    Lever Actions & Single Actions...just thinking

    I love carry guns but lately I've been really wanting a .357 lever action and a single action gun to tag along. I've agonized whether to get blued or stainless for the handgun. It has to be blued for the lever action. Anyway, played with some pics to get them all lined up side by side to compare.

    And I wondered, how many of you put pics of guns you have or want as the background on your PC desktop?

    Anyway, here's some minor eye candy...

    Blued or stainless, which do you like best? That would be the one to get. Fun choices, let us know what you decide.

    I picked up a Marlin 1894C in .357 - love that gun! Very accurate, and very fun. Make sure you clean it out really good if you give it .38's so you don't build up residue in the chamber before going to the longer .357's. I also recently picked up a baretta stampede. Haven't had a chance to take it out and break it in though - it is in .45LC.

    They all look like good choices. I enjoy my SA revolvers. Might have to look into a lever gun now too.

    Well, right now I've got pics of the .50 I'm putting together. Which is kind of just torturing myself, because I'm not going to be allowed to shoot it for a while.....

    I've got a picture of my firearms that has been my deployment background, spent hours staring at it...

    Anyway, I like Uberti Single actions, and am gonna get a .357 Marlin lever action soon, I'd go with blued on both fronts, but that's just me. A nice coachgun would also fit into that collection nicely.

    I change my desktop every week. Three times a month, I put up pretty pictures for my wife. On the twenty-eighth of the month to the seventh of the next, it is a handgun.

    She tolerates it....

    BTW, good choice to have a long gun and a handgun for the same cartridge.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I can't put pics on my PC at work so at home I usually have a pic of the next gun I want or if I've seen a neat gun pic from a forum I put it up. I have my kids and this one that I keep coming back to. It's how I feel a lot:
