I've never owned one. :thinkin:

I guess they don't ejaculate brass all the way to the next county - that'd be nice!!

Kind of a PITA to reload though, aren't they??

It's handy to just shove a mag in there and go...

They make speed loaders for them that make reloading pretty quick
I think this one was moon clips

Wait until you touch off a .44 mag - .454 Casull, or .500 S&W -- you'll be hooked on recoil forever after.

I use speed strips, not as fast as a speed loader but fit in the pocket better.

Can't beat a revolver. I had the .41 mag Ruger and the highway patrolman out yesterday. 100 rounds of .357 and 50 of .41, all full magnum loads.

God bless America and the Magnum.

I got interested in wheel guns late in life, but now I really like them. Got rid of my 357 mag wheel gun when I got my 357 desert eagle.... starting missing the wheel gun so I bought two more of them in 357 LOL

Wheel guns are great for reloaders.

You dump the empties out right into your hand and sometimes shoot all day and never lose a case or crawl around looking for one.

Never worry about the power level cycling your action either!

I even bought a shoulder holster just so I could CCW my single action .44magnum. You really don't need a large capacity magazine when you can shoot through one bad guy and get the two standing behind him.

Yeah, not having to bend over for brass is a kindness to my back.

I hope they line up in single-file for you! :roflol:

I've seen that guy on TV - That's just not normal!!
He made some kinda 600+ yard shot with a 9mm revolver on "Impossible Shots" ( or whatever it's called) too!!

I've shot a couple wheel guns - a LONG time ago though...

I had an old 73 Chevy pick-up back then and my friend owned a Model 29 S&W 44 mag with an 8' barrel. The Dirty Harry Gun, I think?
Just for the hell of it - I had him jump in the back of my pick-up and shoot a hole through my already bent tail-gate in the upper corner.
That big bullet hole sure got a lot of comments!! :whistle:

Maybe that's what started the "fake bullet hole" sticker craze...

You should slide across the border one of these weekends and shoot some of my wheelies :mrgreen:
The price of the free shoot includes, food and drink, poor conversation and bad music

I have two of these for my GP-100s. Great devices and the "turn knob" is MUCH more reliable than the "push knobs" I've seen or tried.
