As I said in my other thread I was considering buying myself my first handgun, I came out of the auction with a S&W 19 for $550! Got myself a box of 158 grain bullets and put a few through it tonight, shoots great and looks amazing. I plan on keeping this one forever :)

Oh, and here are some pics:

Very nice! You will enjoy that gun for the rest of your life, not only because it is a sweet shooting Smith & Wesson Model 19 Combat Magnum and can drive tacks all day long, but because it is also your first handgun.

My first handgun was a Model 19 with 4" barrel just like yours only mine is in blue, not nickel. Bought it in 1980 and it is still the gun I shoot the best, and I'll never be without it.

Got one in blue myself. Was part of my Dad's collection.

Once you see your first Colt Python you'll want to sell that Smith to me ;)

Congratulations!

Oh, very nice. A 4" Model 19 is at the top of my wish list. That gun looks to be in near mint condition.

Spent a few bucks on more ammo today and put it through it paces at 20 yards with some cheap 38s and more 357s. Wow, that was a lot of fun!

That's a beauty!!

My first pistol purchase (non black powder) when I turned 21 in 1977 was a nickle S&W 19. It was identical to this in every way. I still have it today. I still shoot it once per month. It still looks pretty good.
