I'm with you I have handled one and loved it. I would get it in 38, 357 as thats what I have. They say they sell a lot of them at Academy but I just can't get my mind sold on what I would do with it that I can't do with my hand guns. It's one of those things I get a headache from just wanting to think about it. I hope I never walk in with enough money but I do have other guns that I have higher on the need list then one of those. Like a full size lever action, I don't have one and would love to own one in even 30.30. I grew up hunting with one and love the way they feel. They are one of the most natural pointing guns I have ever shot. Open sights all the way it just hits what I'm aiming at.
