My Dad passed about 5 years ago. A lot of times when I think about him I pull out his old 38 revolver. What is cool is that he used the bones of his stud horse to make the grips. He had to put him down after a broken leg with this pistol. I do a lot of gun trading and to me this one is priceless.

Cool story! What is it? Looks like a Ruger Vaquero, but you said .38. I've only seen the Vaquero in 357...not .38.

It’s stories like this and pictures like this that keep me coming back to THF every night. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know your Dad, but I damn well know I would have liked him. Keep honoring him.

I did some looking and found those double action 38's were imported by Rohm of Germany.
