OK guys, it's SHOWTIME!

Show us your Dan Wesson revolvers, I know they are out there.

BTW, I have a DW Small Frame item that I will send out to whoever posts picture # ???

The actual # is a deeply held secret, known only to me and Jim Beam, it might be #1, maybe #18, or possibly #51, Jim will let me know when the time is right.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Shotgunboss, all Dans are worthy. Sometimes a Dan with character makes a nice pic.

Ante up.  Not certain I like my special effects but I really like the new DWA front sight color!

AGS in 445 Supermag- the only Norwich plant gun in the collection.  Propping it up is an Applegate-Fairbairn fighting knife.

A pair of Dan Wesson Action Cups.

In the foreground is a Monson Manufactured version.  This one will only chamber .38 Special and is double action only as well.  The gun was very well used before I came into possession of it.  It has a very smooth trigger pull, suggesting that it had received trigger work in the past or these guns get better with copious use.  This AC was missing it's original Tasco ProPoint red dot scope.  The one pictured was purchased via ebay and was new in the box.

In the background is a Palmer manufactured version.  This one will chamber .357 Magnum and can be shot double action or single action.  I came into possession of this gun via a trade and I believe the previous owner was the first person to shoot it.  It remains in like new condition and includes it's original box, paperwork and other related items.
