    Man, I think I like them all, including the Governor! Revolvers are just cool and never go out of style.

    Shoot it.

    It’s granddad’s gun so you don’t care about resale value.

    May as well enjoy shooting it. It’s a beautiful gun.

    Shoot it, clean it up and put it away. Say thank you to Grandpa. God bless him.

    Anyone have an Uberti Cattleman El Patron? How would it compare to a New Vaquero in 45LC?

    There is and always will be just one. K frame S&W in 4 to 5" barrel. Nothing else comes even close.

    Hilux 1911 I have a 27-2 3 1/2 inch just like yours. Mine however has 35 years of hard miles on her. It was my off duty gun before automatics became all the rage. In my not so humble opinion the S&W mod 27 is the finest revolver ever made. Do not put that old girl in the safe. Take it out and let her roar. It would put a smile on your Grandfather's face to see you having fun with that special gift he gave you. He probably did not shoot it so you would have that pleasure. My 27 has digested many thousands of rounds, and she still locks up like a bank vault.

    I have several revolvers but these two are my favorites, a Colt SAA 45 and a S&W model 17. A3C7F2FB-290B-4553-921B-DE50FBD8E471.jpeg
    6A10F0B4-EE91-442A-8E71-FD99FEA828F8.jpeg

    I made a mistake on the model 17, it’s a model 14. Old age.

    Sort of depends on application but I do enjoy this one and it by far has the highest round count. I've won every Alabama State RimFire Challenge Mechanical division plus two World Shoots with it.
