    I just thought it wasn't fair that six guns didn't have their own picture category. Afterall, they are the most reliable of all pistols ever created.:icon_popcorn:Anyhow, I'll start things off with a pair of mine. My purdy lil' Cimarron and the Ruger SBH Hunter both chambered in 45LC. Of all the handgun calibers, the colt 45 is truly a pleasure to shoot. Hopefully my pics turn out ok, but lets see what ya'll got...:tongueout:

    lol

    Wheelguns are not pistols. A pistol is a handgun in which the chamber is integral with the barrel. ;)

    While I was having fun with the OP; there is always someone who will spend countless time trying to prove you wrong.

    The fact is, it is common useage in the gun world that a pistol and revolver are different.

    That someone found a definition that is not as specific; I don't really care.

    Who gives a shit. The meaning is implied.

    No more about semantics.

    I sure as hell know I'm not the only person in Texas with a six gun and a camera! C'mon y'all, lets see some photos. Oh and BTW TX inv., you should note the smiley+popcorn following that statement clearly implies that I wanted to open that can of worms and spark such important debates.
