Love a good revolver. I still regret selling my .44 mag Redhawk. I have been looking around for a model 29.

I enjoy shooting them occasionally. I have a couple of .44's for hiking in bear country and blowing jugs to smithereens! And a snubbie, well because. And a .22 Rough Rider for plinking cause it's fun.

A nasty divorce forced the sale of most of my guns. My wheelguns included. A VERY nice SW 25 45 Colt and my mod 66 357. Both were just fantastic and I had to deliberate between them and my custom 1911 as to which to keep. The mod 25 especially. I was a long time finding that one.

Nice Vaquero!

The two revolvers (double-action) that I have are a Smith & Wesson 686 (stainless steel) in the .357 magnum, and the Ruger Red Hawk in the .44 magnum. Both of them have the long barrels.

My wife just bought a model 60 S&W .357/.38 3" barrel. It's a nice carry piece.

I'm actually considering selling my Glock 30S and getting a small frame .357 for general carry. I've always loved the .45 acp, but the .357 is so damn versatile.

Got a Ruger .44 Super Blackhawk my FIL bought just before he passed, and have owned a bunch of nice ones over the years. I miss the Colt Python stainless the most, but have owned the SP101 in .38 and a slew of SAA copies. A Ruger Single Six also. Looking for a hammerless Smith .357 at the moment. And that Vaquero pic has me jonesing for one of those, too.

I hear tell Colt may reproduce the Python...

I'm buying a S&W 13 .357 mag in the next few weeks. Friend of mine has it. 3" FBI version. Sweet, sweet gun. It will be my carry piece for sure.
