I have also since purchased the Bond Arms Cowboy. I was able to shoot it a couple of days ago. It shoots great. I have the .45/.410. It is such a well made gun. I could not feel a thing. It certainly recoiled some but very little. The old .357 model 28 when I was a Highway Patrolman hurt somewhat with .357 loaded. It is nice that a US and even more, a Texas manufacture is the one producing such a fine pistol.
