    Manurhin MR73 for me. Oh, and a nice Freedom Arms .454.

    One that I may never justify spending the money on, but might happen is a Korth, and the ones that will happen but might take a while is a new Python and a BFR 5” 44 mag.

    I have nice paintings for decoration but my guns serve one purpose, to be shot by me and I have expectations about accuracy, not looks.

    Shooting them with dirty reloads is fun!

    This is my favorite revolver, it is a .22 l.r. Korth 24series made in 1969. I bought it about a dozen years ago used and have had it going to the range with me almost every week since then. Ratzeburg Korths are so well made and finished, that they do not show use, only abuse.

    Glad to see a bunch of the QUEENS out of the safe and strutting their stuff.
    I hope many more come out of the safes. They were made for enjoyment.

    One gun I forgot in my list.
    A Smith & Wesson model 25 in .45 Colt.
    I am going today to hopefully buy a new one...if the store still has it...I hope, I hope, I hope. :D

    Got it! S&W 25-5 “Classic”. Now I have to wait 10 days to pick it up. They only had one. This one has obviously been handled. There is a small scratch on the barrel. Their other stores in San Diego and Ontario had one each but I am not driving 100+ miles in the hopes the ones at the other stores may be perfect. I am very happy with my acquisition. I paid $100 less than MSRP, so no gouging. I cannot wait to pick it up.

    It appears to have Altamont Roper grips.

    Saweeet. I passed up a nickel plated 25-? In 45 Colt not too long ago. Long story but should have grabbed it on the spot cause it went from 650ish to 1350ish over night. Literally.
    Happens every time I want to sleep on a purchase decision.:fire:

    I know how you feel. I missed out on a model 27 because I waited a day. I missed out on a 686 because I hesitated. I saw this one on this guns and ammo franchise store website I have never shopped at and called them to see if they would hold it for me. They said that they could not. I was sure I was going to show up and those words I have heard so many times before “Sorry, but we sold it earlier.”
    I am very happy I was able to get this one. Very happy. :cool:

    Todd, Grab-a-Gun has the TRR8 in stock now. I got an email a little while ago. They want full MSRP of $1360.00 for it.
    I posted this in the “.357 Double Action” thread a few minutes ago as well.

    Thanks for that for sure, but, after reading a couple of hands-on reviews, I'd like to be able to inspect one prior to popping for it.

    Seems even though - *ironically* - they are supposed to be Performance Center guns, some shoddy inspection/assembly has occurred on them and I don't care to cope with returns if I can help it.

    I sure do appreciate the head-up though.:thumbup:

    Todd.

    I saw a .22 a few years ago on gunbroker marked US POSTAL SERVICE. it went $sky-high$. It was pristine.

    I own my Holy Grail revolver; my S&W m66 3 inch, made in 1985 for Ashland
    Shooter Supply. Only 4195 were made. My other Holy Grail would be a S&W m696
    3" .44 Special. My m66 below:

    For me it would also be the Smith & Wesson Model 29 yeah I know it's not really "the most powerful handgun in the world" but powerful enough to start my love of revolvers

    Ruger Bisley Turnbull, but they generally sell now for more money than makes sense to me so I'll never scratch that itch.

    Yes, but you can mate a DS 2" barrel onto a Police Positive (.38 S&W not special)and voila you have a square butt BS

    A pair of HS Crusaders w/ matching s/n. Would not shoot them.

    A Dan Wesson .357 Max. Would shoot.
    A 25 or 625 in .45 Colt. Would shoot.

    While I am no longer looking as my Rossie 720 in .44 Special serves to anchor my night stand, and my Total Titanium Taurus in .32 H&R Mag serves as my carry, I have owned a number of S&W's , but the M66 with RB and 3" barrel I would like to have. My remaining brother has one and I think I will let him keep it. We both are to close to no longer having a need or want.
