Yeah, I got a late start on revolvers too. I was raised a semi-auto guy (my dad had a 1911), and I always thought that revolvers looked like the "cowboys and Indians" cap guns I had grown up with.
Bought my first revolver at about age 25, and it was such a POS (Rossi) that it turned me off revolvers until I bought my first S&W (an old Model 66) in 2001...almost twenty years later.
Today I really like me some S&W revolvers. I've probably owned well over 20 since then, and although I keep it down to a few (buy one, sell one) I treasure the ones I own.
As I grow older, I realize that I don't need to own one of everything. Owning a few that I really like is okay.
