I live in Ohio but I am willing to do an FFL.
I am also open to other model and maker suggestions.
These will each serve a different purpose and I haven't decided exactly what yet on most of them.

I plan to eventually have everyone of these on the list in my collection no matter how long it takes.

What you don't think I will get them all? I am pretty determined to get them all before the government shuts down gun sales all together. I still haven't picked any Rifles yet, I did however pick up a nice NIB Mathews compound bow that came with all the extras yesterday at a swap meet... Its about 100lbs of draw tho I am gonna have to get back into shape lol...

I live in Fremont, I am in between Toledo and Sandusky I am not against FTF transactions or having a fellow forum member come visit to show me their hardware and visit a range to fire off some hot lead at some targets.

But there's no revolvers!!! :)
I haven't found a revolver I like yet, none of them really appeal to me, I guess I am bias towards semi autos...

There are 2 revolvers i like personally. I believe it's a S&W 525, 6 rounds of .45 ACP, and the Taurus 608 with 8 rounds of .357 Mag. If i had money when i saw it, i could have bought that Smith, but since someone snagged it before me i went with my RIA 1911.

No revolvers? Check this set-up. If this doesn't get your heart palpitating, just go ahead stick with the "bottom feeders". Dan Wesson 15-2 Rev Pack 357 Mag Like New Look!! : Revolvers at GunBroker.com
Alright, you got me there, being able to change the barrels length makes it very appealing, but the thing is when the bidding is done I won't be able to afford it...

I gotta say Dan Wesson is a genius.. That would make an awesome piece in my collection if I ever find another one like it... When I actually have money....

I gotta say though The Taurus PT945 Stainless got my heart pumping just as much and it was $425.
So did the almost brand spankin' new Ruger P89 I saw yesterday on sale for $385.

This one did get my heart rate up really good I think I turned a shade of red when my blood pressure rose.
I also don't consider any Semi-Auto aficionado to be a "bottom feeder"...
However you do make a valid point that there are revolvers out there that any man with any testosterone would like...

My thinking is I love any shiny boolit that goes BANG! and I would rather have 15 bangs for my buck, then 6 bangs any day... although as Harry says if you need more than 1-5 shots to hit a target, you better have on good running shoes...(I think he said more then 7 shots but I figure we're talking about a revolver so you get "My", "His" point)

What happened to the Ruger you put money down on? I figured since you got a loan, you'd have it by now!

Well Lake, The guy at the LGS is a complete MORON.... He sold the gun I put the money down on (The SS P95DC), plus the other blued one he had in the case... So I am having to wait on the re-ordered one to come in... Oh and now he's taken to trying his best to avoid me too..

He did say in our last heated conversation that if the price jumped after the "sale" ended, if the gun was late getting here, that he would refund my money. Now that doesn't make me feel better or put the gun in my hands any faster.. But from now on I will definitely watch who I do business with in this town...

Now I know I should have went some where else with my money to begin with, but "Gallery of Guns" had such a cheap price on it.. I should have stayed on his A$$ about it...

I also feel bad because MisterNoisy coughed up a lot to help me get my gun.

I mean when I first met this guy he seemed like he knew what he was doing and seemed pretty knowledgeable, but over the course of this month long terrible experience I realized that the town I live in is a Haven for sales MORONS....

I am currently looking for a more "Gun Friendly" town to move to preferably some place warmer with people that aren't retarded or addicted to crack...

What a crock, my gun store I go to if I see something I really want and don't have money I can ask him to put it back for me no money down and he will until I get money to get it. Case in point a G17 gen 4 with nightsites he got, NIB for 450 bucks... I jumped on it but I was flat broke =P he held it for me for a month or two until my tax check came in and he could of sold that gun 10 times over, had a guy in there begging to buy it off him but he wouldn't do it, but I also do alot of business there to. Shops name is Richmart in Ft. Loramie Ohio if you ever get down this way. Keep us updated man, this sure has been an ordeal for you.

Well I guess this being my first real gun purchase, and the fact that he probably zeroed in on me being a "Newbie" is why he's giving me such a hard time... But he sure made a mistake, I won't be buying from him again...
