58, go feeling, never had a single problem with them, most of the time used C&B but sometimes with a convertion cylinder( do I have to mention the brand? well, it's only two initials  Wink)

To me it`s Rugers only because of the durability and price. That also goes for my off-topic big-game rifle.

My first singleaction was a SuperBlackhawk. Before CAS, the fun part was heavy loads. When I started with CAS I used my Super for a while, then changed to a Schofield. But my hands ain`t to big, so i didn`t like the grip for duelistshooting. Then I changed to 5\5 Vaqueros, and hopefully that will be my last trade.

Once in a while I shoot cap & ball, and then I find the Remington 1858 very reliable and accurate.

I am shooting Ruger Bisley Vaqueros as my main guns.  I like the grip and the lower hammer for shooting duelist. I was shooting 1875 Remingtons mainly until I got the RBV's. The Remingtons point  well and fun to shoot but I was having problems shooting BP with them so I got the RBV's.

It's all good. But Ruger has been the gateway for more shooters getting into CAS than all others combined. The vast majority are very shootable out of the box and a set of Wolff springs makes them very smooth. I love the way my Schofields shoot, but I want to be buried with my RV's.

Hext, I have and like them all Grin  but you said "favorite"  so I picked "other" since my favotites are my Smith & Wesson New Models.

I shoot my best groups with my Vaqueros.

Like my Colt Clones pretty well and shoot them on occasion.  But my favorites are hands down the Smiths.  Now if someone would just make a clone Grin

I've been a fan of the Colt SAA since I began watching westerns as a kid.  I still think they're the best.  Between my wife and I we now have eight of them.  But...just got a USFA

BTW, the only reason Pards pick something other than the Smith & Wesson New Model number 3s is because they have never had the chance to shoot one. Grin  If they ever do they will realize the best any other gun can be is second best! Cool

That's really a hard question.....I worked it down to two, both percussion guns, the 1860 and the 1851.....then, went with the 1851 as my favorite overall.....then had to vote 'other' as it wasn't a choice.   Cry

Got my first handgun when I was a tender age of 12, it was a brass framed "Reb" model , .36 caliber, 1851 style from Navy Arms....it was my constant companion and I kliterally shot it to death.  Grin

rugar 32's, stainless. i picked my girls because they fit in my hand very well. and the recoil is almost zero.
these were the first hand gun i touched and just had to have.
they are in consecutive serial #'s. and get this, the last 2 digits are the same as the last two #'s of my other half's and mine sass #'s. Grin
just had to have at that point.

shoot strait and always have fun.

Right now it’s a pair of Frontier Marshals in .45 Colt. from EMF.  Not  quite consecutive serials, but close enough for shootin’ work.  I fell in love with the Hartford when I won one at EOT several years back.  That's what these are, except they have the brass grip frame, that I also like.

Ruger 5 1/2 inch bisleys.  I favor the bisley frame and the Rugers are durable and inexpensive.  With a Wolffe spring kit they aren't bad to shoot either.
