An age thing?

I think a lot of it is due to age and the memories from our youth. I always wanted a revolver that looked like the capbuster I had as a kid that looked like the revolvers I saw in the movies. I also wanted a rifle that looked like the BB gun I had that looked like the rifles I saw in the movies. Since I wanted both, I used the money that a Single Six would have cost and bought both a Heritage Rough Rider and a Henry lever rifle (both in 22lr). The Rough Rider is accurate, reliable and looks like a Single Six. The Henry is the most accurate and balanced rifle I have ever had.

There is just something about shooting a SA "cowboy" revolver and a lever action rifle that makes some of us old codgers feel young again.

+100. And I am not quite to half a century yet! I got the o' Henry about a year (or two?) ago now.... Wish I had one as a kid.... along with the Single Six.... but I got 'em now!

the few semi auto's I have RARELY leave the safe. Every trip to the range has a double or single action revolver with me. My ccw is almost always a six shot revolver

I was in High School when my 1968 3 screw was made, but I'm lucky that I did find a single six with very few mile's on her.
