    I honestly can't answer that.......I was undecided what to name my guns and I decided to see what spanish words their was to represent my first 2 guns......and liked what i saw, so I decided to keep with the trend.......so no special reasoning of going for Spanish names

    Can't fault ya for that.

    Well it looks like you're trying to build up your collection (as am I), so that's cool.

    Just remember, sometimes its worth holding out a little while longer and saving up to spend a little bit more money to get the gun that's justright .

    Nice collection! I noticed a lack of revolvers though. A good J-frame or K-frame Smith would round out your collection nicely! How do you like that little Taurus .25? My LGS has 2 for sale and I've contemplated getting one for those days that I don't carry IWB. Being in the South, there's a lot of t-shirt and shorts days.

    Yup, + about a billion on the wheel gun suggestion.

    Take the plunge, the waters fine.

    As far as how I like the Taurus, I can't really answer that as I just picked it up less then 24 hours ago and haven't had it to a range yet. I have looked at revolvers but never found one I like in my price range. I wasn't even looking for a gun when I bought the Taurus, I just happened to find it when picking up a gun for my Uncle, and fell in love with it. There's a couple guns I'd like to add to my collection but will have to wait til I can afford them. I probably won't be buying no more guns for a while, unless something comes out of the blue unexpectedly. I do plan to have me an AR-15 or similar rifle as well as a Revolver, I'm thinking .357 magnum or .44 magnum

    Absolutely gorgeous!! Does it get any better than a Smith? Looks like you could drive nails with her! My dream revolver is a blued Model 19 with the wood grips. I don't know why, but those Model 19s just get me in a soft spot.

    I can relate! If I was wealthy, I'd buy every firearm I could get my grubby hands on! When you get your Taurus up and popping give us an update how she runs! You can't go wrong with .357 or .44. I'm partial to the .357 though. Just a personal thing. The first revolver I ever shot was my uncle's .357 when I was about 9. Been in love ever since!

    Thanks man. She's definitely my favorite shooter. She's a 66-2. The 66 is the stainless version of the 19. I love the 19 too. When I bought this one, there was a 19 right next to it in the case for about $50 cheaper. I thought about it a day too long. I went in in the afternoon the next business day after I saw it to buy it, and some former cop had bought it that morning. I missed out. That's ok though, because I snagged this one instead and am more than pleased. I love it. I've got the original grips too.

    Oh yes! Those 66s are breath-taking! Gotta love the stainless steel and wood all mingled together in a beautiful package. I'm partial to the shorter barrels as well. Absolutely beautiful.

    They sure are. I'll be getting more Smith wheel guns before I'm done (and by "done" I mean dead). The 19 I saw was also a 2.5" bbl. It didn't have the original grips but those are easy enough to find. It was a beaut.

    Oh good Lord!! You're making me envious! When I can save enough money to get a 19, it's going to be on! I want one of the 2.5" bbl and a 4" bbl. I love the square butt of the longer barrels. It sucks being a starving college student. When you get the 19, let us know how she runs. I'll live vicariously through you until I can get mine!

    Some nice firearms, I have names for mine I talk to them as well, as long as they don't start talking back and I keep taking the tablets I should be OK. ;)

    Did the college kid thing. Wasn't too fun. I don't envy you.

    I'll pick one up if I find it again and have the funds, and of course I'll definitely keep everyone here posted. :)

    I named my carry pistols. I don't won't my kids to ask me in public where my gun is. My Kahr CW-9 is named "Carrie". My LCP is "Little Rue". My Ruger P85 is "Rue". Where is Carrie? raises fewer eyebrows than "Dad, are you wearing your gun?"

    Found a nice older model Smith & Wesson model 30 .32 long 6 shot in blued for $375.......I plan on going tomorrow to see if I can work a deal on it and put it on lay-a-way. It isn't perfect condition but i'd rate it 90%.

    Nice. Not a bad find. But I thought you weren't going to buy any more guns for a while? :p

    I wasn't looking for another gun, I was actually at the pawn shop pawing a spare laptop I had as my parents need the money, and my dad seen the gun and pointed it out to me and wanted me look at it, and when I did instantly liked it and after thinking about it and seeing how much they're going for online, I want it. If it wasn't for my dad seeing it and wanting me to take a look at it, I doubt I would have paid much attention to it.

    Well I went by the pawn shop yesterday (Wednesday) and darn my luck they are closed on Wednesdays. I did go by today though, and they still had it and yes they done exactly what I wanted of them, which was $60 down instead of the 20% they usually want, and 120 day lay a way instead of 90 days. So I bit the bullet and put it on lay a way. After tax the gun was exactly $400 and a few cents, so I only owe $340 and a few, cents. Check out my next post on here and I'll have pictures of it posted.
