I guess I fit into the owned/still own category...
I had a stainless 357 revolver (mod 66?)with adjustable sights... it consistently hit to the left.. had to move the rear sight almost all the way over to adjust for it. Got to looking at it, and found that the barrel was not rotated quite to "top dead center".. the front sight was leaning slightly to the right. Not a huge deal, but a little irritating. The gun functioned fine.
I currently own a stainless 5 shot 38 snub, don't remember the model number, and it has been pretty much a flawless performer. I occasionally get a failure to fire when doing double action shooting, but since I've gone to Winchester primers from CCI, it hasn't happened.
I also own a Pro 24/7 in .45 ACP, and it has been a flawless performer as well.
I always felt that if I got to the point where I thought it was time to bury my firearms, it was actually time to pick them up..
