I've got a lot of wheelguns, but my favorite is probably a Smith & Wesson Model 1955 Target, chambered in .45 ACP.

My best ever was a nickel S&W Model 57 with 4" barrel. It pointed for me like an extension of my arm and had the best trigger pulls I've ever felt on a double-action. They measured 2.5 pounds single action and 8 pounds double action. I bought the gun used, and always wondered who did the trigger job. It was burglarized from my house 20+ years ago. Bummer!

Hands down, my 25-2. It was unfired when I picked it up a few years ago. It isn't anymore. Perfect weight, trigger, balance, accuracy. The best target revolver ever made. Not too hard to look at, either.

My S&W 629-4 .44 Magnum.. Its super accurate even when I may not be shooting my best... this is my most recent grouping. 12 Shots, 15 Meters Distance, 10 Bullseyes and two pulled 1.5" left of center... Now thats my idea of "Gun Control"!!!!!

I absolutely agree. Mine isn't quite as pretty as yours, but it will still put 10 shots in one no-so-ragged hole at 25 yds. if I do my part (which is getting increasingly more difficult with older eyes).

I have many that impress me, but my favorite has to be the "Python" that my wife bought me 45 years ago.

That would be my 4" 357 mag. Colt Python (E Series) the action was super. I shot my best 6 shot group that was 3/4 " Shot during Nite Fire Qualification, at 15 yards standing.

It is hard to pick just one. For me, it would be a tossup between:

Have not shot a whole bunch of revolvers but I would say my S&W model 18 is the one I enjoy the most. A friends Ruger security six with a very smooth trigger job would be a close second.

My model 15-4 is the most accurate gun I own.

Colt Officer's Model Match .22. I foolishly traded it away around 1960. Next best is my S&W M67 fron 1980 something. Still have that one. It will be in my estate.

Either my Ruger 6-1/2" single-six, my S&W 8-3/8" 686-3 or my S&W 5" 629 classic. It depends on which one I'm shooting at the time.

Probably my SW Model 66. I got it as a rookie cop, it was the Cadillac of police revolvers in the early '80s. It stood by me through thick and thin, won a few competitions when the good guns were off doing something else, and convinced more than a few goblins to pay attention and mind their manners.

Did I mention that it could shoot? Oh, my, that revolver was wonderful. One day after a qualification, a bunch of us were playing around at the 25 yard line and I started putting bullets on a target. Four cylinders later, I had this target.



Oh, before I leave, I had to comment on this earlier posting.

Go make up with your Dad. Really. It's important. Maybe more important than you'll ever know.
