Default My Christmas present!

My wonderful husband and I visited a lgs today and I saw a s&w 360 pd that I just fell head over heels in love with. The only concern I had was that it had fiber optic sights, which I wasn't too keen on. It had a price tag of $870 so I decided that I needed to mull it over for the night (much to my husband's chagrin) and we went to another lgs to check out what they had to offer. Turns out they had the very same gun, used without fiber optic sights and with a set of Hogue grips for $699! Needless to say, mama has a new (to me!) wheel gun. We are headed out to shoot it now, but I already know I love it!!

(sorry its upside-down, Im using the app for android)

Man, I wish my wife would let me buy her a gun for Christmas……I didn't know a wheel gun of that type could go for so much.

I'm not familiar with that model but I found this at Bud's for a new gun.

The MSRP on this particular gun is $1019 (with the fiber optic front sight - GGaC's doesn't have the fiber optic front sight, and the S&W website doesn't list the MSRP for the one without it anyway).

Update: it shoots to the right a bit so we'll be sending it in to s&w to see if they can adjust it. Other than that, it shoots like a dream. I can't wait to find a bra holster for it!

It's defective and I'd take it back. The handle is on the wrong side. It is suppose to be on the bottom

Yeah so on that note... Anyone know if there's anything Smith can do to fix the point of impact issue? The front sight doesn't appear to be driftable.

My reputation did not come to me easily.
