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...
ohhhhh...such pretty guns in that photo !

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.

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.

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:
