Fan isn't the word, but I do know how to shoot them. Part of what I am to have that knowledge.

My first gun was a Smith 357 I bought new and had to send it back after every time I put 357 rounds throught it. It worked fine with 38's but for some reason not with 357's. According to some long time gun owners the quality of today's Smith's is not up to the quality of earlier models. I sold it and now have a 9mm semi but I would like to find an older Smith 357 as I do like wheel guns but I don't like sending them back for repairs after I use them.

I have a Smith and Wesson 500 .50 caliber short barrel.
It's the true definition of a hand cannon.

I don't shoot it but once or twice a year at most due mainly to not wanting to pay a 1.00 plus per round.

I generally take these two along with me when I go out and about in the woods.

Those are some sweet heavy lead-launchers you got there. Especially like the Marlin levergun.
The SBH shoulder rig ain't too shabby either.

I also love SP101. The SP101 is currently manufactured in .357 Magnum, .38 Special, and .22 LR. Its Maximum effective range: 33 to 55 yards (30 to 50 meters) depending on barrel length and cartridge load.

My Ruger Redhawk in 357 mag is my favorite. They don't make them any more in that caliber.
