They're making one in either .40 or .45. I don't remember which.

The last time we qualified, my buddy ran the course with two of his cowboy action .45's.
Wheel guns are a blast and the only one I currently own is a beat up old .22LR that I THINK is a Ruger...the lettering is rubbed off, but it sure looks like one. The front sight blade was removed years ago, supposedly for quick draw, but it's a good little snake gun and the kids sure enjoy shooting it.
I want to get the GSG 1911 .22LR like my father in law has. SMOOTH as silk and feels good when you're shooting it. Plus you can shoot all day long for less than $20! LOL!!
Psh, wheelguns jam ALL THE TIME. And once they do, you can't just "fix" the problem. It's out for the count. But if you service them (expensive) they won't. Don't want to get into the mfg. vs mfg. argument... S&W vs Taurus... etc.

I wanted to get a H&R Sportsman with vented rib, break-barrel .22LR revolver. It'd be my first revolver and first .22. But the good ones go for $500-600 :(

GSG is not bad. My friend, nic00taylor on youtube makes an extended basepad and loader for it.

I still haven't found a good, light pack .22 gun, rifle or pistol. The only light/low-profile option would be VERY expensive. About $1000. Ruger with a TacSol upper to make it much lighter, then I would have to upgrade it to suppressed, since it is already threaded. The Ruger SR22 would have worked, but the ergos dont work for me. I don't like the new Ruger Mk's with the shiney uppers, either. Buckmarks with TacSol uppers also work, but very expensive. Wouldn't mind, though. They are very accurate with the TacSols and light. Problem is that they are too $$$.

This one is kind of fun. I use it every year as part of my halloween costume. It's so over-the-top that I can walk around the church halloween party with it, and they all assume it isn't real. The rig is almost the best part, tied around the leg and all. 1873 Cattleman (Uberti, not Colt) with a brass frame, 7 1/2 inch barrell, 44mag and color case hardened. Least accurate handgun I own, but still fun. Yes, it is hanging from the four poster bed frame. Part of the image, ya know. :)

For actual range time, I prefer this one.

I chaired a Boy Scout fundraiser and they gave me this as a memento. Model 29-10. Great shooter.

That almost looks like my hunting gun. I always carry a backup to the rifle when I hunt, usually it's the super blackhawk. I love that thing :lmao:

4.5 barrel perfect for camping. Strong, compact not a lot of moving parts. Don't even need a holster.

Gonna pick up some Carbon 357 Magnum 80gr Glaser for the stub nose.
Velocity: 1600fps with a 4 inch barrel. Maybe then I'll hit the side of the barn.

We had a S&W featherlite .357 Magnum at the SO. Nobody wanted to carry it because the recoil was too much. Not enough grip there to really hold the dadgummed thing.

The first sidearm issued to me in the Navy was a S&W revolver. The second one issued to me was a Colt 1911. Thus, from the beginning of my time with handguns, I have learned to enjoy and appreciate ownership of these two fine types of firearms.

I have wanted to KNOW how to properly handle and become more than just adequate shooting various types of weapons. Thus, over the years I have collected many different types, makes, styles and calibers of handguns. Some were expensive, others modestly priced. I have even commissioned master smiths to build me a gun containing the components I desired.

Revolvers continue to be of value to me. Some have been visually beautiful as well as reliable and accurate. I no longer carry a revolver nor do I carry a 1911. In recent times, I have come to appreciate FNH products and alternate carrying a FNS-40 with a FNX-40.

Nevertheless, anyone who enjoys handgun ownership is denying him/herself great pleasure by not owning a revolver.

Here are mine:
