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.
