I like your style.

Rossi .357Mags; 20" Carbine and 24" Rifle with Marbles Tang (before I put the Lyman Globe front sight on) and a Cattleman Cavalry model also in .357Mag.

Well, 357 Trapper and .45 until I can get a picture of a Ruger .357.

It's always been my intention to have a pic of my Henry Big Boy .357, and the Ruger 50th Anniversary Blackhawk. ( My 19-4 shoots more better, but since you're talking SA... )

Thanks Gentlemen... In fact, my son suggested earlier today that since I'll be home tomorrow, and there's a shoot at my CAS club on Sunday, I should go. After seeing this topic, I think I'll use her guns in her memory... Maybe they'll bring the luck she always did! 8) 8) :D

Great idea! I just learned a while back that one of my late wife's guns is coming back to me. It will be used.

Here's my favorite pair, well right now. 73 SRC from 1895 and Colt SAA from 1900, both in 44-40.

My .357 pair have been with me for decades and are a bit different, a 6 inch Model 19 and a Model 1892 action (made around 1907) with 20 inch Douglas barrel and Bishop stocks:

Since I see Smith's.........
While I posted the pic of my Rossi with my Colt, the truth is, I carry one of these with it most of the time.

I'm a firm believer in that receiver sight for the Rossi from Stevezgunz.
M.M., looks a nice warm sock ...

While a pair is nice, 2 pair is even better.

Both my 45 Colt Ubertis on top and my .357mag Rossi/Uberti on the bottom. (I'd added the Lyman front sight and a coat of WATCO Danish walnut stain to the stock of my Rossi rifle before I took this pic.)
