OldManMontgomery, I couldn't agree more with that statement!
I've said it before and here again, "There's just something about a vintage Smith wheel gun in the N or K frame models. Like a vintage M1911A1, the history seems to morph from the ageless stocks into the shooter's hand and provides us with a glimpse of brilliance from the giants who's shoulders we walk on. (Elmer Keith, Jack Weaver, Col. Charles "Boots" Askins, Thell Reed, Jerry Miculek to name a few.)"
I have two.
^ Smith & Wesson model 19-3, P&R. Manufactured in 1970, this gun is older than many members here.
^ Smith & Wesson model 29-2, P&R. Manufactured in 1980. "...you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

And there are two answers to your question: Why revolvers?
