    Let's see: The Military started going to Berettas in the 1980's so EVERY wannabee just has to have one. Then LEO's started going to Glocks so ALL the internet heros just HAD to have one. Clothes, guns, shoes, cars it doesn't matter. People don't buy what's best for them. They buy what advertisers tell them to buy.
    Fine with me. As a S&W wheelie collector it just leaves more, at a better price, for us. Let the internet heros have their fun.

    Yep.....I have my semi's, but there is always that comfort of reliability when I carry one of my wheel guns....

    Sure do not recall ever having a FTF, FTE or stovepipe from my Smith revolvers. Do not recall having to be "selective" when shopping for ammo with these either!

    +1 Nor is there a 500 round break in period nor a 'fluf and buff' that YOU must do to make them work.

    Revolvers have remained in style around here. The handgun menagerie is composed of 2/3 revolvers and 1/3 automatics. There's one lonely single shot. Revolvers are used most often. More revolvers occupy the "want" list than do automatics.
    “No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.”

    Revolvers Becoming Popular Again

    Add me the the revolver fan club. A 442 is lighter than the pocket guns , and if you load it with .357 has more power. They seldom fail, and the capacity is the same or a round less. What's not to like?

    Cool

    Since retiring from the job I have bought more revolvers and gotten rid of a couple of semi-autos.

    One of the deals was trading a Glock 19 for a S&W Model 10 and some cash.

    The last acquisition was this S&W Model 65.

    I started out with revolvers in the mid 60's and it looks like I will be ending up with them and the Hi-Power.
