I know it seems like a 2" .44 mag would be a real monster to hold onto with full magnum loads, but in reality.......well in reality it's much worse, haha. For me and this gun it was love at first sight and it's one of the sexiest pistols I've ever laid eyes on. It's pretty fun to shoot with .44 special loads, but every once in a while I'll feel like load'n it up with magnums and let'n the dog off the leash. Loads of fun!
Here's a fun little shooter and something you don't see every day...
Taurus Model 905 SS2 9mm Snubbie
This is a great little revolver. I bought it a year or so back 'cause I was intrigued by the thought of a 9mm revolver. It's a lot cheaper to practice with than .357mag or .38 special. Pretty damn accurate too for a snubbie.
OK...who here likes a Magnum revolver ?! Sometimes, you want the flame, loud boom, and knockdown power of a kick butt cartridge like a .357 or .44 Magnum !! ( Ya know ya do )
S&W Model 629... .44 Magnum/Special... 4" barrel... stainless steel
S&W Model 13... .357 Magnum / .38 Special... 3" bull barrel... factory nickel plated
In another life, I must have been a cowboy...
COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY...45 Colt...4 3/4" barrel w/color case hardened frame
RUGER BISLEY VAQUERO...357 Magnum...5 1/2" barrel in high gloss stainless steel
While Browning is famous for it's rifles and semi-auto pistols, Browning has never been known to produce a revolver. But, Browning owners have been known to own a revolver or two from another manufacturer.
So, let's see a few pics of your favorite wheel guns...and hear the story behind them !!
Thank you Sir.
My local dealer had to track it down for me and ordered it from a distributor. They don't make too many of them, but they're not too hard to get your hands on.
My Pop's matching set of Colts...
Single Action Army, .45lc
These beauties have consecutive serial numbers and have never been rolled...
Here's one he's has for a while...
Single Action Army, .38-40
Here's his S&W model 66, .357mag...
His Ruger New Model Single Six, .22lr...
Your Father has great taste in revolvers SNIPER !!
Yes he does Sir,
This is a Ruger Police Service Six chambered in .38-Special. I punish the dog-schidt out of it with handloads that equal .357-Magnum pressures and it is as tight and accurate as the day it was built.
I load #358429 hard casts over 12.5-gr of Alliant 2400 (I've gone as high as 14.0-gr) and this revolver sings. I got it cosmetically worn but like new inside for $175 cash.
And my big ol' N-Frame Model 28-2 Highway Patrolman which has one of the best triggers of any revolver I've owned (which is a bunch).
I have one or two more for later posts....
Very nice nitesite!
I love those fancy grips...
Very nice revolvers gentlemen !!
+1 rep for ya both...
looking at all these pics makes me want to get a revolver!!!
nudge, nudge.... I think you should...everyone else is doin it....
If shooting something similar to my rich deep blue S&W Model 14 Target Masterpiece in .38 Spl with its wide target trigger, wide target hammer, Patridge front and adjustable rear sights, and full underlug doesn't bring a smile to the face of anyone who shoots it well then, I guess it's hopeless.
These are my revolvers:
New Model Blackhawk 38/357 mfg. in April 1977.
New Model Single Six 22 cal. mfg. in Sept. 1977.
Colt SA model 1873 Frontier Peacemaker 44-40 caliber.
Colt SA model 1873 Frontier Peacemaker 45 Colt caliber.
Colt 9Replica) of an model 1851, 36 cal. Cap & Ball. mfg. 1997. Never been fired.
That is my revolvers. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
