    Stainless Collection

    My revolvers are all stainless. My only performance center model is my 625 PC. I thought it was going to be my favorite, but I can't believe how much I enjoy my 629-5.

    All the crap people talk about MIM parts the trigger on my 629 is the best out of the bunch!

    I really like the 5 inch full lug barrel. I loaded some light load 44 special rounds and the gun just became a tack driver. What a fun gun to shoot.

    Those same light loads allow me to practice with my model 69 2 3/4.

    The gun I'm most underwhelmed with is the model 65. The fixed sights are very difficult to pick up.

    I'm waiting for my 686-4 to get back from the performance center. I'm hoping that it instills some more faith in the non MIM parts and square butt revolvers of old.

    Out of the two optics I find myself enjoying the Vortex more than my Burris. Optics are very difficult to get use to but last week single handed I put together a group that really wowed me. 6 shots in one ragged hole from 12 yards. (see attached).

    I'm very Glad I had an older friend teach me about reloading and about how fun revolvers can be.

    From shooting semi autos and USPSA to learning the patience and art that shooting a revolver takes has got me wanting to shoot more and practice more and that's what this sport and this hobby is all about.

    Have a great night.

    Very nice collection. Mine started out with a scandium framed revolver, then SS which was followed by the blued.

    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    How do you like full under lug vs tapered?

    I have a thing for stainless too. Would love to add a high polish 4" Python to the mix, but not enough to pay the asking price on them.

    My stainless accumulation.

    Since this photo was taken, I have put on s/r conversion stocks and an adapter.

    For me, that depends on the purpose for having it. Just for range time, the lugged barrel. To tame recoil, the lugged barrel. On my hip, all day, every day, tapered wins every time.

    As a RO, I could carry whatever I wanted. We issued M19s and M15s. I usually carried a 15. I used a 4”, 686 in competition and decided I needed to carry it so bought myself a belt, holster, etc. About a week later was back with the K frame.
