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.

My favorite handgun is a S&W Model 14 K38 with a full length Aristocrat rib on it. It has been field rodded, 11 degree reamed at the barrel throat and a double action trigger job has been done. It is capable of hitting the X ring on the B16 25 yard Slowfire Pistol Target. It is the most accurate .38 revolver I have ever owned. I shoot nothing but lead cast bullets in it and I expect the barrel will last indefinately.

I also have a S&W Military & Police Model 10 w/5" barrel. It is also very accurate. The big advantage for a relaoder is, you don't have to bend over and pick up the brass.

The older S&W revolvers are more accurate out of the box than semi-auto center fire pistols. This is also a big plus in my mind. Another plus is, I don't have to bend over and pick up my empties with the wheel guns.
