    Finally picked IT up!

    I finally was able to pick up my recent purchase. It's a blackhawk in .357 w/ a 4 5/8 barrel. By the serial number, I figure it was shipped in 1981. It doesn't look nearly that old to me. Now I can't wait to get out and shoot it.

    looking good

    PanaDP: Sir; I looked at one similar yesterday @gun show. Not nearly as nice as your picture. Man thought $525.00 was a good price. I want one to keep some of the others company
    Do a range report with some pictures

    Jeff: Admittedly, I am a mac devotee. In reality, it was a nice flat surface that added some subtle fill. I refuse to post badly lit photos, even if they are quickies.

    Neophyte: $525 is a pretty mediocre price. This one walked home with me for more than a hundred dollars less than that, and that's in CA, where firearms seem a good bit more expensive than any other state I've looked in.

    As for the range report, that should come tomorrow. I bought some cheapo ammunition at the last gun show that came around so I'm going to take it and my 77/22 that I recently came back into possession of (it was at ym Dad's for ages) out for a spin. I got both cleaned up nice and shiny so it's time to go get them dirty again.










    ...and then clean them again.

    Bah! It's like a conspiracy. First I had to wait ten days to pick it up because I'm in California. Then I was working long hours so it took just under 2 weeks to even pick up my gun. Now I've been called for some work (I work freelance, so I take every bit I can get) so it'll be another couple days before I can test drive it.
