    Hey folks. Anyone near a Murdoch's might want to check out their sales circular.
    Heritage Arms Barkeeps for $99.99. I'd never pay full price for one, but at that
    price I had to drive into town and grab mine. Sale lasts for two more days, I believe...

    I bought mine when they first came out, so paid more than that...
    Really solid piece and VERY very accurate!

    I have several Heritage revolvers. They may not measure up to the Single Six but they sure give the Wrangler a run for the money. One of the really nice things about them is that you can order a .22 WMR cylinder for only $30, and don't have to send the gun in to have the cylinder timed to the gun like you do with the Ruger.

    I'll always treasure my Single Six, but I'll have a hell of a lot more fun with my Rough Riders and Barkeep!

    Agreed!!! They are fun! I have a SUPER accurate one that I put
    IMOP grips on, just like my old single six had.

    Yes! Another plus! LOL - and if you have ONE magnum cylinder, you
    have one for ALL your Heritages. :-)

    fun with my Rough Riders and Barkeep!

    Have you seen the new Wrangler (I forget the name) that has a magnum
    cylinder too? Haven't had my hands on one... Wife's father passed
    away in June and she inherited a TON of new 'items' so only purchase
    lately has been a Glock she fell in love with - LOL.

    We were at a cabin for fall break and went to the local gun store
    (local for that area) and while we were looking around UPS delivered.
    They opened the guns that came in and there was a 43x in a grey
    I had never seen. She loved the look, the feel, etc. And it was
    SO new she got to see it unboxed. LOL

    Anyway - we are not gun traders under normal conditions, and
    she had taken a .45 (I forget the exact model) but was a short
    barral - smaller frame - kind of commander size. We shot less
    than a magazine through it and neither of us liked it, so
    we went BACK to the store with it and she traded it toward
    the Glock. She walked out happy, and has a new EDC. :-)

    Me? I'm still carrying the Shield .40. I did get new leather
    for some others I wanted to try - I tried the Beretta 92FS
    that she inherited - too big to feel comfortable. She also
    got a CZ (a Beretta Hi Power clone, basically) - I think it's
    a CZ-75? - anyway...

    That one I like! Still bigger than the shield, but not too
    big, so I keep it in the truck as a backup... My father in
    law LOVED hogue grips, so several have them. I bought new
    wooden grips for it and it's SO much better to shoot now!

    Only issue is if I want it to be an EDC I need to get
    bigger magazines... It has 2-10 rounds. Still more than
    the Shield holds though...

    Sorry for being long winded. :) First time back in months
    and I tend to be verbose - LOL

    That IS handy. I have a couple of the .22 WMR cylinders, but only because I want to have one available in case my son is using the other. It's VERY handy to have them interchangeable between guns, unlike with the Ruger where they seem to need to be timed to the specific gun.

    I've seen them at gun shows, basically trying to grab a piece of Heritage's market share. I've got a couple of the Wranglers, nicely made and definitely worth the couple of extra bucks in price over the Heritage. I haven't sprung for any magnum cylinders though, kind of doubt that I will. Also have an older Single Six, that is a little tack driver. With mechanical assistance (ie some sort of rest) can put all six rounds into a single ragged hole at 7 yards.

    Only issue is if I want it to be an EDC I need to get
    bigger magazines... It has 2-10 rounds. Still more than
    the Shield holds though...

    i generally carry a PT145 Pro. I like the size and the double stack gives me 10 rounds of .45 in the box and one in the tube. Spare mag gives me 21 rounds of 230 grains "leave me the hell alone" motivation. When I know I'm not going to be getting in and out of a vehicle I'll carry my S&W Model 645. It's defintely bigger than the Taurus but I have a better sight radius and the Wilson Combat mags bring me back up to that 10 round magazine capacity. The 645 definitely shoots better than the PT145 but then again a couple of inches extra on the sight radius makes that difference.

    Have a couple of 1911A1s that are suitable for carry but for some reason I feel more comfortable with either the Taurus or the SW. I guess the fact that they're both DA/SA as opposed to SA only is part of it.

    Obviously I prefer the .45 as my primary carry. Backup varies but is always DA only so I don't have a mechanical safety to worry about. I figure if I have to resort to the backup then I'm not going to want to have to disengage a safety because the fertilizer has already impacted the ventilation unit. Son carries a 1911 in 10mm (but in Condition Two - WTF!? :) ). I'm sure the 10 has better terminal characteristics than .45 ACP, but I guess I'm just a traditionalist at heart.

    Sorry for being long winded. :) First time back in months
    and I tend to be verbose - LOL

    Yeah, I tend to get that way myself after a shot or two if Irish and beer. Hell, that's what these BBS things are designed for anyway, right?

    Super Wrangler - saw one Saturday at a gun show. The original Wrangler does
    NOT use the mag cylinder... So you'd have to buy a new gun, but since
    when was that a bad thing? :-)

    Looked up the serial number, and it was manufactured during the
    "10 round max" period.

    I looked again at the show at a Shield Plus... Bought my wife
    an LCP Max to replace her LCP II, for the extra rounds, and she
    wants to upgrade my EDC as well. The thing that jumped out at
    me on the Shield Plus is the 'normal' sights - I'd like to
    upgrade to something nicer. The max has tritium.

    Yes, I can upgrade the sights myself, but looking at maybe a
    Performance Center model instead, but nothing decided yet. My wife
    has a Sig P365 as well, and I like it too...

    You mentioned carrying a .45. She has a 1911 clone she inherited
    (I think it's a Springfield) and I bought her some IMOP grips
    to replace the hogue - she likes it now. :-)

    YES - very much so!

    Super Wrangler, eh? Will have to take a closer look next time I get near one. Was at a gun show just this past weekend, picked up a 75th Ruger Anniversary 10/22 in stainless. Looked really nice and the price wasn't bad at all. They also had a 10/22 60th anniversary model with some bells and whistles but the price was more than I was willing to give up.

    Also picked up a Wild Bill Hickock tribute Rough Rider that my wife liked. Nice thing about that one is that it came with LR and WMR cylinders and the WMR cylinder is engraved with an Aces and Eights motif. I see that Heritage Mfg is upping the game on their revolvers, they have models with adjustable rear sights now. Might be worth taking a look at sometime down the road.

    You mentioned carrying a .45. She has a 1911 clone she inherited
    (I think it's a Springfield) and I bought her some IMOP grips
    to replace the hogue - she likes it now. :-)

    I resisted the 1911 bug for quite some time. Was quite satisfied with my PT145 and my SW model 645. Still think the 645 is a better design as a matter of fact. I got bitten however when a co-worker of my wife's father passed and she was selling his guns to help pay for the funeral. One of the pieces as a Norinco 1911A1. Got it for $200. Talk about a gateway drug... I now have at least three "unadorned" 1911s as well as three commemoratives (two Trump commemoratives and one Wyoming commemorative, with gold inlays).

    I seriously need to update my inventory sheet. I had 88 entries when I left NY, but that was 12 years and many purchases ago. I'm sure I'm way over 100 pieces now and some of them are quite impossible to replace.

    near one. Was at a gun show just this past weekend, picked up a 75th
    Ruger Anniversary 10/22 in stainless. Looked really nice and the price wasn't bad at all. They also had a 10/22 60th anniversary model with
    some bells and whistles but the price was more than I was willing to
    give up.

    My first gun when I was seven years old was a Browning SA-22, Belgium made. Grew up with that and still have it! Since it was 'my right arm' for so
    long, I never really got into the 10/22's.

    Also picked up a Wild Bill Hickock tribute Rough Rider that my wife
    liked. Nice thing about that one is that it came with LR and WMR
    cylinders and the WMR cylinder is engraved with an Aces and Eights
    motif. I see that Heritage Mfg is upping the game on their revolvers, they have models with adjustable rear sights now. Might be worth

    Not looking for adjustable sights speciically, but I agree they seem to
    have upped the RANGE of their offerings anyway. :-)

    LOL - nice! Our youngest son likes his 1911's. I like them okay, but I
    don't have the bug. :-) If I have a bug at all it's SAA types (Wranger, Heritage, etc.).

    I enjoy single action revolvers a lot myself. Have several in a variety of calibers from .22 on up to .45 Colt. My prized SA acquisition was a pair of Ruger Single Action Shooting Society Vaqueros in .45 Colt, stainless steel with sequential serial numbers. My brother in law was VERY much into cowboy action shooting and tried SO hard to get those away from me. Have some very nice looking .38s and .45s in case-hardened finish as well.
