    Smile S&W Definative Pictures

    S&W Speak.
    Those of us that have spent a lot of time around S&W revolvers sometimes use use strange terms like HBH which stands for Hump Back Hammer. but what the heck is that?
    In the days of long ago target shooters stood on their hind legs and shot with ONE hand at targets 25 and 50 yards away. slow fire 1 minute per shot, timed fire 5 shots in 20 seconds and rapid fire 5shots in 10 seconds.In those days target shooters always cocked the hammers on their revolvers even though they were double action. This hammer cocking took time and disturber the aim especially in rapid fire where you only had 10 secons to cock and fire 5 times. Just prior to WW2 S&W came up with the hump back hammer. (1937) It looked strange but target shooters found that it allowed them to cock their revolvers faster and with less disturbance to their stance and hand hold. Others said they were ugly, funny looking, etc. WW2 came along and after the war S&W shortened the travel and widened the lowered hammer spur. Auto loaders also took their place on the line allowing the shooters to not even think about cocking the hammer. Thus the HBH is a little known varaition. It looks like this.

    I really like all the guns U have. Also, the local store has that S&W 357 w/ the "8 times" written across the side - that is a sweet gun. It's over $800, though

    Smile Added another one.

    I just got this one last week and I think she is going to be a shooter. I ran over 200 rounds through her and I had only one stove pipe. That could have been my fault. Up to 30' the gun is dead on the money, it shoots better than I can.

    S&W 1911/.45 Commander SC-PD.

    My toy and tool...

    My new toy, and my first handgun.

    A two month old Model 642 Airweight .38 purchased two days ago. I like it so far. Definatly had to get used to a 2" barrel rather then the 5" S&W .357 I grew up firing. But a 5" isnt that easy to carry in a in-waist holster...

    Planning to get a new grip but there isnt much else out there for these new J-Frames...

    Anyways here the pics...

    My first and only Smith in 30 years, but this one will never leave my ownership. It is a K frame, 3", 65-5. I added a great looking set of grips to dress it up for a night on the town.

    Three of my Smiths - a new 686-6P, a 586 no-dash, middle and a 586-1 bottom. All three are great shooters.

    Another of my Smiths - this one's got to be the most fun I've had shooting in quite a while. Added an inexpensive red dot and made it even more fun.
