    Guns I like

    Since this is my own small corner of this site (or the Internet in general), I thought I would post here, pictures of guns I like. Usually, and given the Greek laws, those are not pictures of guns I've seen in reality, but pictures from the Internetor printed publications. A short description of each gun will be included.

    And to start, here is my ideal revolver.



    (initially there was another revolver posted here, that's why the rest of the thread may not look very coherent).

    I've owned only one revolver during my life, a 4" barreled S&W Model 66. I've tried others as well, like Colt Pythons etc, but all revolvers tend to point high for me. This, together with the Greek laws which allow us only 2 centerfire pistols, made me to avoid buying a revolver again. This one though, has what I like. A 3" barrel with shroud, chambered for a respectable cartridge (although I do not like the recoil of the .357 Magnum). Perfect wheelgun for carrying. The only thing I would change, is to install a longer (lengt-wise) front sight, I think this looks our of proportions, with the rest of the gun.

    It was found at the SixgunJournal.net.

    Glad you liked it, John. I had a lot of fun working that article up.

    I keep hoping Ruger will offer the GP in 10mm/.40 with moon clips. There are a couple of custom smiths doing that conversion, and the gun is certainly beefy enough to handle it.

    John, does this mean you can have two 1911's and one 1911 frame with a .22 adapter slide installed?

    John is that the Ruger SP 101? I have one with the 2 1/4" barrel and it is a fine wheelgun. You are right about the recoil in the small wheelgun with .357 mag is a bit much but not too bad. .38 Specials on the other hand are a dream to shoot

    I'm not much of a weel-gun person either but if I did get one this would be it. Thought that you might like it.

    No, it is not an SP101, it is a GP100.

    We can own two centerfire firearms (revolvers of 6"+ barrels, pistols of 4"+ barrels, rifles (not semi-automatics)) and I think up to six rimfire firearms. So, I guess, yes, I can have two 1911s in .45 ACP and 9mm (that's what I have) and one 1911 in 22LR.

    John I could not get the picture down small enough to fit the forum rules. If it is OK with you I will post them again but I do not know how to get the picture smaller. I see now it is a GP 100 (not that I doubted you) but I went back and took a closer look and compared my SP 101 to the screen.
