    And the Lord said it shall be blue. It shall be steel. It shall be large, but not obese. It shall be the most beautiful bestest revolver ever made by humans except for a renegade clan in Wyoming. (The Lord got a lil long winded there)

    Wanna borrow mine?

    Want me to run one of yours over to Hamilton? He's on my way to the 7-11.

    I like mine from that clan in Wyoming (Freedom Arms). They're really a nice handgun.

    I've got a 4" 629 no dash, pinned and recessed, and a newer 6" 629.

    A nice N frame .44 mag is about close as perfect as a revolver can be, IMHO.

    Shooting an N frame .44 mag never fails to satisfy.

    I had a Model 24 .44 Special with 3" barrel (Lew Horton Special) ... Wish I still had it. :cry
    Too many Model 29 .44 Magnums to remember. Oh, and a Model 57 .41 Magnum with 8 3/8" barrel. That damn thing should have had wheels on it. :bmwrider
    Edit: Almost forgot I had a Model 27 .357, tapered and pinned barrel too ... Sweet shooter.
    Jeebus, I've had a lot of guns. :huh

    I'm presently waiting on Mr. Roy Jinks at S&W to send me a letter on a low # Pre-Model 27 .357 I've got. It appears to be a factory custom of some sorts (well... at least I'm hoing it is:D )

    You see them around, but they are kind of pricey as I believe the run was 5,000. I bought mine from a dealer who had it on consignment for a guy who fired it a few times and decided the blast and recoil were a bit much. So it was essentially new. Lucky find at a good price.

    It seems no different than any other M29, quite comfortable and very accurate. Really fun to shoot, especially at night. :lol3

    While it is still a big revolver, the 3" barrel and Ahrends grips make it a great little camping gun when I am deep in bear country.

    I was just talking to S/W on the phone, as I did not know what the gun in my pic was, it is a .38 Military & Police special 1905 model, made in 1907, so it just turned 100.
    I asked if it was collectable, he said we made 6.5 million of them:lol3 so I guess not. It is now called the model 10.

    Hey, just because it isn't scarce as hen's teeth doesn't make it undesirable. It is a fine revolver, and I think it belongs in a collection as the widely issued and used gun that it was. More police probably carried that until relatively recent times than anything else. They even make the M10 today, although it has lost the M&P name. At some point, when I can find a nice one, I will add it to my collection.
