a S&W in .38 Smith and Wesson. Bought it for $15, well used. A coupon on a back page of Outdoor Life magazine. Shipped Railway Express. I rode my bike downtown to pick it up. No ID, no forms, and I was 15 years old.

Excellent! Have one in 6”. 100 percent brass retention for reloading….

The day I turned 21, I went down and bought a Ruger Old Model Blackhawk in .357.

I REALLY wish I still had it!

Ruger Redhawk .44 mag when I was 18. I funded it, but my mom had to sign the paperwork. I put the V notch rear sight on it with the gold bead front sight. A set of Pachmayr Gripper grips made it easier to control and hit targets at longer ranges. Loved that gun!

I'll be honest. I'm not big on wheel guns. For me, carrying & using a hand gun is all about "capacity." And semi-auto pistols are much better suited for that.

That said, I did inherit a SW Model 10 and a model 15 from my uncle before he died. I sold the 15 but I kept the model 10 and still have it today. I even have speed loaders for it (38 Spc). I only practice with it on the range. But I do not EDC it at all.

Used S&Ws and Ruger Security 6s while in the Army and an assortment of wheel guns working armed security in later years. Been building ARs & FALs and collecting different models of 1911s.

Never owned a wheel gun until a couple of years ago. Dad gave me his Rossi 851 in .38. Liked it so much I bought another one in stainless and a 971 in .357

Fun at the range, but I’ll stick with one of my 1911s for carry.

My very first handgun purchase back in 1995 was a 4" stainless Ruger GP100.
