    I saw an Uberti open top at the gun store yesterday. It's a .38spl. The look and feel of it was just elegant. It was priced close to $499, which was a little out of my price range, but it sure was classy looking.

    Yup. I'm a semi-auto guy, but every time I pick up my '61 Navy repro
    it puts a smile on my face.


    All the best of the '51 Navy and '60 Army combined in one package.

    Plus 1.. I have only 1 revolver, it is a Ruger Old Vaquero .45lc and everytime I pick it up I giggle like a schoolboy. I love the old ones.
