SAA owners do you shoot your 1st 2nd and 3rd gen. SAAs
and if you do how is the recoil on those old guns particularly the the first gens ?
Anyone have any pics of their SAAs.

Here is a pic of my nickel plated Colt Single Action Army with 5 1/2" barrel and chambered in .45 Colt purchase NIB ~1994.

Yes, I shot it on one or two occasions a few years ago and have put less than 50 rounds of my (mild) personal handloads through it.

I have an early 3rd Gen SAA New Frontier that I bought NIB out of an estate. I do shoot it but only with very mild handloads and I am very careful with it, but I don't holster it for fear of blue wear (though I would love to carry it). It is very accurate and the recoil isn't bad at all (.45 cal 255 gr bullet) they just kind of roll back in your hand. Really neat to shoot.

I have a third gen .357Mag that I shoot about every time I go to the range, no matter what else I take. Get some odd looks sometimes from people who just can't believe anyone would do that to a SAA! That's what it was made for, and it is fun to shoot.

Among some others I have a second generation 357 that I shoot 38's out of quite a bit. I bought it used on consignment a few years ago. The owner, store manager nor I knew it was 2nd generation untill I got it home. Had to be one of the best deals I ever got! Love the gun.
