My friend came into the range Saturday morning, and, after speaking, asked if I had anything new. From his grin, I knew this was his way of saying "I've got a new gun."
Now to Jim a new gun is one he bought used, and in pristine condition. And so it was, a Smith & Wesson Model 15 Combat Masterpiece, with 2" barrel. It looked unfired, but had the Smith Target stocks on it, which sort of detracts from its otherwise dimunitive size. He told me he traded for it last week. When I asked what he traded for it, he said "I honestly don't remember."
(If it were unfired, it's not now.)

Jim has this thing for the snub nosed guns, so I'm sure he wouldn't go out of his way to find a 5" model.
I talked to my gunsmith, Jim's son-in-law, later after posting this. He told me he thought Jim had become a professional gun trader since his retirement.
Nothing wrong with that Bob. Wish I could but I just don't have the money. All I do anymore is buy, shoot, and enjoy my guns. I have let to many jewels go over the years.
