M57 no dash
Recently there was a thread focusing on K & L frame revolvers. The N frame was something I didn't think I would be getting into but that all changed when I bought my 6" model 28-2. After that followed the JM 625 and then the 4" Model 28-2. I have been fortunate to have the 3 N frame revolvers in my collection.
Would I own another??? Well, if a nice deal on a model 25 came up..... Anyway, Lets see whatcha got...
I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

N Frames are my favorite. Their recoil taming ability make them fun to shoot.......a lot. I load pretty mild loads for everything so that I can have fun without beating up the gun or myself. The Model 929 is the latest. The .44 Magnum and the .41 Magnum are sort of twins.
Then there's the 627 Pro, 625, 625JM, and 629. I seem to like the Burris Fastfire III.
Images of scoped revolvers in gun magazines of the 70s left a lasting impression. Model 28-2, 57/58 mongrel, pre 29, and Model 25-2 converted to .45 Colt.
Can't forget the old timers. Two Triple Locks that won't win any beauty contests but were affordable and still accurate.
N-Frames have been dear to me ever since Skeeter Skelton convinced me of their attributes back in the 70's.
I'll flash a coupla interesting examples (in my opinion).

Model 21's Thunder Ranch & Heritage both .44 Special.....
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~ Hunter S. Thompson
Just the one Highway Patrolman along side the Detective.
That Obama sticker on your car really says "YES, I AM STUPID"
