    I hate you

    Seriously... hmmmmm...

    Well my fascination with .44 Special aside, I'd still want the 21 because I am more of a traditionalist to some degree. However the 357PD is a very interesting gun and I bet it would be a joy to shoot. 41 Magnum is cool I gotta get me one some day.

    You kind of already have the Model 21 experience though with your 625. Granted no one's going to confuse .44 Special and .45 ACP, but they are pretty close coming out of a wheelgun I would imagine. Shooting a big fat slow soft recoiling cartridge out of a good revolver is a thing of pristine beauty. Then again so is shooting a big fat long hard recoiling fireball of a cartridge that could kill a moose but I digress.

    I personally just have no use for the 327. I'd take it if you gave it to me, but I'd call it a distant third compared to the other two.

    What gets my goat about the Model 21 is they set out to make the ulimate no BS combat revolver. They came so close and yet missed the mark so badly.

    The size and caliber are perfect, the fixed sights are ideal, the grip is no big deal, but I'm sorry the ultimate rough and tumble wheelgun would have a stainless finish at least as an option and a no nonsense hard black rubber grip. It also wouldn't have an internal lock that introduces something that can go wrong, and it wouldn't be an advertisement either.

    Yeah, yeah I know, I just wanted to throw it out there and maybe you would change your mind. That little prancing pony does something to ya, its like the first time you made love, you don't know weather to laugh, cry, hold her tight or push her away.
