What revolver do you covet from another member? The easy answer would be anything that ColtPythonElite, or SaxonPig own. :evil:

Craig has a lot of top shelf single actions that I find appealing. Too many to single any one out though, as they are obviously all nice. He also gets em tuned up and puts more in options into his sixguns than most people have in their entire collection. And he lives somewhere nearby... Talking about coveting your neighbors possessions..

Thanks! :)

I covet StrawHat's 1860 Richards Type I cartridge conversion. Driftwood Johnson's old S&W's, duelist's collection of Open Tops and cartridge conversions, mm6mm6's engraved guns and a whole bunch of others I'm forgetting. Lots of folks with good stuff.

I really don't covet anyone elses stuff. BTW I have a junky old thing just like craigc above, except mine still wears it's original stocks. My other 44 specials are mostly Single Action Armys.

I am pretty happy with my own guns and am not envious or covet other peoples material things. I could have one beater gun and be happy!! I enjoy the hunt more than the kill.

There's a poster on here who has an entire ruger -vault- with all sorts of goodies in it. I wouldn't mind walking around in there... the pictures alone were amazing. Wish I could find the thread.

I don't covet anyone's revolvers per se but I sure do like looking at those of CraigC (and his fantastic leather work), SaxonPig, and DriftwoodJohnson.

I like S&W i-frames and someone came up with this. A 32 S&W Long 3.25" barreled 1903 with target sights and grip. I freely admit to coveting it. I will not take the 10 step cure!

There are many posters here that have guns worthy of being envied. The ones that get me most are the classics like Craig's N frame and old Colts. I also dream of custom work I'd like to have one done by each and every big name revolver smith. I'll prolly just settle for sending my Lipsey Ruger 44 special to turnbull.

Many of the firearms shown on this site are like elephants i.e. I like looking at them but I don't want to own one. The same goes for all of those fancy leather holsters, color case hardening, blueing and so on. I appreciate fine materials and craftsmanship but I've always cared more about function than art. Even the "pictures" hanging on the wall in my house are maps. If I want to see art I'll go to a museum.

Just my opinion so don't get all bent out of shape if you own a bunch of art!!

NO ONE'S! I already own the finest handgun in the world, 6" Colt Python!
What is really strange is there 7 pages of colt pythons for sale on gunbroker whereas there is half a page for S&W 25-2 and only a single listing (1) for a S&W 4 inch 25-5. Of course there isn't a listing for a S&W 16-4 which is my ultimate grail gun but them colt pythons are everywhere. Anyway my Colt Lawman has as good a trigger as any python and my Colt New Service in 44-40 which is nearing its 100th birthday can still shoot silver dollar groups.

Now to "covet" is bad as such actions can lead one to evil acts.

I forgot to add. Covet and droolng over a gun are not the same. Drooling is an advanced hyper active state of admiration.

I don't covet it, but I sure do like it a lot. CraigC has a white handled .44 Magnum that just makes me smile every time I see it.
Do me a favor, Craig, and post that beauty up one more time.

None of 'em. Hell, I had a Colt 6" SS King Cobra, Smith & Wesson 3" 547 9mm revolver, Bulgarian AK's with milled receivers, & a mint condition Russian SKS. Sold 'em all in the divorce. If I wanted one of 'em back or something else, I'd save my pennies or sell some toys for it. Covet/Envy is freakin' stupid. Maybe that's why I think folks who go gaga over celebrities are idiots.

Yea, cuz. That's the one. Model 24 Smiths make me all happy-like.

Don't know if I covet it or not.
Damn sure would like to have one like it.
It's one purty, junky ole thing.
In fact, since it's a "junky ole thang" I'll do you a favor. I'll take it off your hands. You wouldn't want that one to sully your collection. I'll love it, warts and all.:)

I'd also like to have any nice Python, Trooper, 3 5 7, or just about any pre-Mark 3 Colt DA revolver.
There's also a laundry list of pre-MIM/IL Smiths I'd like to have.
I'm not prejudiced. I like 'em all. Except for Glocks.

I really like the way CraigC scratched up one of his Open Tops. Not the revolver so much as the scratches he has on it. I would like to put something similar on this.

I personally wouldn't take the "covet" reference too seriously.

The same goes for all of those fancy leather holsters, color case hardening, blueing and so on.
Who says a functional firearm or holster has to be plain or ugly? You 'can' have your cake and eat it too. I certainly use all my guns.


I'll take it off your hands.
I'll get right on that! :neener:

^ craig, that is one of the finest looking sixguns i've seen. it was the inspiration for me getting my 3.75" .44. a re-barrel was always planned, but the 3.75 shoots so well for as is.

Ummmm.... I'm trying to think. Is it Confederate that has the all the stainless Ruger Six series, including the Security Six with the grip reprofiled to round grip configuration?

I love those.

That 581 is absolutely sublime, probably the most gorgeous example of a S&W revolver you'll ever see. On a side note, where's DHart been the past few months? His photos are superb (as is his taste in revolvers).

I won't mention the name of the forum member,,,
But I once posted that my Holy Grail gun was a S&W Model 45 revolver.

This thrice-cursed, low-life, egg-sucking, son-of-a-Hi-Point,,,
Sent me a picture of his gun w/box that looked like it just came off the factory line.

I did offer to trade a 1978 Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster for it,,,
He was considering it until I disclosed that my musician brother would come with it.

So yes,,,
I covet mightily. :evil:

My one consolation is that he promised,,,
If he ever decides to part with it,,,
He would give me first bid.

Aarond

P.S. Many moons ago when I was ignorant about guns,,,
A buddy of mine needed cash and offered to sell me an old fixed sight S&W .22 revolver,,,
I was also a poor but honest working slob and just didn't have the $100.00 he was asking for it so I passed it up.
