Re: Wyatt Earp's Colt SAA up for auction

Still the most comfortable .44 Magnum handgun I have ever shot, thanks to that long barrel. They were cool alright and wish i still had it but i found...

As far as long barrels when Ruger came out with the ten inch SB i bought one for myself and a buddy, we both ended up trading them for shorter barrel ones. :)

I`m sure it would be just fine for as long as i live but i thought a discussion about it would be interesting.
A light peen would probably be the best method. :)
