Oh heck yes! I still have my 4" Colt Python I bought in 1977 for $200 new. I also like my Glock. Have had many wheel guns and semi autos. The wheel gun still my favorite.

Ruger just announced that they are reintroducing the SP101 in .327 Magnum:

Ruger SP101 Double-Action Revolver Model 5773

I still have my .357 SP101 - bought it new in 1993.

Through the years I have had several, River Black Hawk in .38, Astr .357, etc.... The latest was the best, a .500 S&W withe 8 3/8 fluted barrel. It was smoother than any .44 with muzzle brake that I've ever shot. Currently do not hav e any, but I am eyeballing a couple in black powder and another in .357.

One of my favorites is my S&W Model 638; it's always in my pocket. Another is my Ruger Blackhawk in .357 magnum with the spare magazine in 9mm. I bought an extra 9mm cylinder and had it chambered for .38 S&W. With that short case and the long .357 cylinder I can use long pointy bullets for some extra fun. The cylinder works with .38 Super as well which has the same dimensions except for the rim.

When Smith was coming out with something new every week twenty-five years ago I bought a Model 36 with a 3'' barrel and adjustable sights to be followed a few weeks later by a Model 60 with same. Now, those are real trail guns, easy to carry and easy to shoot very accurately. I limit my carry to the Model 60, however, because I don't want to hurt that pretty blue finish.

I should mention my Taurus Judge. Mine is stainless with a 3'' cylinder and 3'' barrel. Loaded with 000 Buck it carries five .36 round balls, the payload of five shots from a Colt Navy revolver x 5. We haven't had a carjacking here yet, but if we ever do......

Wish list for S&W:

Model 638 in .22 magnum (I believe that it's reasonable)
Model 638 in .32 H&R magnum
Model 649 in .327 magnum.

J-frame with 2'' bbl. and target sights chambered in .32 S&W long. Bring back the Model 30 and create a Model 630 for all of us plains drifters, woods loafers, and swamp angels.

YES wheel-gun fan!! My first revolver was a single action six Ruger .357 Magnum way back in the 1970s. Then sold that and bought a S&W model 28 Highway Patrolman .357 magnum. Also owned over time a S&W model 15 .38 Combat Masterpiece, a S&W model 10 .38, an S&W model .19 .357, an S&W model 29 .44 magnum and a Colt Trooper mark III .357. Also owned a later model S&W .357 when they beefed up all of the frames in the 1980s. They're all gone now. Wish I had them back.

I love wheelguns. They make perfect sense for those who want/need a gun, but are not willing or able to make shooting a frequent pastime. When you think about it, this probably describes the vast majority of gun owners (though a minority of those posting in gun forums). The simple manual of arms is a big plus, as it the immunity from limp-wristing, among other things. Plus, they're pretty.

In California it is considered a destructive device.

I'd rather spend my dough on a Super Blackhawk knuckle buster, blue or stainless, then add a GP100 to the stable.

Will always keep a lookout for a Colt SAA at a decent price though.

Then maybe some pre-Hillary hole S&W wheelguns ( M17, M65, 586, 686)
