    If you need a speed loader for this, you are in trouble.

    Looks like a great revolver.
    Before 1997 I used to have two Dan Wesson's - a .357Maximum & .445 Supermag....nice guns with stacks of power & great for long range revolver shooting. Friends enjoyed .454 Cassul and centre Contenders...those days are gone due to the law change in 1997 & our pistols & revolvers were handed in.
    Banning our handguns following media and public outcry after two big shooting incidents in the UK didn't stop this kind of thing happening. It's happened since with clowns using rifles and other weapons.
    Nuts really, but that's our politicians and media for you. If one owns firearms here...we're on the 'dark' side!

    I did find it mildly ironic that, whilst working in an off licence as a student in 2001 (post handgun ban), the robbers who held the store up on Sunday night while I was working alone had a handgun.

    Clearly the ban worked a treat!

    i was more mundane than you lot with a glock 17 and a smith 686! Was damn good fun though, never did shoot the 50 DE but dabbled a bit with the 44 version. 18 years on and the ban still makes no sense!

    Sadly the only handgun I got to own was a Gat gun. Very versatile though. It would fire pellets, those darts with flights on the back and corks. It was unerring in it's accuracy. Without fail, every single time, it would be guaranteed to never hit the same place twice however close you were to it.

    I, like many others I suspect still have my Gat. Take it out in the garden occasionally and shoot at things. Like Pedro said it never hits anything you aim at but it does take you back.

    I also many years ago had a Colt 45 automatic I've no idea what model and a Star 22 pistol, I seem to remember that was a nice little auto.
