Bigghoss, I was thinking the same thing, but found out that the price may not have risen on revolvers, but availability has been affected. The other shops I visited that day had very few wheel guns, one having only used antiques, and high end S&W revolvers. The first place I went to had several Charter Arms guns before Christmas. Including the Bulldog I was wanting. Saturday they had no Taurus, or Charter revolvers, and only 2 Ruger LCR 22 rimfire, and a couple single actions. They were the shop that had numerious high end Smiths though.
