    recently i have left the auto scene and migrated to the wheel gun.

    my first wheel gun was a blackhawk ruger .357 which has been a pleasure to shoot &
    very accurate.
    after owning the blackhawk awhile i found a deal on a super blackhawk. now i can shoot 9mm too!

    i slowly transistoned to the S&W. i always wanted a .38spl colt like the one my dad shot but alas my money is budgeted, so i found a very nice model 14 circa early 58.

    recently i stumbled onto a very nice model 27-2. yes this is the large frame but hopefully will work out as a steady target platform.

    there's nothing like shooting a wheel gun! cocking that hammer and taking a breath just flows the testosterone!

    anyother wheel gun newbies out there?

    I've been shooting revolvers since 1977, so I'm hardly a newbie.

    Thumbs up for your choices of DA revolvers. You could not have chosen two better guns than the S&W Model 14 and Model 27.

    I got my first (and at this point, still only) revolver back in August 2009. It's a Taurus Model 85 in .38 Special.

    I like the wheel guns a lot... if I find a good deal on a Single Six, I'll have one of those, too.

    Bought my first, a Ruger SP101 .357 late summer. Been shooting it regularly this winter, mostly using .38 spl. Have put 150 rds +/- so far. It is DA, but I shoot it SA. More fun

    Love it. Now looking for a long barreled .22 Make and model open at the present.

    Been shooting revolvers from a 22 rimfire to a 44 magnum for over 25 years and very much enjoy the all. Without doubt the .357 is my favorite. BTW you made a nice choice in your S&W revolvers.

    I must confess I do own one pistol. A German made Ortgies 32 ACP manufactured in the early '30s and still performs flawlessly and has been graded to be in excellent condition from a collectors standpoint. However, the holster is another story.

    I like my SP101, 3" .357. Shoots like a dream.
