    Pretty excited, got to the US after 15 months of immigration process and got these for me and my wife today...2 x Cimarron .45 colt "pistolero", 4 3/4" barrel. Shoot great, a new experience since in Australia I only had rifles. Could not be happier with Cimarron, ordered these through Cabelas who were also great to deal with getting them to North central KS from Glendale, AZ. :thumbup:

    Thanks guys, I arrived in November but I couldnt wait to get myself a pistol and Cimarron have always been something I have wanted. Got to say that I love Kansas firearm laws, only downside is I can't conceal carry till I sit my citizenship.

    Congrats! There is nothing like the feel of your own pistol in your hand! LOL:eek:

    Now you need a nice 4" jigged bone trapper to go with those.........

    PS- Not to stray of the subject but if you are going to CC, find a good instructor and start training now.....Particularly the basics. That way when you are ready to apply you are way ahead of the curve.

    Have fun with those, my cousin's mother-in-law has one. They are a blast to shoot, lot's of fun target shooting has been done with the old single actions.

    Thanks guys, I sure love single action arms and older action carbine rifles...when it gets closer to me getting citizenship I will look into a good 1911 (Likely a Springfield TRP) to carry in 45 acp. I have since posting this put a 50 box through them, every shot went as it should and it is quite accurate from the 35-40' line we set up. My wife had a blast shooting hers, even if she was a little scared at first. :p

    I could be the Australian in America "Quigley"...but someone has to send me a Sharps rifle to fill that picture! ;) *hints*

    WELCOME to the Land of the Free!

    Reasonably close to free, anyway. Many of us grouse a lot (myself included) and our liberties are certainly neither absolute, nor as close to utopian perfection as I believe we should be... but I truly believe we have it pretty good.

    Nothing wrong with rifles of course, but there's no reason any (reasonably) sane, law abidin adult shouldn't have pistols as well if they jolly well please. Enjoy them.

    Nice pair of pistolas there! Have you gotten full leather rigs for them as well? Doing any Cowboy Action Shooting yet?

    I know you're already here, but I wish you and your wife (plus kids) "Welcome" to the USA!
