    Every American boy needs a wheel gun...so

    Have a moderate collection of autos but not one wheel gun, so I pulled the trigger and added one. I think I am going to enjoy it. I choose this SW 627 PC 357mag, because it looks like a no non-sense all business wheel gun. Comes with moon clips. I may just use it as a house gun and not try to lug this bad boy around. Any reports from those who have shot one?

    Oh no! Be careful. You'll become addicted to the use of revolvers.

    Looks like a grand choice for a household defense handgun to me.

    I have to admit I've never cared for revolvers. It is a two-part issue for me. One is that they are too fat, seems hard to conceal. Granted, I've never actually tried before, so it is just a guess. The other thing is just aesthetics. They just look old-timey. Sort of like, why would I want to drive a Model-T when I can drive something so much more technologically advanced. I realize that is a bad comparison since a modern revolver is every bit as capable as a defense weapon as a semi-auto. But I'm just comparing on a level of appearances.

    HOWEVER - There has been a little voice in the back of my head for a while now saying that next time I buy a gun, I should make it a revolver. If nothing else, just so that I can say I have one. I've thought about trying to find an inexpensive .22LR revolver just to use as a plinking gun.

    Revolvers have soul...they hit a tuning fork in your heart and the pitch is perfect. You've chosen a nice one!!! Congrats.

    Some if it is just personal taste. I would much prefer a 27 T with a 454 over a Prius.

    Hey, I'm so much of a geezer I'd take the '27 Model T with it's original 4-banger over a Prius. I'd get by just as well locally. Well, except for the heat.

    Very nice! Revolvers are a blast to shoot. I have a Taurus .38 special that my dad gave me. I wouldn't mind a .357 revolver.

    From the movie Blood Work?

    I had the less than glamorous 7 shot Taurus .357 Magnum snubby.

    Worst, no second worst revolver I've ever owned.

    The first would be the Rossi ported .357 that froze up solid after two rounds of factory ammo.

    Then there is my NIB Stink and Wesson model 342 that froze up after a cylinder full of factory.

    Anyhow, I think that your gun will be far better quality than mine, but know that the use of the
    moon clips is probably why they couldn't get the gun to work reliably with 7 shot speed loaders.
