We're in bad shape here. Extreme fire danger. 94 days with no precip, and 30 days so far over 100 degrees. We have been up to 112 lately, and the record of 118 was set 40 miles west of here the other day.

That was us last summer- 90% of the boat ramps were closed - burn bans all summer - So far we're about normal this year---

For a couple of years I had a matched pair of 25-5's with 6 1/2 inch barrels, blue finish. They came in a hardwood box, it was a S&W 125-year anniversary edition. They were stolen when I was burglarized. I reported the theft and the serial numbers to the police, but that was about 2 decades ago, and have heard nothing about them since.
I'd sure like to get a 25-5 with 5 inch barrel, but they must be pretty rare.

The last time my house was broken into and guns stolen, it was a cop that did it, I pressed the issue, and all they did was get him to resign and move to Oklahoma. My guns were never recovered either.

Not surprised. I 'spect the guns were recovered long ago but the cop who recovered them has them now.

I neglected to mention, that the 25-5 designation is for the .45 Colt cartridge. The Model 25 is available in other calibers.
