Anyone else actually CARRY a SAA clone?

Living in an OC state, sometimes I just can't resist the temptation to carry my Peacemaker clone either in OC or CC mode in a shoulder rig...(yeah, I know, no such thing as a CC SAA).
The front sight is filed for 60 yd. center mass shots w/cheap "Cowboy" ammo ...and it just feels better in my hand than my "new fangled" 1911.
after 20+ years, this gun has more than proven its self reliable, i've timed it and tuned it to +/- 3# trigger pull.....plus a 255gr. .45 LC slug leaves a heck of a hole.
am I alone here, or does anyone else (occasionally) carry a single action revolver? (mostly during winter)

I have several Colt clones and several Rugers. They are farm-carry, or woods walking guns.
OC is prohibited in my state, and my concealed carry is either a 357 J frame or a Charter Bulldog 44 in my pocket.
But I do love the feel and balance of a 4 & 3/4" SAA. Comparing one to a Ruger Blackhawk is like comparing a Ferrari to a Mack truck.

Nothing wrong with it, especially if you shoot it better than anything else.

The odds of getting into a gun fight are pretty low (unless you live in Chicago) and even if you do the likelihood of having to reload is about ZERO...

I mainly carry a 1911 but do have a very compact Freedom Arms 97 in .41 Magnum with a 4.25" barrel and round butt that hides easily and is sometimes carried in the woods...

since acquiring my 3.5" Shop-Keeper Peacemaker from Cimarron, I carry it 5 nights out of 7.........1st shot is as fast as my 1911, and it consistently hits 5" steel plates at 25 yds, so in a carjacking or mugging, i'll be ok.

if you count BP cap and ball I carry in the woods quite often either my '58 Rem replica or my ROA. believe me they are powerful enough for anything I'm likely to cross in this area.
