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

I voted for Ruger because they are the best ;D 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.  ::) 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.  ;D ;D ;D ;D Yeee Haaaaa!

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 ;)

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  ;))
I like that place, is the Bar open?

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 ;D  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 ;D

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
