    Having a few chats with fellow THR'ers..

    I seemed to have my interests move from:

    Semi-auto pistols --> Revolvers --> Rifles

    So tell me what direction your gun interests are progressing?

    (I wait in anticipation for Tamara's diagram..):evil:

    Idling :-(

    Haven't purchased a gun in almost a year.

    Haven't purchased ammo in a few months.

    Haven't shot a gun in a month.

    Haven't dry fired in weeks.

    Same way my interest has been growing for the past nearly 20 years... revolvers.

    Yeah, I have other guns. I've bought other guns. But I'm still a revolver guy at heart.

    1911 style, and old smith wheels always have and has never changed.

    Shotguns and rifles only change is the ga/cal for the job. Their Platforms same way.

    Competed for awhile. Although have always CCW, and cogiznant of security and safety, more attention to these.

    Revolvers when I was young. Then it was rifles (HK-91) in college. Pistols in the '80s. Full Autos from mid-80s to early '90s. Around '94 first got drawn to flintlocks. Now it's older guns and sharpshooting. Must be age.

    Did I read that wrong? angel.gif

    Recently my interests have been along the lines of cheap C&R weapons, those that I can buy in sets of three (three kids who will get the contents of the various safes one of these days....) .

    Other than that, most anything that goes bang at a reasonable cost:bang for $ spent ratio.

    Autoloader->Rifle->Autoloader->Rifle->Revolver->Autoloader->Autoloader->Autoloader->Autoloader->Revolver->AR-15->Autoloader->Etc...->CCW->Lever Action->Reloading->Autoloader...

    I prefer autoloaders, don't mind a revolver every now and again. I like rifles, but handguns are so much more convenient to take to the range.

    Haven't sent in for my C&R yet... this interest line would be skewed in a few directions then...

    I'll agree with mike on this, I buy/own fancy autoloaders, but those revolvers just have a hold on me, I'm almost always carrying a revolver.

    In addition lately I seem to be getting interested in old military weapons.......tom

    Twoblink said,

    Nope...this is what happens when you take on new hobbies (girlfriend, motorcycle).

    I may go to a gunshow this weekend, though.

    Of late, my facination with revolvers is on the wane.

    Am becoming more interested in Single Shot Rifles and small rifle calibers.

    my first love is revolvers & shotguns. I had a brief affair with semi auto pistols but I think that's over. As a matter of fact just yesterday I think I decided to sell or trade off some of them to get into C.A.S.

    Military style 'assault rifles' (pre-'89) > hi-cap 'wonder-nine' semi auto pistols > milsurp rifles > surplus semi-auto & 1911-style pistols > revolvers (currently).

    Smith N frames, especially those in .41 Magnum.

    Highly accurate .22 rifles with high powered scopes for an e-mail .22 benchrest match I participate in.

    Right now my deer rifles are eclipsing both since the rifle deer season starts on Saturday here.
