      Talking Colt

      Well it has to be my 1978/6" Colt Python. Something about that gun, it's like a magic spell. I just enjoy shooting it so much. I will never get rid of that one. That will be the one they pry from my cold dead hand.

      Colt, Ruger and S&W all make some nice revolvers, but my favorite will always be S&W. It just doesn't get much better than this.

      That's a tough one. I love my S&W but do plan to eventually get a Ruger also. And my S&W is slightly older, I'm not so sure about the newer ones with the locks on them, I hear some strange things about those locks.

      Well I wouldn't worry about the lock on a fine gun like a S&W revolver. Unlock it and throw the key in the box, and forget it's there. Most all the locks can be removed, and put back in if you go to sell the gun.

      The only thing I got against S&W is they don't blue their guns anymore. I like SS but I also like blued. My new 1911 is some sort of black paint. Something about the rabbit people didn't like the way they got rid of the waste from bluing. There has to still be a market for them.

      Those locks worry me more. I too like the old blueing a lot more but the locks have to go. That hole does not belong there.

      Talking Smith & Wesson Revolvers

      Lock??? Not Blue ???? They have been making them since 1857 and I am sure you can find a blue one without a lock. I have a number of them that are blue and none with locks. Of course my newest is about 10 years old.

      My newest is older than me, so there.
      Problem is, the supply is getting drier and the prices are going up for the properly made revolvers.

      Your right about prices going up on all them old S&W, Colts. I was reading on the S&W site the other day about them locks being simple to remove and reinstall if you sell them. I don't know the guy might have been a gun smith saying that. I haven't seen one yet.

      The top is SS AND has the dreaded lock, but the two lower beauties are blue and were born long before the locks were thought of.

      Prefered revolvers

      I really don't own that many handguns. Of the revolvers, I've got 2 S&W J frames, a M-36 and a M-60. I have a Ruger Security Six, 6 inch and a Ruger Single Six, 5 1/2". I then have a Nagant M-1895 that is brand new, built in 1933. I carry all the time and the snub nosed Smiths are just the ticket, I carry them in a pocket holster in my right front pocket and can carry them all day without noticing them. I just love my Ruger Security Six, and it is the first "serious" revolver I purchased, over 25 years ago. I carried it on a number of mountain deer hunts and it is quite heavy, as well as the six inch barrel is a bugger to carry on a belt holster. You can't sit or ride in a vehicle with it. Since I discovered the Smiths, I'm always on the lookout for more, however I do have my eye on a Ruger P series semit auto. I think I might like to give one of them a try.

      Well I just got a new model 21-4, and you know something, I can't even see the lock when shooting. I forgot all about it and enjoyed my new gun. Guess what it's blued. I really like it a bunch, and it has found a home during my life time.

      My preference depends...............

      For hunting, plinking, or informal target shooting, its Ruger Blackhawk/Super Blackhawk.

      For social carrying or serious target work, its Smith & Wesson.

      All of my Smiths predate locks, and are blued.
