    Wheel guns are more attractive and more interesting than auto pistols. Of course that is just my opinion. :cool:

    I think revolvers are the beauty contestants and the pistols are the tool section. Don't get me wrong, I am a tool freak and they have great looks too, but the beauty goes to the revolver.


    (I know almost everyone on this site thinks my revolver (Rhino .357 Magnum snubby and 4") are abominations, but I can shoot as long as I can afford it without any hand problems)

    Let's keep the forum and make an effort to post here more often.
    A lot of autos have come and gone since I bought this back around Y2K.

    I've never seen the word "beauty" in a post about the Rhino before.

    I think if we petitioned we could get the forum bumped up to the front page of General Firearms like the HK forum or the Rimfire forum.

    I think wheel guns have a stronger following than HK's.

    I wrote the same thing. This used to be one of my favorite forums. Pulling out Ruger and S&W doesn't leave a whole lot of activity. Too bad.

    I thin "wheelguns" is a more interesting concept than breaking them down by brand, ..........even if I do have a few S&Ws (these are just some of the "K" frames

    The word "Beauty" in my post was distinctly not associated with the Brand Rhino.

    You made that association. Do you have "strange hidden/latent tendencies"?

    I have to try one of those Rhinos.

    How about getting rid of the 'Gun Related Clubs ' sub forum and bumping all the worthy clubs like 'The Wheelhouse' up to the 'General Firearms' forum. That would strengthen the good ones and the weak ones could be eliminated or merged into stronger related clubs.

    Hi, I am new to the forum. I like my semi-autos a lot but have always liked shooting revolvers a little better. My revolvers are: S&W model 36 (Chief Special), S&W model 19-5 (Combat Magnum), Ruger New Vaquero .357, Taurus model 94 .22LR, and Pietta 1851 Navy .36. I had a Ruger Blackhawk .357 but traded that in for the Vaquero. Have not been to the range lately due to wife's health issues but plan on getting out in the not too distant future. With the price of ammo being what it is (especially .357) I will shoot the .38 and .22 (bought when it was cheap) and hoard the 4 remaining boxes of .357 I have.

    I received my "classic" S&W Model 14 today. It has the modern key lock.

    It also has the slickest action I have ever experienced in a revolver, except for a vintage Python and Diamondback. It is much better than my vintage K-22 and my more recent 686!

    Next...to take it to the range!

    I may only feed it wadcutters!

    Gotta' love wadcutters!
    But I think we need to see some pic's of your classic and your Diamondback. I've always loved the look of the Diamondback.
