    Let's see, 3 single actions with basically the same grip frame, 2 double action revolvers built on the same frame just in different calibers, yah that's a winning list:upeyes:

    Yeah, I'm not sure who came up with it, but its certainly redundant.

    While both are legendary revolvers, having both the 27 and 29 on the list makes no sense at all.
     
  5. That was the one that really stuck out to me as well.

    I agree, although the HP and 1911 are quite a bit different.

    Quite true, but, if you have fired one, firing the other is not exactly a "novel" experience.

    BTW I too have all but the Walker.

    Agreed. I haven't made a list, but most of those wouldn't be on it.

    Very true

    The HP is just cool because it was the first double stack and the 1911 is well, the 1911. :cool:

    What???? No PPQ listed? How dare anyone make a list without mentioning the PPQ? Alright PPQ fanboys, I mentioned the PPQ in the thread so now y'all can hijack some other thread.
    Back to the original topic. How in the hell is anyone supposed to have access to or shoot a Walker? I know they exist, but more likely to see a unicorn before being able to shoot the Walker. Need to make a list that is a stretch goal- but at least attainable.
