I noticed one thing on this site compared to other gun sites is that not many conversations about revolvers gets brought up. Also, how often do you see any in the classifieds? Just curious. More and more I'm getting into revolvers. Next week I will be getting a 629 no dash with the 8 3/8" barrel. You guys polymer freaks? LOL! The younger crowd does not seem to care for them but I absolutely love them! Post some pics of your revolvers if you have any. If you do not have any, you should!

The next gun I plan on getting is an NAA mini revolver. I have nothing against them! I love all guns. The only thing I actually dislike about them is the people that think "revolvers are the best bar none. They NEVER jam and are steel, not plastic!" I can't stand that attitude. They made polymer guns for a reason..., but beyond that, I'll take a revolver. Slows down your shots and can be more appropriate for hunting.

My first gun Centerfire handgun was a Dan Wesson Model 715 (.357 Mag) with a 6 inch barrel in Stainless Steel. A very,very nice shooter. I probably put 20,000 rounds through it before I sold it. I still kick myself for getting rid of it. Revolvers are fun and great guns for home defense. I just don't post pictures of firearms. I have posted pictures of some really fun paintball guns in the past though, lol.

i'm not a lover of plastic guns either, but do realize they have their place. i'm probably stuck in the past with wood stocked guns and pre internal locks and lawyer safety crap. i like revolvers and own them but just have had a more natural ability to shoot autos. i am amazed at what exhibition shooters can do with a revolver, what dedication to become that proficient.

here's a vaquero that i admire & enjoy with two chamberings .....

I love my S&W M64 no dash and I shoot it better than my semi but in a tactical situation round count a reload time doesn't compare. I wish it did.

going to have to get up a few pics but I have two revolvers.
a 4" blued S&W Model 19-3
a Taurus 6" stainless Model 669 (ported) wood grips. This is pu$$ycat to shoot even with the hottest 357 loads.


Hard to believe (pu$$sycat get edited...lol)

I did not know they made multiple calibers in .40/ .38-40. That is very nice!

I've had quite a few over the years, and like dsdmmat my first revolver was a 6" Dan Wesson 715 VH that I totally regret selling. I've had that, a stubby taurus, stubby Charter arms, Ruger Security 6, S&W model 10, Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 mag, Astra 44 mag, a totally different 44 mag stubby I can't remember the brand of, a Ruger Single 6 in 32 mag, probably 1 or 2 others I can't remember. I would like another 357 eventually, and maybe a big bore.

my all-time favorite handgun is my ruger sp-101 in .357, my .38 lcr leaves home quite often in the summer, my astra terminator .44 mag was something i'd been hunting for on gunbroker for years, my naa mini fits in any pocket, and the s&w 632 in .327 fed mag that i'll be buying next is going to be a jolly good time when i get it. oh, and i'm under 30 (and therefore not supposed to be into wheelguns)!

I like revolvers, can't own any pistols yet myself but I would like to get a snubby and a nice full barrel length revolver when I do get my permit.

Similar to the relation of 38sp/357Mag, 10mm/40S&W, 44sp/44Mag and so on. My goal is to get a revolver in the same cartridge that I have in pistols and/or rifles. I have a 357 revolver and next will be a 357 lever gun, have a 44 mag lever gun and the 44mag revolver is on the way and have the 9mm and 45ACP in my semi-auto's, now all that I need is the revolver versions. This way I do not have to buy more ammo and carry less to the range.

Revolvers for me too. Semi-autos are fun to shoot, but whem I shoot one of my revolvers, I take more time to aim and concentrate on technique, rather than just emptying the mag on a semi-auto. Hey, that saves on ammo costs too!
