Frist, an apology for joining the forum earlier this week and NOT making my first post here.  I jumped right into the Revolver board to ask a couple of questions about the 44 revolver I was buying.

The above 44 is my first Dan Wesson firearm.  I have wanted one for a while, but never actually jumped on one.  I was at one point a "S&W Collector", but do not really actively pursue them any more.  I'd say I'm more of an "accumulator" than a collector as I have no focus.  I just buy what I find interesting.  I have revolvers from S&W, Colt, Ruger and Italian single actions (and Taurus, if I must fully confess).  Have had a C&R collector's FFL for more than 20 years as I love old guns and surplus. 

I started shooting .22 when I was about 10 or 11, but really started getting into guns full bore around 15 or 16.  Bought my first real handgun by "dad proxy" at 16--a Taurus PT-92F.  It is still my bedside gun. Since then my "accumulation" has grown to include a little bit of everything short of full auto (not legal in Washington, or I would probably do that too).

Thanks for ignoring my "slip" by posting first in the Revolver board and welcoming me there!

I kinda like 1911s, but sadly I have never shot a DW 1911.

Welcome, from North Central Florida. Lots of accumulators/collectors here. My mother was an accumulator. Her house was torn down when we got her out of it. Firearms accumulators can pay off the mortgage with their pile of stuff.
