OldManMontgomery, I couldn't agree more with that statement!

I've said it before and here again, "There's just something about a vintage Smith wheel gun in the N or K frame models. Like a vintage M1911A1, the history seems to morph from the ageless stocks into the shooter's hand and provides us with a glimpse of brilliance from the giants who's shoulders we walk on. (Elmer Keith, Jack Weaver, Col. Charles "Boots" Askins, Thell Reed, Jerry Miculek to name a few.)"

^ Smith & Wesson model 29-2, P&R. Manufactured in 1980. "'ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" - Harry Callahan

And there are two answers to your question: Why revolvers?

^^those Smiths are nice. I have had both the 19 and 29 and they are fine shooters. Wish I didn't sell them.

True . I just mean that even Rugers and Smiths aren't any less intricate.
