    Here are my thoughts on revolvers: I’d like to start collecting a few like the smith and Wesson governor and a .357 because my understanding is I would be able to acquire several different ammos for pistols like these. Seems like others might have this mindset because they seem difficult to find.

    You can't go wrong with a good Smith revolver. There are lots of choices out there depending on what you want. I dont have any experience with the governor, but they're interesting.
    My favorites are the J and K frames. They just seem like a good fit for me.

    My all time favorite Smith is the 2 3/4 or 3 inch Kframes. Of all the revolvers I have owned I always shoot those the best! They just have a balanced feel to me.

    As cool and classy revolvers can be, I hate cleaning them so much that I have a very few. I've even sold two Pythons because of this and because they were too big and heavy for a concealed carry gun. I bought a S&W 625 about a year ago because I couldn't find a good 25 under $1200 and I like stainless.I just always wanted a .45acp revolver. I think I've got around ten revolvers but, I'm not really looking for any more.

    Ruger 101 models in 3 inch barrel. Calibers 357 and 327 mag. Both have 3 calibers to shoot in. They are built like tanks and being stainless make upkeep a breeze. I love mine

    I like guns, a lot. Revolvers are guns, I like them a lot.

    Ok I like guns, too, but I have all kinds of trouble with the grip on revolvers. Don't feel right. Not a single one I've shot. It disappoints me. :cry3:It's just not a comfortable shoot for me. :cry3::cry3:

    That's the one gun of mine I'll NEVER sell or trade. Mostly because it's an awesome little wheelie, but mostly because it was test fired at the factory in 2012 on my birthday. Says so on the little golden envelope containing the factory fired casing.
