    I keep getting derailed from my HD shotgun and AR purchases by nice vintage wheelguns. Looking at a S&W 640 now...

    I agree, revolvers embody the KISS principle. That's why they make an excellent BUG -- foolproof and they won't get in your way. Nothing to worry about except pulling the trigger when seconds count (if you need to use your BUG).

    Love the wheel gun... I've been carrying one for about a year now and it's just the first of many more to come. The reliability factor is what drew me to um and for that alone I'm permanently sold on um and intent on having one with me at all times.

    Folks could do a lot worse than rely on a quality revolver for serious self-defense.

    I personally own five revolvers, a S&W 642 and 629, two Ruger Security Sixes, a four inch and a six inch barrel, and a .22 single action Colt copy. I am planning to add a S&W 442, model 10 and a K-frame or three. I also want a GP100 in four and six inch and a SP101 in 2 and 3 inch. In addition to a Security Six 2 inch, Colt Python, Colt Single Action Army......actually, I want one of everything. I am a revolver guy, five revolvers, two semi's and a single shot single action Savage 101-22

    I have always liked revolvers. I have S&W .22 and .357 and a Rossi .38spl.

    I just purchased a Ruger LCR .357 magnum for my wife to carry. She loves it. So do I.
