Don't forget REVOLVERS

Allow me to tell a short story. When I was probably 10 or 12 years old my Dad started letting me shoot a handgun. It was his Revelation '76' in .22lr. I had tons of fun shooting that gun during my teenage years. He even had a western style belt for it. I went through thousand of rounds for about 8 or 10 years there. Then I bought my first very own handgun. It was the new Colt 1991-A1. I fell in love with than gun, and semiautos in general. I was shooting several of my friends autos also. In the last 15 years I've bought and sold and bought and kept several more autos, most in 45 acp and 22lr. Well a few months ago, I was able to purchase 2 Rugers from a guy at a very good price. The price was really the main reason I bought them. They are a 6.5" single six convertible and a Blackhawk .41 rem mag in 6.5" also. Let me tell you, I have been having a blast shooting these guns! The singel six is just flat out fun to shoot. Period. The .41 is the only large caliber revolver I've ever had. I have been reloading for it with a friends help and shooting it more and more. I can shoot the gun very accurately. I will be trying to lay down some deer and hogs with it this year.

I just forgot how much fun it is to shoot a wheelgun. I find myself looking for more now. :D Ya'll don't forget the wheelies. They might inspire a new excitement in your shooting as they have mine.

I'm right there with you, Silent. I want a .45acp revolver in the worst way and I cannot make up my mind. The first one that I saw that I really liked was a Taurus Tracker but since then I have found a S&W that is topping the list. Decisions, decisions... :thinking:
That 1917 would be a treasure to have, Silent. There's a mint condition one on Guns America right now but I just can't afford the damage. I was hoping to get to the gun show this weekend to look around and see if I could find any but had too much work to do around the house (cash black hole).

I'm giving some serious thought to taking the Ruger Vaquero 45LC I've got up for sale and seeing how much it would cost to have it adapted to also shoot .45acp. I've read some posts that it can be done. I know they make some convertible models that have two cylinders but I'm under the impression that the cylinder in mine can be modified to shoot both. That'd be pretty sweet and I'd just keep it.
Silent, that's a beautiful pistol pack. I looked for a complete one (for a reasonable price) sometime back but never could find one. I think it's one of the more unique setups in the revolver arena. The grips on yours are awesome. :youdaman:
Docs, this is kind of weird. I have an old Rohm .22LR that I got from an uncle several years ago now. I didn't think I'd ever see another one and now yours makes the fifth one that I've come across in the last two weeks.
