Ruger super six.   It's nothing special but it's fun to carry with on the tractor and attempt to shoot at small game.

Not my photos, but the same models as what I have.

The first is a Colt Police Positive .38 with a 4" barrel.

The second is a Colt Trooper .357 with a 6" barrel.

I'm surprised some of you don't like revolvers, I've always thought they looked mean. I also think they can be more fun than autos.

Revolvers rox.

They are a solid 11 on the fun scale.



I've got one in .36 and .44.

I had to give up my Uberti Cattlemans in .357Mag.

I don't have picts of my 2 .38's. 

My first is my Father's duty pistol, a Model 10 Smith and Wesson that was made some time back in the 30's (looks like Agentwhale's, 4 inch pencil barrel Hard Chromed)and a Model 36 S&W with subnosed barrel. a very good back piece. 

Innocence proves nothing

It's a pretty hot round, and compared to some other handgun rounds, is actually big.

50 cals are kind of over rated IMO. I'd like to shoot this guy in .454 Casull

Oh, I KNOW they are overrated. I just want to say I shot one. There's  no way I'd throw down the $1.2k wanted for one. Good pistol hunting round though.

Over priced for sure, pay over $1,000 for a .50 cal or just under $1,000 for a .454 ect. Video game and kids who know nothing have ruined the .50 cal.

my brother has an older 357 mag from my late great uncle.  not sure what kind, all I know is that when you shot it, you didn't just get the kick, you got a shockwave from your wrists, all the way down to your toes. 

not to mention it was dead on accurate. 



I much preferred his glock17 and the remington 1911 style 45.

Mainly because it is a good round.

When loaded to combat levels it delivers a nice hard blow, while being controllable, all packaged into fairly small, light weight platforms.

If you want to hunt with a .357 you can stoke them pretty hot, and if you run it out of a carbine, then you get a handy little carbine and cartridge.

You can also generally run the smaller, less powerful and generally cheaper .38 Specials out of the same gun. Thats what I did for Cowboy Action shooting. Handloaded .38's took way less powder than a .357, so you get more bangs out of a can of powder.

In newer models you can have more than 6 shots in your rolly. With the bigger rounds, even full sized weapons have lowered capacity. The Taurus Raging Bull, IIRC, holds 5 rounds of .454.

Which is one of my favorite training drills - I am sure most others have tried this as well.  Load your revolver with a random mix of .357 and .38 special, and don't peek before shooting.

Will very quickly teach you out of shot anticipation and recoil compensation.
