    What Is Wrong With Me?????

    I ordered a 6" stainless Model 66 which is arriving Tuesday. The purpose of this firearm was to use as a knock around truck gun. I'm not a gun snob, but being an inexpensive gun ($390 from Bud's) I thought this would be the perfect corrosion resistant, under-the-seat snake killer that I wouldn't mind getting scratched up. All of my other handguns are more expensive than the M66, including my other Taurus and they are all pampered and overprotected.

    Then I go online to look at holsters, and to make a long story short, I came across Patriot Gun Polishing Service. The mirror polish he puts on these guns is simply beautiful. I don't see how I can't have that matte finish polished off and shined up to the beautiful mirror finish. Then, of course I can't toss it under the seat when I go for a ride. I'll have to be careful not to scratch it. Some custom wood grips would go great with that bright shine, too. Can't mess those up. A DeSantis holster will be the perfect compliment to the high-shine beauty...Ain't throwing that under the seat.

    This happens every time I try to buy an inexpensive knock-around anything. I can't help but to try to turn it into more than it is, then I can't use it for its intended purpose. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

    I personally wouldn’t have it polished for a truck gun. The job would cost almost as much as the gun, and you won’t get it back.

    Made for the very serious business of self-preservation - the 605 is built to the Taurus Zero Tolerance standard - in design, fabrication, fit and performance.

    No problem, get it all polished up. Then go buy a 65 and pretend it is just too inexpensive of a revolver to doll up.

    I've done a bit of metal polishing over the years. High polish SS, truck gun and no scratches isn't going to work! Do what Silverstring says!

    Welcome from Northern Illinois...we love all guns here.
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself.

    I'd say you're normal.

    If you want a cheap gun to throw in the truck and not worry about scratches, watch GunBroker for a few weeks. Something's bound to catch your fancy that is well warn, cheap, and would fit just fine under the seat.
