    In New Jersey it is a pain in the you know what to purchase a handgun. Each handgun requires its own permit to purchase, with annoying paperwork.

    So about a year ago it was off to the Local Police Station to start the paperwork on two purchase permits.

    The two guns purchased:

    Smith & Wesson 27-2 from about 1977

    Smith & Wesson .44 Special from 1916

    These look like my last firearm purchases for a good while

    Pretty good choices, and fun revolvers to shoot. That nickel 27 is pretty (and useful), and the .44 should be a hoot at the range ...

    So you bought those guns a year ago and just got them? And that 27 is amazing

    I'm pretty sure you've posted that Triple Lock before.

    It is stunning.

    Nice ones, That's why I am so glad I live in the free state of Idaho where the 2nd is king.

    I got them delivered to the local FFL and picked them up between December and February about a year ago.

    Just recently realized that with these two in the stable there are no revolvers left for me to realistically think about getting.

    Two good choices but as nice as they are they wouldn’t be my last.

    I really like S&W revolvers.

    The .44 looks like a Triple Lock. That should be pretty valuable.

    Awesome Smith and Wessons! Congrats.

    Ed: "You know, that Model 27 and .44 Hand Ejector are stunning...so stunning, in fact, that you'll never...I mean NEVER...have to buy another revolver! There's no point in buying another gun of ANY type after acquiring those two guns! "

    Not cheap, but about 1/3 the cost of a Registered Magnum in the same condition.
    Registered Magnums are priced high enough that I've never considered getting one.

    Those two revolvers are absolutely stunning, especially the nickel plated Model 27! Sorry to hear about your governmental obstacles to getting them but they're both well worth the wait!

    The nickel 27-2 is especially nice given that American Manufacturing in the late 1970's was in a bit of a rut quality-wise
