Did some wheeling and dealing at the local gun show Saturday and came home with this. Thought maybe there was someone here I haven't bored with the pictures. :D

Smith & Wesson Model 24-3, 44 Special, 4" barrel, box and papers.

I do love a good .44. Especially .44 Special.
That's a nice find. If you want, I can take it to the range and try it out for you.

Now THAT is showing off!

Ain't it the truth? Here I thought my Kings looked good, and RC comes along with aces. ;) Mighty fine RC. Mighty fine. :D

I took the -3 to the range yesterday and fired 100 rounds of reloads through. 200 grain RNFP lead bullets over Universay powder. Good shooter and a lot of fun. Good solid BOOM, and nice big hole in the target. The range was only seven yards (all the range has for handguns), so it wasn't long before I was just shooting through the hole in the center of the target.

I can see this on going to be on the "favorite" list. Oh wait...they all are.

CajunBass, that gun is the missing niche in my collection. Wanna sell it? I know the 24s got the rap for not being particularly accurate, but they are seriously cool guns in a fun caliber.

I'll play. :)

Model 28 from 1969. Made in America. Spent 40 years in South Africa. Now has a home in Australia. 11 pound double action, 3 pound 11 ounce single action. Crisp single action break makes it feel lighter. A couple of very minor nicks, slight cylinder drag line, and a touch of muzzle wear. Accurate too. I'm a happy man. :)

Well, I know this one's a Smith Jr. but she sure is purdy to me, a model 19-4. I'm keeping an eye on a nickel 19-4 to keep her company.

autos are great, but a great revolver does so much more, especially if you are a good shot.

Autos are for function. Revolvers are for awesome.

The whole 1950 Target gives me a headache. Pre 24, Pre 25 Pre 26... No wait... the pre 26 was .45ACP... but the M25... ARGH!:banghead:

Here you are with a 4" "Target.":banghead::banghead:

CB the stocks on that M24-3 are stunning. :drool:
