The Paco Command Center is enjoying one last burst of color before the cold weather sets in.
With respect to purely man-made beauty, my Ruger Blackhawk .41 Magnum came in last week, and the missus and I went down to Virginia Arms in Manassas to pick it up (their web site is still under construction, but it's got the important information up: location, hours of operation, etc.) Incidentally, I highly recommend Virginia Arms; the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the prices on the items I've bought, to date, have been considerably lower than the MSRP reflected on the Smith & Wesson and Ruger web sites.
Here's the newest addition to the Paco armory:
Why a Ruger single-action? Because...
1) they're fun to shoot;
2) this one's in my favorite caliber;
3) the balance is perfect;
4) I can now work on my spinning and fast draw.
Although I doubt I'll ever come close to this guy:
The shop has a large inventory, not only of new guns, but also including a nice selection of pre-owned weapons being sold on consignment. They had a particularly fine Walther P-38 that I confess to drooling over. It looked pretty much like this...
Maybe next time.
