Mary Ann or Ginger?

Arguably two of the prettiest two guns ever made. The sexy, flashy, and Hollywood-chic Python (Ginger) or the simple, familiar and old sweetheart SAA (Mary Ann). Who do you like better?

And unless your name is Gilligan you can't say both.

I vote for Mary Ann (The SAA).

That's not fair:
1) Ginger, duh!
2) The SAA!

It took me a long time to come around to DA revolver styles, having grown up on autos. Even now, I have to find a good balance of width, length, and overall style in order to really like a good revolver.

With the old SAA's, they are damn near all beauties. Its a rare exception to find an ugly one! They just look so elegant and refined. I'll take an SAA anyday.

Well, under that line of thinking, I guess Gilligan would be a Taurus?

Proof that cheap labor doesn't always get the job done. *grin*

I always found the Mary Ann Types to be more of the wild side when you are shooting full loads on the indoor range. So I prefer SAA MaryAnn's when taking a wheely for a ride.

Well, I've always liked (still do) petite woman so I'm a Mary Ann fan. Now, in terms of the revolver, I choose Ginger!
