I realize this is an Old Thread, I know, but I wanted to add something to the list.

Charles Daly 18.5" / 3" chamber. Good Home Defense shotgun. They're only a couple hundred dollars and they operate on the same platform as the Rem. 870. I have one leaning against my side of the bed 24/7 stuffed with five 2-3/4" 00 buck and a couple slugs. The only real difference between the CD & the 870 is the bolt carrier and the bolt are one piece. The receiver is aircraft aluminum, so it's not quite the quality of the 870, but it's also not in the same price range either, but it does demonstrate the same reliable feed and function that my 870's do. And it comes with the sling attachments.

While I keep saying I've enough guns (I know, you never have enough), I still want to add a couple of revolvers to my collection. Thinking a couple of .357 magnums, a Lady Smith for my Baby, and just because I've always wanted one, a .44 magnum.
One of these days

It's a long process... finding the good deals from the bad ones... But worth it.
While most of mine are semi-auto, I really like wheel guns! Have three only
but really like them. 2 are Ruger GP-100s. REALLY like those! :)

I'd like a Ruger GP-100, but for some reason, I've always wanted a Ruger SP-101
It's on my list :mrgreen:

There is actually quite a difference in the frame. Years ago (as I hear it), Bill Ruger knew that some folks would
be shooting a lot of .357 mag rounds and he decided that the 101 frame would eventually let go. Hence the GP100
series. Beefed up the frame and felt confident that there was a frame that could take a constant battering from full
boat .357s and hold up. 101 is a great gun, and one I'd like to add to the stable. Will last quite a while with .357s, but
not like the GPs.

The GP100 is on steroids then? I see. Still, my old Security Six recommended a small diet of .357. Normal usage would be the .38sp. Besides, even as a young guy IIRC it was more comfortable shooting the .38sp than .357.

I understand that the 101 is in the middle of the Security Six and the GP series as far as 'robustness'.

I wouldn't mind a Ruger but my Highway Patrolman will eat full house .357 Magnum loads all day and ask for more (I like shooting magnums).

I've got a Highway Patrolman too, and I agree, it'll take whatever I feed it.
I haven't shot it in a long time, when I feel like shooting 357, I grab my S&W 586
Not as stout as the 28-2 though

I'd like a 586 or 686 some day, or another 28-2. Something in 44 mag would be cool... Thus is a long list if I keep going.

I like my 586-1, it's a bit lighter than the 28-2, and a little shorter.
I'd like to have a 29, but they are a little out of reach right now
