    above said question.

    For me: Colt Python. Reason being, toy guns were plentiful when I was a boy. Particularly cap guns that were revolvers that popped those red plastic moonclips in a steel cylinder. The guns actions usually broke within 2 days of buying it. Usually I had a snub nose .38 or a cowboy gun....but one day in the toystore I got one labeled "Magnum" Not a snub nose barrel, but a longer one with a vented rib and a full underlug under the barrel. Daddy came home from work and I showed him my new gun. He took it in his hand and said "that's a magnum" Something really unique and powerful looking about it.

    Having said that, if I think a little more historically I think S&W N-frame .357 Magnum with a 6 inch barrel. A long barrel mammoth revolver. The original frame built for the first magnum gun in .357 in 1935.

    The first thought that popped into my mind was .44 Magnum. The second thought that came to mind was a large bottle of whisky! As Jack said, I guess I'm just made that way!
