I picked up the 1998 Vaquero today. .45 Colt, of course. I was lucky the original owner(s) kept it scratch free. There was some cylinder-face darkening which mostly came out with a lead removing cloth, but it will just get black again. I'll see to that. I'm carrying it (my only sidearm for the moment, so it's a carry gun) in an Uncle Mike's IWB nylon holster. It was probably made for a double-action revolver, but it fits well enough. It's stuffed with 240 gr XTP JHPs +P ammo loaded by Littlestone Ammunition.
