Post Those Revolvers!

I love my Ruger Old Army with a .45 Colt cylinder. I am definitely adding a Diamondback Sidekick for plinking, the swing-out cylinder-- and .22 mag included–makes it the Hi-Standard double nine I never had.


The Italian open tops are just fun to have and to hold. Not so much to clean…

Modern wheel guns are fun too…

What type of tools would they use for this type of engraving?
I cant draw a line not to mention 2 spiraling shapes or zig zag parallel lines.

That’s the truth! I have some gravers but never could get a decent line or curl. Google/ youtube it there are a lot of videos that make it look easy. Now days a decent laser and a rotary attachment will get you similar results, but under close examination not even close to hand work by a master. Kind of like the vinyl vs CD argument.
Here is one Michael Gouse Engraving did for Sixgunner

Elmer Keith’s original .44 Special #5 with
Bill Grover’s .44 Magnum Improved Number Five. This looks suspiciously like the #5 I attributed to Alan Harton in an above post. EDIT Photo in above post is Bill Grover, not Alan Harton. Mind is slipping…

A revolver with an identity crisis…

Can’t speak for the group, but again, I prefer “reprobate”. :grinning:

My lovely assistant @TexasEskimo will likely be more than happy to repost the definition for those in need (assuming he still has it handy). :laughing:

“Reprobate” is equally applicable. :grinning:

On the other hand, if you call @TexasEskimo as a character witness you are well and truly screwed.

I would call @TexasEskimo a character, but as a character witness, mmmm…depends on what he’s witnessed…credibility could be an issue… :thinking:

Not certain is this is a “and/or/both” definition…

Just what are you trying to say? Please elucidate for everyone’s benefit.

One of the first things I do in any litigation is investigating the online posts of the adversary and their witnesses. Even when clearly benign and intended as jest I usually can paint an unflattering picture. To be fair the same is true of my posts.

Regarding your value as a character witness I will leave that to the judgment of the forum jury.

Don’t get me wrong. I truly enjoy the irreverence of your posts. Please keep it up.

I think he’s basically saying you’re a reprobate as well… :grinning:

I don’t have any more revolver pictures, I only own the one currently. Sorry.
