I kind of share the feeling that the first "every day" gun needs to be new. Even though I did a lot of research already and familiar with most popular revolvers out there knowing about them
and knowing them
is not the same thing...
Now that I said it, I am an inch away for getting a Nagant 1985
I know that goes against all the conclusions I stated above, but I don't really consider it a primary gun. It seems like more of a "fun gun", even though there is nothing funny about a good 7.62 bullet. But it's my heritage: my grandfather carried one during WWII.
