Re: They are overpriced bad.

I got one in the early 90's and then added a few more in 6" (one in nickel in the wood case) in the mid-90's. I just love how the 6" handles and shoots. Now I wish I had picked up some 4". I'm NOT even going to look on GunBroker ... I don't want to know. I love my Diamondbacks.
