I bought my uberti saa in august and since then I've sold my Beretta 92SB, and added a super blackhawk 44 mag. I enjoy shooting the revolvers so much more than when I had my 9mm. Feels more natural, and now I've been bitten by the big bore bug. I love the uberti in 357, just the right amount of recoil, and in 38spcl it feels like a 22. Shot the sbh today for the first time, first time shooting a 44 and was impressed by how tame it felt. Next on my list now is another saa clone in 45 Colt. I'm addicted now.

My friends think I am too young to have a thing for SA's, I'm 37 and really hope to pass my passion for classic firearms to my son. My dad's Winchester 94 will be coming home to me the day after Thanksgiving as well as his old, no name single shot 12 ga and my Great Grandfathers single shot 12ga. I have no idea what make they are, but they are treasures to me. Dad died back in '99 and my brother has had these since, he says he has no use for them and I am welcome to them. The one of dad's guns that he is keeping is his 30.06, which is set up for a lefty anyways.
I really like the looks of the Cimarron Plinkerton. But I am sucker for 22LR single actions. It sure would make a nice practice weapon. It's a nicer looking gun than my Heritage 9".

The Frontier models are pricey. For the same money you can get a Ruger or a Uberti cattleman.

Yea I paid a decent buck for the Frontier, but once I felt how smooth it was and how light the trigger is, I was hooked. In retrospect, I maybe should have bought another Ruger, but I dig the four clicks.

A little off topic maybe: I quit putting dowels or shotgun shells through the trigger guard to make photos. I bought a package of children's modelling clay at a toy counter. I make a short "pedestal" of clay and set the gun on it, balancing it on its cylinder, then tilt it to suit. The clay is not visible, or shouldn't be, in the photo, yet the gun is set apart from the background.
