Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Yes indeed they are.
As is the lady in the picture, six shooters are a thing of beauty. For a while back in the '80s I got heavily into semis. That wore off after a while and I gravitated back to single actions. May have to do with the nostalgia of growing up watching Westerns. The lovely missus and I have a ritual every Saturday at 3:00 PM where we drop what we're doing and sit down to watch her all time favorite show, Rawhide, and then two episodes of Wanted Dead or Alive on retro channel MeTV. Still great after all these years. And so is the missus.................
This is where you call a woman 'Handsome'.
