A good revolver shooter is seriously fun to watch.

Ed McGivern tried to use 1911's for his exhibition shooting but they could not cycle fast enough, so he went back to his S&W revolvers.

And Jerry Miculek blows me away with his reload speed.

Lots of practice....

I'm a young guy, but I like all guns, new or old... my favorite pistol (1911) is an old-er design..

I love a good working auto. My 1911 rocks. But I have a 6 inch 586 and a 4 inch 629 that I will never part with. There is just something about a S&W Revolver. If I shoot single action even my 1911 can't group like my 586.

One of the guys who works the counter at the local public indoor range has a name for those guys. He calls them MONEY, I had to ask why. He said it's simple they rent what ever pistol I offer up, buy all there ammo and targets here and rent ears and eyes. I said I shoot here often and with out a pause he said yea but you bring all your own gear and spend $12 for a lane. He makes commision off sales and rentals so those boys are money to him. So now when I see a group of xbox gangsters at the range giving an odd look at my wheel guns I smile and say how's it going Money!

Yeah I've gone through this with a couple guys at work. They don't understand the concept, until you give them a demonstration of the effectiveness of revolvers. I've also been questioned by folks my own age as to "what are those things", when regarding speed loaders. Have those kids take their Glock out to 25 yards and see what it prints. What also helps its letting them feel the power of a good .357 or .44 mag load. I sold one guy on a Super Redhawk like that.

I think today might be "snubbie" day.

These kids are not STUPID.

They simply lack EXPERIENCE.

On the upside they represent the next generation of pro gun voters.
I for one love to encounted these guys at the range. The difference between my shot groups and theres ALWAYS results in questions getting asked, experience getting shared, and knowledge getting transfered.

Like or not we all enjoy a "perishible" sport. We must take the time to ensure these younger shooters pick up on the values, respect, and quiet confidence inherent within OUR gun culture.

TACK

NGIB, I know how you feel and I'm 28. I get all kinds of looks when I break out my model 19(S&W not glock), the old guys smile and the youngs ones look twice. There is something about a guy who looks 19(I would get carded for cigarette if I just shaved) methodically shooting a 6" revolver in single action. I haven't taken my 8 3/8" 44 to a public range yet....maybe my next trip. Hang in there, old man.

Damn spittin' we come from the same age group, but I'm so glad I never encounter any other shooters at the range. I shoot best by myself and second best with close friends only.

Some folks will never understand what it feels like to shoot and enjoy a real piece of American history, the revolver. Not to mention it's supreme functionality.
