Only what I consider classic guns interest me. Well, all guns interest me in some way or another, but the classics are what I get enthusiastic about. Sometimes I'm afraid I've offended some of ya'll speaking derisively about the polymer, wonder-nines, hi-cap lightweights etc. I was being facetious and didn't mean offense to any one.
Admittedly, I like the six-shooter, the revolver, and if that looks remotely like a Colt Single Action Army, so much the better. I prefer guns of carbon steel, especially those with forged innards and wood, ivory, or stag grips.
I prefer my guns within a certain size range, large enough to contain six .44 Magnum cartridges, with a power level that allows quick one-hand shots and comfortable holster carry all day long.
I can tolerate the Ruger's investment cast frame, especially when color case hardened and mounted with blued steel or brass grip straps. The Colt Dragoon Models of 1848 were about the most handsome guns ever made, and if a modern gun reminds me of that look, so much the better.
I like my guns to be accurate. Accurate and with enough power to bring down a deer sized animal out to seventy five to one hundred yards.
I like open, accurately adjustable sights, without white dots, stripes or glass.
I've shot many handguns in my time. I've never turned down an opportunity to fire a gun. I've tried to learn everything there is to know about the one-hand gun.
So, if you'll just over look some of my foibles, I'd sure appreciate it.
