    How Y'all Dune?

    New poster from Missouri, central US of A, third stone from the sun.

    Long-time gun guy, who likes the look and feel of this forum. Somewhat opinionated, literate, gabby, a bit stentorian at times.........and did I mention opinionated? Been a reloader for 30 years or so, and love the handguns I've managed to accumulate. I'm a bit of a dinosaur........I like revolvers, and don't own any Combat Tupperware. I'm a big S&W revolver fan, but own a few others......Rossi and Ruger. Autopistols run the gamut from 1911's to Bersas and EAA Witnesses. I work armed (Corporate Security) and carry a 38 that I adore, it's not what I'd choose but it works well enough, and I've been shooting S&W K-frames for 35 years, so it feels natural. Hope to get to know y'all well enough to want to buy you a cold beverage someday.

    Welcome to the forum, from another K-frame revolver fan. At the range, those K-Smiths always make me look good...

    my only k frame is a a CHP model 68-2.... S&W mated a 6 inch model 66 with a .38 special cylinder. they were issued with pachmayr grips. the letters CHP are stamped on the frame under the cylinder.

    CHP and LAPD both ussed these guns, less than 5000 were made and when the CHP went to autos they let the officers buy their guns.... if they didnt buy them they were overstamped OHB and sold.

    i got mine from the officer that was originally issued it. he bought it when it was retired and i bought it from him.... it was used in 3 shooting and the final tally was 3 bad guys down, no LEO hurt. thought the gun had good Karma,

    and it shoots very very nice!
