    Wow! That is quite the collection.

    Revolvers are a must-have in any gun collection. I have a little s&w 442 in my small, but growing collection.

    Are all those 2 1/2-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame Magnums of some description or the other, 1 old 3011?

    I started out one day to make one of those handgun "wheel" displays that used to be so popular over on Smith & Wesson forum, featuring only the .38 Special revolvers kept around here but couldn't really get the lighting right so ended up with a pile. There are "20-something" .38 Special Colt and Smith & Wesson revolvers in the pile, representing every decade of the 20th century. No revolvers were harmed in creating the pile.

    Hey, there are a few 4-inchers in 1 ol' 3011's hoard and maybe even a 3-inch Model 66, but can't tell for certain about that. Besides, when touching off full powered .357 Magnum ammunition, even the 2 1/2-inch Model 19 or Model 66 delivers an ample amount of "swat" downrange on target. And, being K-Frame Magnums, they hold six rounds rather than the five rounds that these newer runt .357 Magnum revolvers hold.

    And, of course, the combination to the safe.

    Might be best to not go pokin' around into things that you've got no business pokin' around in.

    I just picked up my FIRST revolver ever in over 11 years of owning firearms. Got a 4" S&W Model 28 from Gunbroker for a decent price yesterday. I'll post pics when it's in house.

    Actually, rather than small .357 Magnum revolvers that is the way to do .357 Magnum.

    Yeah, I shot a pocket S&W .38 at the range one day when I was there with my son. Another gent was shooting it, I asked him what it was (darned if I can remember the model now, but it was really light!, had a groove for a rear sight, never shot a gun with one of those before), next thing you know I was shooting the thing. Even shooting .38 spl rounds out of that little gun, the recoil was unexpected. I hit had five center of mass hits slow fire at about 7-8 yards but it sure was interesting. I don't think I'd want to shoot something like that all day. Not a range gun. I wouldn't even think about shooting .357 mag rounds in one of these lightweight revolvers out right now. That's for the masochists out there.

    I've always liked FS handguns. I just sold a M&P 9c because I couldn't shoot it as well as my FS M&P 40. Back when I had some 1911's, doh why did I ever sell them, I had all government models except one that was a commander size. All were steel or SS frames. Just don't like these tiny guns. OK, nuff said.

    The Importance Of Having A Revolver

    I have an LCR with the XS tritium front sight that I recently bought as a bedside/truck/quick errand gun when my XD-9 isn't completely warranted and it is a fabulous gun. I also have a 2" S&W model 64 that is more of a Sunday gun/safe queen just due to its age and sentimental value. These two guns will never replace my XD-9 but they both have a permanent spot in my CC rotation.
    Picture shows (l-r): LCR, model 64, and a friends colt detective special.

    Ok between Buckeyes picture and bmcgilvary picture, I have either died and entered the pearly gates of revolver heaven. Or I have died and gone to the other place, because I know I will never have such a collection of fine revolvers.Thats just serious torment there. Guys those are great looking guns. WOW is all I can say.
