    I’ve owned two or three over the years. Always regret selling it after I do. I may have some full moon clips for one laying around somewhere

    Mine is a S&w 686. Same hole at 17 yards. It is a never sell, or never give to gov.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Good lord...what was done to that gun in a previous life that you felt it necessary to disassemble it that far? It's a Smith for god's sake. Unless it's been carried well lubed in a box of sand it's whole life leave well enough alone.
    I love my L frames (and K's and N's lol) but my Super Blackhawk is a keeper too. Even better when it has a top roll stamp that reads "Made in the 200th year of American Liberty". 240 grn 44 Mag go boom with authority!

    Sat in my safe for 4 years unfired...

    + my curiosity over never fully cleaning it when I first bought it
    + my ignorance of how complex of a machine it is.

    After this, I'm following TYM's cleaning advice.

    I had a Ruger Blackhawk Convertable in .45 ACP .45 Long Colt.

    It had headspace issues with my reloads, so I sold it.

    I really regret it.

    I LOVED the feel of that gun.

    I think a lot of shooters my age and younger really don't appreciate revolvers as much as they should.

    It seems as if modern semi-auto's are to pistols what AR-15's are to rifles.

    Traditional semi-auto's (Browning HP, 1911) are to pistols what traditional Milsurps are to rifles.

    I feel like revolvers with swing out cylinders are like bolt action target rifles.

    Revolvers with load gates are like bolt action hunting rifles.

    Wheel guns are real guns. I have Rhino that shoots just amazingly well and a 686 2.5 that’s great….but I have a Colt Cobra that is probably the most accurate snub I have ever shot. I had a couple Smith Mod 36’s that I had better luck hitting the target by throwing them down range fathers than pulling the trigger.
