    I'll be the first to admit that it's a guilty pleasure. As mentioned before, trigger pull is horrible, there's nowhere near enough barrel
    for the rifling to stablize the projectile, sights are about on par
    with a low-end J-frame.....

    I just had to have it. I guess that's where I am in my collection, I
    have the meat and potatos, now I'm adding the gravy.

    I understand! We have more guns that we can ever shoot, but we are
    always still looking at new stuff... Wife's father passed away, and
    mother wanted to keep a pistol and a shotgun and wanted my wife to
    have the rest of it, so earlier today I shot a Beretta 92FS and CZ75
    for the first time. :-)

    Wife is in the
    same place. She's got a couple of Henry tributes she'd like to grab,
    but today she picked up some limited edition North American Arms mini-revolvers that she really liked. Again, not a "shooter's gun" but
    a couple of nice conversation starters....

    I saw an add for an NAA last year. Never owned one and didn't have a
    desire for one, but I LOVED the way this one looked. What did she
    get?

    She got a 1860 Sheriff .22 WMR. Hexagon barrel is engraved Independence Day 2022 and the grip has a US flag motif as well as the cylinder being blue with 50 white stars on it. Serial number begins with 1776. It's a bit larger than most NAA revolvers with a "typical" SAA shaped grip - although it IS smaller than on normal gun.

    She also picked up a winter edition revolver. Pretty much the standard NAA style revolver, but cerakoted a light blue color with a mountain engraved on one side, snow flakes on the other and white pearlite grips. Came with a cross-draw holster as well.

    She's not much of a shooter any more, although she does enjoy putting a few rounds through her Woodsman every now and again. Me... I've been having some shoulder issues so I can't shoot for very long or things start to get real achey... Still, I DO have some new acquisitions that are just begging to be shot.... my AR-12 being one of them....

    Ah! Very cool! Sounds like a GREAT piece!

    That's the one I'm sure I saw that made me go, "yeah, I'd like to have one of those..." but never bought it...

    My wife hasn't been shooting much either, lately, but it's HER idea next
    week while on Fall Break to go to Natchez Trace State Park for a few days
    and stay in a cabin to 'get away.' They have a shooting range and she's excited to take 'some of daddy's guns' up there to shoot...

    Ouch - yeah, I get that for sure... :(
