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.]
Hard to beat a 5" for all around use.
@Mike_D I am waiting for your post. Let's see it.
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.
You done good! It looks new.
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.
Picked up this mod30-1 today at a local pawn shop pristine condition, but no box, 400.00 since I am not the S&W aficionado some of you guys are did I do ok? If I spent to much,tell me, so I won't do it again.
1969 Smith and Wesson Model 10.

I think that you did okay It's a little blurry...but looks like it will shoot fine.
Thanks,i know what a smith guy you are,so now I feel better. Sorry about the quality of the pic best my phone will do,
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!!

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....
Here's another Ruger in 45 Colt...
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!
They look like fun. Who knew ?
I'll have to send my wife out to get a couple.
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.
My god man! Give that woman a cheeseburger. She looks starved half to death.
Look how easy it is to distract you guys from a relatively rare 3" revolver.
She'll pay for my revolvers with a stack of one dollar bills.
Like these ?
Very nice...the "rare" part would have been the factory bob and DAO...but none are too common. Great little collection to have there.
Well.. I'll dump...
Very nice! Local find or Gunbroker?

Local. I think you know...and how little I paid for it.
