    just an investment piece

    Smart man. A solid, classic, investment firearm that is certain to continually appreciate in value.
    It's better than money in the bank.

    Very sweet indeed. I'm envious.
    I don't plan on shooting it just an investment piece
    Might want to rethink that. You have a revolver well worth shooting.

    Beautiful. Wonderful collector's piece, but still, definitely worth shooting.

    yea I have another 27 that I do shoot so I don't have a need to shoot this one (even though I probably will just because I don't resist very well). It was the end of the day and my boss was cleaning out the back room and found it said she had it for a long time and if I wanted it she would make me a sweet deal.. Next thing you know I don't get to keep my paycheck and my wife is mad but oh well I like it.

    Makes perfect sense to me.

    Very nice. It's funny how some guns become like family isn't it.

    Now that's the way to do .357 Magnum right!

    That Model 27 is so fine! The 3 1/2-inch is not so common and has a cult following. It looks bad-to-the-bone and would ride on a belt just fine with the right holster. It will also eat lots of heavy .357 Magnum loads like candy and soak up the recoil well. Can't blame you for not wanting to use that one though since it is so nice. If you don't shoot it you are more disciplined than I am. That is a revolver that is on my long-term want list which only means one could happen along at any time if the price was right.

    What barrel length is your other Model 27 sporting?

    I have a 6-inch Model 27 which is the most common length and which has given excellent service now for many years. It is my very favorite .357 Magnum in the house.

    With case and accessory goodies and in excellent condition, a 3 1/2-inch Model 27-2 (I'm only assuming it's a -2 revision) should be worth $800-$900 to the motivated buyer, even in the present sick economy.

    Pistola's old .357 ain't half bad either and worth a tidy premium due to its era of manufacture.
