Shooting from the saddle

Not sure where to put this topic, butt, here goes, if it was good enough for the Duke™, good enough for me. Just my horse dint bite back. I was test firing my new Ruger Blackhawk Convertible using the .45 acp wheel for the first time, decided to do it on my bike while on the "back 40"

Glad to see that you were motion-less, Tym.

But I will say that in Wyoming, one could get a ticket for shooting from a motor vehicle, even if both of your feet are on the ground.
Even on your own property. ATV or Motorcycle, get off the unit.
Truck, get out of the vehicle, ok to then use the window for a steady rest. But only if you first drove Off The Roadway!
No shooting from or across a roadway.

That's your land? I'd be hanging some milk jugs full of colored water from the trees and shooting at them while riding. Nice Blackhawk, BTW.

Seriously planalp!

I have a friend, who lost her brother to a 22 caliber snake pistol, while riding/crashing a motorcycle! No one ever could figure the exact details! Accidents happen. Armed or not.

Food for thought.

Its my second, i love these single action's from Ruger. Built like a big hammer and loves +P+ loads.

Every time i looked at my old Bisley i wondered what it would be like with a short barrel, and since im stocked up on .45 Colt and .45acp:



The .45 Convertible just made so much sense.

I've owned the .44 Magnum Redhawk but have never owned any of the Blackhawks. I don't know why because I really do like the looks of them and like single action revolvers.

I did pick up a Ruger Single Ten .22 awhile back and it's nothing but quality, reliability and accuracy.

Thanks for the warning, but it wont' do any good. Any food for thought I'm ever fed passes quickly through the old alimentary canal and is extruded as waste.......

I'm 53 and I've only shot myself 6 times. I figure that's pretty good.

Recent Washington Post obituary, retired veteran (age 94), had told of when he was in the 1st Cavalry (1940), a rider shot his horse in the head with a .45-caliber pistol while practicing mounted marksmanship.

"Let's be careful out there!"

Our state prohibits even riding with a loaded hunting firearm in an automobile on a roadway; don't know about on private property.

Since i have a pistol permit i can carry a loaded pistol or revolver anywhere on me or anywhere in a MV in CT, however, i still cant carry a loaded long weapon in a motor vehicle.

When we talk about laws, we have "57" States to consider individually, as your State will vary...wait, i just counted the Stars on my flag, i can only find 50...

Of course who knows what the laws on Guam say
