I realize I am going to be an absolute kill-joy as I’ll take a revolver over a semi-auto any day of the week, but why do folks insist on taking pictures of LOADED revolvers with propping devices INSIDE the trigger guard?

All the best,
Steve

How do you know they are not dummy rounds, loaded to look like live ammo?

That and it would be pretty tough to have a ten or twelve pound full double action trigger pull with a flashlight prop rod

You are absolutely correct Sharps. If that is indeed the case that my sincerest apologies and I’ll take my lashes. However if it's not, then my original question stands.

All the best,
Steve

ssmith... the loadedness is their problem and live rounds always have more snap in a photo, the prop rods are just lame and dumber.

Not a classic but it works

My grandparents had 2 revolvers, little boy and big boy. I inherited "little boy" a few years back, a fine S&W model 15 Combat Masterpiece .38 Special 2". I'm not sure where "big boy" went or what it was except that it was a 357 mag.
The little pistol seems lonely without big boy around and because of sentimental value and the near 100% finish (I have the blue box too) I don't shoot it much so I needed to find a new "big boy". I had started looking for a new 357 when a new concept was introduced from Italy and when a 6" version was introduced I bought one.
Being a 357 and with a top rail, the Chiappa Rhino 60DS looked like it might serve as a deer hunter too. Here it is with a scope and range results.

You can find more details about the scope and mount at http://swfa.com/ContestEntries.aspx.
I hope to take it to the woods next fall to try it out.
