Man, can you imagine getting that box in the mail? I'd be happy dancing all about the place.

They look great and by seem to shoot very well, I hope I can get one here, soon.

The one drawback to them is that S&W engineers have put an audio chip, of the sort that comes in some greeting cards, in the gun to tell you if it is locked or not. They used a nice female voice for it but it is very annoying. Every five minutes or so: "The lock is disengaged. The lock is disengaged."















































j/k :evil: :neener: That's for you lock haters. :D

I have gotten to see most all of the new NG series at the gun shop by this point. I thought they were neat in the catalog, but actually putting my hands on them...

I hate to admit this, but I may have to get one of those 386NG's. It would make a seriously sweet Detroit reload to my 586L-Comp!

:eek::what:

Why not? It's only an extra pound and a half.

Is there a difference between a Detroit reload and a New York Reload?

The Detroit reload is like the New York reload, but your visor is worn both upside down and backwards while doing it.

I love the looks of them, but where's the logic in Tritium front sights and regular back ones?

And what's a Detroid reload? Or New York?

A New York Reload is where you grab a new, fully loaded, gun instead of reloading the one that you just emptied.

The concept is that in a close up gun fight as longas you can see the big honking front sight you will hit your target, especially if firing with both eyes open. Max range forthe this technique is about 7 yards but thats all it needs to be. I have a 386 and like it alot.

These guns are not cheap, but man do I want the 396NG, in my favorite revolver cartridge, .44 Special.

They used a nice female voice for it but it is very annoying. Every five minutes or so: "The lock is disengaged. The lock is disengaged."
That's funny right there. I can just about imagine it.
