Re: What is your age group?
I'm 26, and love wheel guns. Mostly newer ones though.

Mr Right, you are right. With age does come wisdom. I haven't made the move to auto's and don't think I will. With good speed loader and a good S&W.....that's all I need.

which is why I ordered the Model 642 smith.

I am 47 and I have 4 semi autos but I just purchased the Ruger GP100 and the SP101. If I would have shot the Rugers before I purchased the semi autos I probable would not have. I shoot the revolvers much more accuretly that the semi autos.

At 51, I have spent my entire adult life in the military or LE. I like them all. I have S&W and Ruger revolvers and steel and polymer auto's. My carry guns are Glock's, simply because for me they do what they do better than anything else. I carry a fighting gun because if I end up in a gun fight, that is what I want.

WOW! I started this thread over six years ago. I was still working then, and now just turned seventy-five in November. Still have my looks, too!
I made a similar remark to my doctor, to which he replied, "And your sense of humour."

I am 80 last april, my doctor told me to keep doing what I am doing. I took his advise and two weeks ago bought another revolver, Ruger Blackhawk 45 colt con v. I like all kinds of guns but always have been hung up on the wheelguns. My earliest memories are of my fathers Colt 45 SAA with genuine ivory grips.

I'm 75, with LOTS of arthritis. Magnum recoil is no longer an option, nor is an eleven-ounce +P .38 Special. I carry an all-steel no-dash Smith 640 (rated, according to the etching inside the frame, for +P+), loaded with Remington +P 158-grain LSWCHP. I can shoot it comfortably and have great confidence in its ability to save my elderly bacon in most situations. My house revolver (I also have a 20-inch side-by-side double 12 gauge) is a Smith Model 10-5 with the same ammo as the carry piece.

Hello, am 61, a widow, just got my first hand gun, a Walther PK380.

Really like revolvers but like the auto's also. I carry each about equally depending where I am going.

Well Bob, wisdom like fine wines can mature with age but only if the grapes were good to begin with.

I just turned 50, but I don't feel that old.

Turned 64 this year. Feel pretty good,,, till I see a picture, (Who is that old man! Can't be me!). Cameras are not my friend. No stereotypes as far as preferences. EDC's either an M&P Shield or a J frame. Collection's about 50-50 as well. Like em all and shoot em all, some more than others.
