do you even shoot them?
All the time. This is typical range day in the backyard with wife and boys. Its typical to run through 700-1500rds depending on what we are shooting. Obviously, the semi-autos go through ammo faster. I bring out a table of whatever I want to shoot and any requests from who's going out. Lay them out on the table and you just walk by and pickup what you feel like shooting like a buffet, load it up and go. I have 5 lanes on my range.

Very nice. I love to see wheel gun collections. Great pastime that gets overlooked too often. I had a Black Cherry Wrangler but it got sold. Also had a 4" 500 mag I sold and upgraded to the 8-3/8". I figure you're going to shoot the worlds most powerful handgun, do it from a long barrel, haha.

wheel guns have really started to grow on me ... they make me slow down and just enjoy the shooting ...

Brass doesn’t seem to fly as far from wheel guns either :) View attachment 163443 View attachment 163444
Nice. I really love the grip on a S&W 686. I don't know what it is but it just feels like it belongs in my hand. I hesitated when I saw a 6" 686 at a local shop. Was like $800. I think I picked up a 1911 thinking I come back the next time and get it. Haven't seen one since. That was 2 years ago. Now they are $900-$1000 online if you can find one.

I ended up buying the 357 Tracker and the model 44 while I wait for the price to drop on the 686 and 629
