    Very cool gun. J frame with adjustable sights is a sweet setup.

    Just picked this up today. Not my usual style, as it is not blued, stainless, or nickel...but it is a cool little snub. Perfect lightweight pocket carry for hot weather.

    The Model 28 Highway Patrolman is my favorite .357 revolver of all time. My Uncle Guru, as I called him, was a pistol competition champion many times over in the 70's. I asked him once if he could pick just one handgun, which would it be. His choice was the Model 28. He had a really nice one and we shot it a bit in the backyard.

    Sadly, Uncle Guru passed away. He was my shooting mentor and teacher. For some reason I haven't gotten around to getting myself a 28. But someday I will.

    Picked up something new today...my first .44 Magnum. This is a Smith & Wesson 629 Classic with a 5" barrel. It's a little too big for pocket carry ( ;)) but will do well on my hip while hiking in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge.

    I usually prefer blued steel. This is more of a tool. That said, the fit and finish is very good. S&W even softened up the end of the cylinder for easier reholstering. I might do surgery to remove the lock tonight.

    [EDIT - The revolver underwent lock removal surgery without complication this afternoon. It will spend this evening recovering and tomorrow off to the range.]

    Nice gun.
    Hard to beat a 5" for all around use.

    Oh. I forgot that they have to ship it to a NC FFL for you. That's a valid excuse. You forgot to mention that it is a 2.5" barrel. That makes it a stupid good deal.

    Blued revolvers look best with a little honest wear. That gun is in very good condition. Thanks for buying it so that I didn't have to. :)

    Well, my wheel gun collection has changed a bit, added some, and traded/sold a few. The only issue I'm having is figuring out the best way to take a picture where the light is decent!! I hate hauling them all outside, but maybe that is what I'm going to have to do!!!!
    Or maybe, take a picture of only one or two at a time. Might be something to consider! Well, anyway, here is my latest pic of most of my revolvers!!
    On the left: top Ruger Redhawk 7.5"bbl 44mag, Ruger GP100 6"bbl 357Mag, Ruger Alaskan 2.5"bbl 44 Mag
    On the Right: top S&W Stealth Hunter in Stainless 7.5"bbl 44Mag, S&W 329PD 4"bbl 44 Mag, S&W Pre Mod 10 M&P(circa 1946-47) 2" 38SPL, S&W 629PC 2"bbl 44Mag
    Center bottom: Dan Wesson Mod 744 4" bbl(5" with comped shroud) 44mag

    The newest addition and one of my favorites....

    The Ruger Redhawk in 45ACP/45 Colt. By far the softest shooting 45 wheelgun I've ever shot. And, yes those are aluminum cases in the moon clips:) I fired @140 rounds at it, some who can count higher than me tell me how many misses I had....

    This came home with me today. I could use a little help researching it. It is a Smith & Wesson Model 65-5 with an apparently factory spurless hammer, DAO internals (not just a bob job). BNCXXXX serial number suggests that it shipped in 1993. No box or papers. It is in EXCELLENT condition. If somebody told me that it had never been fired or carried since leaving the factory, I would believe it without hesitation. My guess it that it was part of a contract run for some sort of law enforcement agency; however, I see nothing just like it in the "Book." Thoughts?

    Well, if it is unfired it won't stay that way long. A gun like this must be carried. Might swap out the grips.

    3” DAO SB WG, Chrome Trigger, Bobbed Hammer; 10 Manufactured 1998.

    ?

    Need to call S&W and see if they can pull the product code for it. Damn that's pretty!

    I saw that in the book as well… However, I believe that it says the 10 manufactured in 1998 are square butt. This definitely has a round butt. The serial number is in line with 1993. Might request a factory letter.

    Look how easy it is to distract you guys from a relatively rare 3" revolver.

    Very nice...the "rare" part would have been the factory bob and DAO...but none are too common. Great little collection to have there.
