    S&w 12

    I'd have to go with my S&W model 12...especially if it was a round butt. Even if a square butt the S&W would be my choice.

    I'd much rather retire with steel and aluminum that with steel and (ugh) plastic. :barf:

    I think you made the right choice.

    A Glock 30SFs isn't hard to come by. A Smith & Wesson Model 12 on the other hand...
    Buy the S&W 12 for a $1 and you can always buy yourself a Glock 30SF later.

    I would pick the one that I had the most emotional attachment to. IMC the Model 12.

    Get the model 12 for a dollar. I buy it from you for two dollars and you double your money.

    Enjoy retirement and thanks for your service.

    Get them both if you can. If not get the snub.

    Plastic guns are not good guns to hand down to family members.

    That wheelgun was your first, and thus I feel your last (well not last last, but I'd keep it.)
