Here's my Smith's:
Model K-22 Outdoorsman
(K-22 1st Model)
Gun is all original, 75 years old and still a tack driving plinker!
Here are my three favorites....
Andy Cannon Custom Model 19 Snubby....shoots as good as it looks!
Next...Smith & Wesson Model 242 Ti titanium L Frame .38 Special...could be the best thing since sliced bread in a wheelgun format.
My old stand-by...the nickel Model 19, pinned & recessed...sorry...only have a pic of this honey in the holster (I made the holster).
My knock around all purpose loaner wheelgun....Smith Model 10, 3" .38 Spl. Not bad for $125.00!
My well worn and always reliable SW5906 9mm Parabellum. This is my workhorse and has not let me down yet. Just bought it a sibling in the form of a SA XD40 4" Bi-tone Service.

I haven't been on the forum for a while and a few Smith & Wessons have followed me home in the interim.
Model 19-4 4" Barrel
Model 19-5 with Sambar Stags and a Tyler T-Grip
Model 19-4 with Mother of Pearl Grips
These are a couple of my Smiths. The first one is my M-65 which started out as a square butt with a 4" barrel. I had the barrel shortened to 3", a new front sight installed and the grip converted to a round butt:
This one is my 340PD that is my "Always with me" gun:
Nice pair! I'm about to buy my first and have narrowed it down to these two pistols. With my small hands they both feel good, but I've only been able to fire the XD ( and I LIKE IT! ). The price on the M&P is very tempting; how would you compare the two? Thanks for anything you can tell me!
I guess I should post mine here as well, Photobucket needs a workout. Here's my S&W Model 29-6:
The previous owner did mess with it a little. The grip is designed for older square butt frames, mines a round butt and should have the Hogue rubber Mono-Grip. Also, I'm not sure, but I think the trigger was modified as well, it's got a real light single-action pull, almost like a competition gun, my previous Model 581-2 didn't have a pull as light as this one.
Lots of nice S&W's here and excellent photography too!
During the 1950s and 1960s Bullseye Shooting was big. S&W came out with the Model 25 1955 .45 ACP revolvers to give a well designed revolver to compete with the 1911a1 Auto loader.
The model 622 pistol gave a really nice plinking .22 LR pistol.
S&W Rolling Thunder 1911
Pearl Grips With Texas Star
