Here's an older hand gun (late 1960's-early 1970's) you don't encounter every day, PopBear's Hawes .45 Colt. The old gun shoots great. I was able to put three rounds of the Magtech Cowboy Loads into a big jagged hole at about 10 yards. Really good pistol shooting for Hillbillybear.

Yes, I remember the Hawes single actions. This one is the target model with adjustable sights. I had a .44 mag fixed sights. Actually, a very good quality single action copy made by J.P.Sauer in Germany.

J. P. Sauer.... same folks that make Sig Sauer auto pistols? I guess I'll hold off on making a snarky remark about where the other 47 rounds hit then

Would appear Popbear knows at thing or two about which guns to trade for.... is that a Bisley style grip?

Yeah I was going to suggest he shoot a whitetail with it before the season runs out... those adjustable sights would make that a cool hunting rig..... but then I remembered he has that new .340 Magnum to try out on our armor plated deer....

Maybe in a few more years he will get past his magnum phase.... deer hunting with the Hawes would really show some panache....

I might just do that with the Hawes. Oh, and real men shoot .340's

Yeah the Old Phardt can trade a gun once in a while. I don't know about the Bisley grip I'll have to do some more checking on that.


Oh, the Hawes is heavy as the devil. If you run out of ammo it'd make a great club.

That grip looks exactly the same as the grip on the Hawes Marshall that I had. It's a rosewood laminate extended grip.

My Hawes was heavy also but it was pretty trim. I think that the reason it was heavy, despite its size, was because it was all forged and machined. Really was quite a fine single action.
