    I have no problem with "Cowboy Shooters" - at all.

    It's just that you can probably count the number of people in New England that enjoy that sport on one hand.

    And even if there you were one, why not a Ruger Vaquero ?

    They're first class and are on the Roster.

    I'd like one myself, but simply because I enjoy retro.

    Conversion revolvers are not on the Ma approved list so you'd have a hard time finding a dealer willing to sell you one but that doesn't mean you can't legally own one. Making your own would be expensive and having a gunsmith do it if you're not handy would be even more expensive. Finding one for sale privately in Ma would be the best bet but unlikely. I like the way they look and would like to have one for that reason alone.

    Sometimes you want to go full authentic. As good as a Vaq is, some guys still spend $1,000 or more for a Colt. Others shoot conversions.

    There are more than a handful of CAS in NE. Not as much as a decade ago, but they are out there.

    This is MA. The legality of owning (or doing) anything depends on how wealthy and well connected you are.
    Hell, with enough connections you can even get drunk, drive off a bridge, and leave a hooker to drown

    Me ? Even my legally purchased, locked and properly stored guns probably have me in violation of some obscure, undecipherable regulation. If not, they're working on it on Beacon Hill, I'm sure of it
