    Yeah, I'm a Smith & Wesson revolver man. I sorta collect them.
    BTW: all my Smiths are blue steel and there ain't a lock in the bunch.

    Sure wish I could find one, just one .357 with a 4" barrel, blued and real wood grips, at a fair price. I might a well take the next shuddle out of here.

    My S&Ws

    I only have two of them,....and they are just alike except for the color. Got a 1 7/8" round butt M-36 blued and an identical M-60 in stainless. I have lots of military rifles and other stuff and just never felt the need for an S&W until I started carrying. I bought the M-36 first, and it was used but just like NIB. Absolutely perfect. The M-60 is obviously a police trade in, tight where it should be tight and works like a charm. I'm always on the look out for S&Ws now, but really don't have much interest in the 4 and 6 inch models. Anything three and under and especially with a heavy barrel "talks to me"

    Talking Luck I tell Ya. Just Luck...

    Lucked out and got me a S&W M19-4 at a show about two months ago. Put a new set of stocks on today. Yep went to the gun show yesterday. Old gril looks fairly good now. Wife bought me a S&W M21-4 about a month ago. So now I got two fantastic range guns.

    Boy Sig That's a beauty in anybodys book. I like the way you took the picture too. Dang nice set of stocks you got on her. They look like the new Hogues. I like them with the cap on the butt plate.

    You're right Baldy, they are brand new Hogue's. Between you and me, I did have a difficult time with the order. Took 11 weeks and several follow up phone calls. Custom out of stock grips state 6-8 weeks for delivery. After a nasty (cancel my order) email was sent to Hogue, I received a call that day. Amazingly, the rep had my new grips and shipped them to me. Hmmm, makes one wonder wouldn't you say? But, they are quality wood grips.

    Hogue's Look Good!!!

    I'm going to order new hogue grips for my 686 soon but was going to go with a lighter color, Tulipwood w/finger grooves, accent stripe, butt cap & checkering. Love my 686 and need to dress it up. Your darker grips look great though.
    I bought cutom Hogue (Kingswood, checkered) grips for my wifes PPK/S & had no problems getting them in a timely manor. Got them for her for a Christmas present. I was going to buy her a new pressure cooker but changed my mind and decided to get something a little more romantic.

    In fairness to Hogue, I wouldn't hesitate to order another set. The gentleman I spoke to was very apologetic for the phone customer service miscommunications and delay. He indicated some internal problems that he stated have been corrected; regarding one department knowing what the other department is doing, etc. That's a good thing because the workmanship is top notched.

    Checkered or smooth?

    Looking again at Zig Zagger's 686 with smooth grips, I really like the way they look. Kinda looks like it might just jump in your hand. I have been considering buying the checkered grips but you may have changed my mind.
    What do you guys think about the checkered as opposed to the smooth grips. I think the checkered would be a little more secure in the hand but my 686 doesn't kick that much to worry about it. Aside from the $20.00 or so difference in price, any opinions?

    My 686PP 357 Magnum with the stock, rubber, hogue, grips.

    TxP I got smooth on my .44 & .357 and they feel great plus I think they look a little better. When I shoot a gun with checker stocks on them a lot like a couple hundred rounds my hand feels it worst than with the smooth ones. Checkers just kind of dig in a little to much for a lot of shooting.

    Got me another Smith today, a 29-2 with the 6.5 inch barrel. Great bluing and trigger on this one, they don't make them like this anymore.

    i've had two smith&wesson revolvers... my first was a s&w model 13-2 that really kinda got me hooked on the firepower of a magnum round.. then i just hed to have a 6" model 27 and about 10 years ago i got a chance to trade the model 13 for a 1968 vintage model 27 6" with patrage sights... it was 95% with box and papers..... you'd really have a hard time talking me out of this one!

    LIFE IS SHORT................

    I'm getting old and I've come to that part of life where the nicest thing you can say about anything you've owned is,"I would buy another one". Am I a big handgun collector? NO Still of the dozen or so guns that I own most are S&W. IMHO there is not a finer handgun on the market period. end of subject. Yes there are others that many may beleive are better, and you know what, that's OK too. It's their money,still spent what you have wisely!
