Revolver guidance
 
I have no wheel guns. I know I know!!!! I'm not sure what to get. It won't be a carry piece, more or less a plinker. Don't want a 22 ! Would love a 500 but really would just end up being a safe queen. Thinking 357, or possibly a 44. But what manufacturer ?? The rhinos are cool looking, but is it a fad??

I was just looking at the rhino yesterday. Cool looks but really uncomfortable grip. I'm thinking a .22 WMR as my next wheel gun. Currently carry a s&w 637 and love it.

I'm thinking I want something in the 6" area?? A 629 maybe?? So confused !!

357 is definitely the route you should go. Smith or Ruger. Flip a coin is you are not sure.

Because after you buy a GP 100, you can spend your evenings going "DANG! Why did I not get a S&W Combat Magnum?"

Sa/da. Because I have a GP 100 and I love that revolver.

But.........C3 has a point. While I love my GP 100, The S&W's are 'finer' revolvers. Quit dissing my GP 100!
