Got my first gun in 1963 when I was 10 years old. A Ruger Single Six .22, and I still have it.

I've since added a Single Six Convertible and a Blackhawk .357, both 3 screws. And a Blackhawk in .41 Mag.

have been a member of fast draw. I don't feel naked w/ a single action. I feel strong. Once you are used to it, it is second nature in your hands,

1. Single Action revolver grips are often designed to roll in the hand, significantly reducing recoil pain. The same .357 magnum rounds that are painful to shoot in my S&W revolver feel very soft in a Ruger single action of similar weight.

2. They don't make a double action revolver as small as the NAA mini-revolver.

3. In some states a reproduction "antique" firearm is exempt from a lot of firearms laws. In my opinion the Remington 1858 is the finest of the bunch. The Adams double action revolver could be good but I never tried it and they are not cheap.

Because I couldn't find a DA revolver in .30 Carbine... :)
Nor do they make a double action in .30-30 Winchester!
