I can't believe it....., I'm in my mid-40's, been a rifle/shotgun shooter and hunter all my life but never got into pistol shooting until recently. It started a couple months ago when I bought an older Single Six off a co-worker. Now I added a New Model .357 Blackhawk with the 4-5/8" barrel (bought it off the same guy as the SS). Man these revolvers are fun! My son and I are literally having a blast! All we've shot out of the .357 so far are .38 SPL......, next trip to the range, we're trying the .357 Mag rounds. I'm (we're) already trying to decide what revolver to look for next!
