Well........ I am truly blessed!  After putting out the thought/desire to own an Open Top a fellow member here offered an 1872 Uberti in >45 Colt 7 1/2" barrel,bought it,  actually got to shoot it ONCE before the ranges in Canuckistan were shut down because of the ' bullshiite' (sic)  coronavirus. Sold a Ruger #3 custom .38-55 taking another 1872 5 1/2" Open Top in partial trade, this one is .38 special. Now have to wait for the transfer to come through. Will post pics when I figure out how. Now I want another one.......................!

Odd thing about the "real'' Cowboys" .....

They all seem to shoot .44s and .45s. They aren't the fastest but you don't want any of them shooting at you for real.

One of ours shoots"Gunfighter" with .45 7-1/2" SAAs and a 56-50 Spencer repro his wife ordered direct from Italy when she couldn't find one this side of the ocean.

They told her they didn't sell retail so she asked to speak to the boss and pled her case. It was for their umpteenth anniversary. He was so touched by her story that he made it happen.

Finally watched a couple of the series.

Mike Hawkridge is a "neighbour", which is Cariboo-speak for anyone who lives within 10-15 kms.

A few of my CAS pals are working ranchers. You can spot them from across the corral. They're the ones with the beat up hats and horse sh!t on their boots.

Don't forget the "as worn" part.  If your belt tilts down in front like a lot of them do, that will increase the angle.

YUP! I figure roughly 15degrees. Ends up straight down on strong side and 30 Degree on the cross. Depending on to amount of wealth displayed in the area above your belt buckle. Yer mileage on the treadmill may vary. Try some sample holsters before mortgaging the spread.
