Americans and new gun designs

It's true.

Think about it.  150 years ago how many people in this country owned a single action Colt style revolver and/or some variety of lever gun.  Those designs practically ARE America.  Not just Cowboy movies, but actual people.  

French people didn't own that many of those two type.  Not even close.  Now Swedes nor Prussians nor Egyptians.

"Well T-Bolt, they didn't have a vast Western frontier full of wilderness."

Fine.  South Africans and Rhodesians weren't chocablock with lever guns and revolvers.  Nor Australia.

Both designs were pretty fancy shmancy for the times, too.  'What do you need to shoot 5 rounds at one time for?  Going on a murder spree?'  Yeah, heard that strawman before.

I want a lever gun. .357 or .44 mag. Maybe one of each.

get the .44 and get a supressor. Buy .44 Special for that part.
