I just got rid of my last two wheelguns...two Taurus revolvers...both .38 Special...one snubby...one 4 inch barrel...have all semi-autos now, but will get two more wheelguns in the future. One .357 Mag...and one .44 Mag.

I love mine. Feels comfortable in your hand, packs a punch, and has a nice look to it. Well worth the investment. IMO

Can't see the pic, but what kind do you have? And about how much did it cost?

Duh...Sorry I forgot.
Its a .38 with a 4" barrel. I bought it about 10 years ago,it was less than $200. Which was one of the main reasons I got it. Not sure what the cost of one now is. But I am willing to bet it still cheaper than a S&W. And shoots just has well,and it is every bit as durable. After 10 years I bet you can count the number of scratches on it on one hand,never had a miss fire in all these years either.

I have a Ruger Super Blackhawk. I have had and shot the same gun for about 20 years. It is very accurate. It is nicely weighted and has a wooden grip for the kick/roll back.
If you are not familiar it is a 44 magnum with a 9 or 10 inch barrel. It is kind of heavy to point, but the weight is an excellent counterbalance for the punch.
I like the wooden handle for the slide. I tried a rubber grip but it just felt funny.
I would have to say a 44 magnum is the only pistol to have. I have shot 357's that are good too, but really no comparison when it comes to stopping power or just plain fear when it is looked at. As far as handguns go, there is nothing more frightening than seeing a 44 pointed at you. The round is the size of a marble.

^Difficult to conceal though right? It's not like you can hide a 9 inch revlover in your coat..but for home protection I'm sure it's great. I'll look into firing one. Thanks.

This what you were talking about ashley?



Single action too, eh?

Thats the one, but mine is black. A fantastic gun, the single action is great too. Double action seems odd.
You know with the roll up on the 44 magnum it practically cocks itself on the way down. You can almost call it a double action. It's a nice gun, you should buy or at least shoot one. You will like it.
I live in california so concealing a gun is impossible(legally). Home protection it is O.K.
I think my Winchester defender with pistol grip is better. 9 round, semi auto, pump action shotgun. Now that is a nice piece of security.

[Edited on 1-6-2004 by ashley]Sorry about the double post. Im not trying to get points, besides you guys take most of em away anyways.

Like I was saying, If you want to hit what your aiming at buy a long barrel revolver. What good are 9 shots in the dark when you can put 1 in the red.

This brings up a pretty good point. First if concealment is what you want....don't get a revolver,and a litle .25 semi is what you want. Put it in your pocket and no one will know its there.
Anotherr that I think is worth mentioning is that you/people need to be very aware of just how powerful your gun is. If you live in an apartment or condos, a .44 or anything bigger is not what you want for home protection. If you miss,it will go through the wall,and there is a chance of hitting the person next door. The first two rounds in my .38 are snake shot. It is not likely to kill anybody,and won't go through the walls. If they get after being hit with snake shot,then the poor fool will get nailed with a high velocity +p hollow point. They won't get up after that.

Rather than start a new post I'll add to this one!

We have quite stringent gun laws here in the UK, but I have a shotgun and firearms licence.

We're prohibited from handguns and repeaters here, so in the home I have a Winchester 101 O/U, a Browning 425 O/U and an 1887 Cogswell & Harrison SxS. All are for game shooting, but one hell of a deterrent for any 'wannabe' burglar.

Hopefully nobody will put one to the test.

Not true. There are a plethora of small hand guns substantially more power full than the .25 When we think of concealment, we always think of "pocket" guns. Mid sized revolvers and semi autos can also be concealed comfortably. And you don't sacrifice stopping power.

I love wheel guns. I now only have a Rossi .357 mag, 4" bbl., but did have a S&W model 586 and a S&W 686; both very nice revolvers.
The Rossi is a good weapon, lighter than the Smiths, feels good, nicely balanced, and cheaper. Their steel is purer now, and the weapon is almost as good as a Smith.
