    I think the time, money, and effort I would have to put into becoming proficient with a type of gun I will never carry is better spent on guns that I selected, bought and carry for defense everyday.
    I collect ammo, not guns.

    +1 I've been doing just that for over 50 years. Guns, all kinds of guns, are "second nature" to me. I'm proficient with them all. Like many here, I was raised around guns, it's really that simple.

    Well, some of us have single action revolvers for hunting. Some have them for a different range gun. Sometimes it's nice to take those guns out just for fun.

    Let's face it, my Ruger Super Blackhawk is my best looking gun by far. Revolvers, especially SA ones, have this look and feel to them that other firearms just don't have.

    Occasionally I'll carry one of my Colt's in a Mernickle PS6.

    A single action revolver?

    Wow.

    The fact that this idea was not shot down on the first page is sad...

    The fact it went on for over 6 is just funny.

    I have carried a SAA revolver over several periods for a number of years. I have been shooting them off and on for several decades, and I am confident I know how they work and that I can hit what I aim at. Last one I carried was an imported copy of a Colt SAA in stainless steel, in .45 Colt. Carried the usual 5 rounds, using semi-wadcutter lead bullets at a bit over 900 FPS. Yes, it was only 5 rounds, but the first 5 targets would have been in deep trouble. I also carried an ammo wallet with 10 more rounds of the same ammo.

    These days, I usually carry a small DA revolver, either a S&W Chief Special in .38 or a Rossi 462 stainless .357 magnum...but I am thinking about buying another SAA.

    It's harder to conceal ignorance than to acquire knowledge.

    beg to differ sir; that's not elite at all; that's pathetic. I would hate to be one of these of limited skill to only have enough experience and background to only be well heeled with a modern gun.

    To that I say those of us who know and understand, use, and can carry a firearm of any type are the elite. The rest are greenhorns. See my signature below.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Elitist? Maybe, but not irrational.

    I'm at odds on this one. For those that are truly more adept with a SAA revolver, sure. For everyone else, probably not, but it's a free country and one can carry whatever they please. Would I ever suggest one for carry to the average carrier/student? No.

    That being said, this one looks like it's going down hill (too late?) at a pretty good clip.
