Default Revolvers or Semi-Autos; what's your cup of tea?

Revolvers or Semi-Autos; what's your cup of tea?

I'm a revolver fan at heart. I've got them all the way down to a late 1800's 22 short all the way up to a modern .454 Casull...

I like 'em!

Never been a big pistol fan, I've got a couple semis and a couple of revolvers.

For just throwing lead, I like the semi autos, but if I'm really attempting to shoot well, I like a revolver better, they seem to me to be esier to hit with.

I've thought of getting a .45 for the last couple of years, but just haven't bought one, and I'd like to have a small .357 to keep in my truck, but damn, for the price of most pistols, I could buy a rifle.

I'll check them out.

I keep an eye on the Swap and Sell at GON, but seems everyones idea of a good deal is a lot different than mine. Most people's used prices are not much less than retail. Saw a Ruger 45LC, the guy first wanted 500, quick check at a local dealer had it listed for 498, not much of a deal


The best deals seem get snatched up within a couple of minutes.
