    A pair of six inch Model 28 Highway Patrol Smith's in .357 mag. My first one I bought myself at a gun show in Orlando going on twenty five years ago. The second came to me from my father who got it from his father. One of my daughters will have them from me one day.

    My 1955 4" Colt Cobra. It has original grips, BK grip adapter, and a finish worn from long years at my side, now mostly in a Simply Rugged holster made for my 3" Bulldog. Many thousands of rounds of my reloads, and still tight. That Bulldog would be in second place.

    Love my .44 Special Flattop Blackhawk and was also duly saddened to learn the Private Schultz was no longer making grips. The grips he made for me are also American Holly and fit my gun perfectly as well as being finished to perfection!

    For me it would be my 8 shot 627 snub.

    D2722B54-6675-49C2-98F8-90BBC418313E.jpeg It’s either the Bobbed 37 or the 442 with Boot Grips. I can’t decide.

    I've only had this 15-3 from 1970 for a couple years but currently it's definitely my favorite. Had trigger work and excellent front sight modification. If'n I'm shooting a revolver this one is it. Joe

    Tough question

    The one I use the most is my Ruger SP101. I sold my XDs awhile back to buy a Glock 43 for my EDC and instead bought something else and started carrying this again:)

    I have a bunch of revolvers and always intend to carry something else as a sidearm when hiking or hunting but always opt for this. It's light, handy, shoots well, and I just like it. It's not my fanciest or coolest, but it does everything and it's done a lot.

    I still need a G43, but I'm ok carrying this again for awhile.

    My current favorite is a Ruger LCR in .327 Federal Magnum (which I shoot with .32 H&R mag). I makes a very nice pocket-carry piece. Although I don’t carry it much, I also like my S&W 386 Night Guard, although it had to go back to S&W twice to get it right.

    This question gets harder to answer the more revolvers you own...

    I carried revolver #1, first gun I ever bought, for about 20 years as a primary carry. Never had a "situation". Bought revolver #2 (very similar) and it ended up being the gun I had on me the two times I had a "situation", within weeks of each other. (Pray to God and knock on wood those are my only 2 times)

    Both guns did their job as asked. Which is "better"?

    This doesn't even count other revolvers I own that may have sentimental value, or are for sheer recreation, or just sheer admiration, or are particularly handsome/accurate, or were a grail gun, or whatever else.



    That's why this question is virtually impossible to answer for me personally. All are okay by me, but none are really "I would keep this gun above and beyond any other that I own". And of course you're still adding to the stable all the while...

    I've been watching this thread for a while trying to figure out what to say and you nailed it for me. I can't decide, they're all special, each for a different reason, glad I don't have to decide, plenty of room in the safe for them all.

    First revolver I've owned in quite a while... I think it may turn out to be my all time favorite. Currently it is my only revolver.

    I have one, a 1917 Army Colt 45. And its civilian brother, a shooting master in 38-40. The 1917 has been to Colorado with me three times as a protection piece when camping in the mountains. I trust it that much, and it's as accurate as any pistol I own. I believe it's a 1919 mfg date. On the left side of the gun is a 9 digit number, scratched in crudely by hand. Not sure if it's a SSN or what. All I know is it handles any ammo I throw at it (no +p) and is a dream to shoot. 20180217_084649.jpg 20180217_084618.jpg
