Found several old threads from searching, but nothing dedicated to simply pictures of nice DA revolvers.

I'm a huge fan. Picking up brass is so much easier for us crippled old guys.

I'll start with a few of my favorites:

I had a mint Trooper III that I regret selling the most. It had the slightly rounded butt on it, so 80’s? I picked up cheap and was sold with some others. I’ll have to go find pics of them.

Yes, around 1980 or so up until 1983. I don't have my book on hand to reference, but I think it happened around the time of the introduction of the .22 mag version.

I'm not sure most people even remember PPC. That was some fun. So were Bowling Pin shoots. I've a full rib long slide 1911 just for pins somewhere in the back of the safe.

Not mine... Just spotted on the turnbullrestoration website:

Those were going for $995 on Gunbroker a while back. I really think they would have sold better with a pair of $200 grips added to them with corresponding price increase.

There are still quite a few Turnbull Super Blackhawks for sale I see...

I don't know what a dippi is, but it is a plain jane kangaroo rat. I'm in east central colorado near Deer Trail....
It’s a short nickname for the scientific name.
Wikipedia
Scientific name: Dipodomys

We called ‘em dippi’s or kangaroos out in Nevada. Fun to watch and as kids we kept them as pets.
