Actually, what I found kind of funny is that one of the guns I was shooting was about as state of the art as you can get. It's a stainless 686+, 7 shot .357, 3 inch barrel, and adjustable night sights. I wouldn't trade it for 3 Glocks...

Dave, I've answered this question for you before.

We (old guys with "...the old fashioned guns") are not young enough to know everything.




Old Guy remedial gun lesson #1 (Get your gangsta on!):
All guns that are not autoloaders = old fashioned guns

All autoloaders = glocks

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Ok Dude, I wrote it down this time as my short-term memory isn't what it used to be...

If you really want to get your gangsta on then you have to hold the gun sideways when you shoot

To me, it sounds like you had a close encounter with Glock fanboys.
I'm a young guy, but I like all guns, new or old... my favorite pistol (1911) is an old-er design..

That's Old Guy remedial gun lesson #2; street cred.

I'm a big wheel gun fan.... Can't mess up a wheel gun especially a DA revolver. Pull the trigger till it goes bang, repeat

With age may not come a steady hand. But for sure a steady mind

If I came to the range and saw you shooting your revolver sideways, I might think you were the coolest guy in the world.

That would be old time gangsta. TIGHT!!

Old fashioned? Ouch. I guess black powder qualifies as Ancient?

My partner shoots matches every weekend. IPSC, IDPA and 3 Gun.

He decided to shoot his S&W M67 in an IDPA match last year. He was the only revolver shooter, and when he finished his first run, one of the RSO's asked him "what are those round things?".

The "round things" were his speed loaders.

My partner is 38; not exactly old fashioned.

Two of the guys that occasionally come to our pin shoots use S&W 625s in .45 ACP using moon clips. A couple of the younger shooters just stared in awe that a)revolvers shoot well and b)can be reloaded very quickly with practice. One of these guys beat me and came in 2nd at the last match...
