Default Happened upon one sweet Magnum

By chance, I found this today. It's an S&W Model 28-2 Highway Patrolman. Bottom line, the deal was right, the gun is in real nice shape, and I got it. I already put some rounds through it and it shoots beautifully. Definately, a good turn to a blah day.

Very Nice! It's tough to beat a Smith wheel gun.

I have a 4" M-28 and have always wanted a 6". Love my N-frames

What's funny, robo, is that I wanted a 4" and ended up with a 6. Go figure. I did decide to post it on Guns America for sale. If I can get market value for it, I'll part with it and look for a 4", which I see a couple out there on the net. If not, I won't have any issue keeping it. Kinda one of those things that if I get my price, ok. If not, ok also. No buyer's remorse. Just looking at things in a bigger scope.

Wow a beauty! Sounds like when I picked up my 629 classic, right place right time with the right money

I want a 6" in addition to my 4". The 4" is much more common. I would never sell a gun just to get one with a different barrel length. Keep them both. The only thing worse than buyer's remorse is sellers remorse.

The wood will sell the gun but will not add to the fun of shooting hot rounds through or at least IMHO. A friend has two sets of grips, one for the range/ woods & one for show. I just can't afford the wood.
