    Well, should be nearing the receipt of my refinished Model 28. It went to SW on 3/4/13 so it's
    been a little over 4 months.

    The one I have a line on is a 1970 model. Don't know that I can be the guy to buy it and fire a
    43 year old NIB gun. I don't have safe queens.Buy it and shoot it. From all i've read, they're
    tougher t...

    A 1972 Model 28 is FAR superior to a newly made version. The MIM parts used now are inferior to
    the old forged parts. $600 for a pre-lock 28? Freaking awesome! I would'nt give $400 for a new
    oneThink ...

    Not to be nosy but what did you give for the gun? I know where there is a NIB Model 28 for $600
    that I've been thinking about for quite awhile. I think they are great looking guns. Congrats
    on getting...

    What kind of refinish did you have done? The 28 originally came from the factory with more of a
    matte blue.The only rebluing SW offers now is the "Blalck Pentrate.". More of a black than blue
    but all ...

    I've been wanting a Model 28 for quite a while and finally found what looked like a good deal
    at a show a couple months ago. Highway patrolman 4", tight all seems mechanically good but was
    not well ca...

    Had one for a very brief time. My son summed it up when he said, if you were using it for sel
    defense, if you pushed it against your target you'd have a 50-50 chance of hitting it. I
    realize you,can't...

  • Posted in thread: what was everyones first gun? on 04-28-2012 at 03:12 PM
    After the obligatory Red Rider Carbine BB gun, guess I was about 12 - that'd been around 1950.
    A JC Higgins .22 semi rifle. Dad kept the ammo in his dresser but I knew where it was. Scared
    many a squi...

    I'm on my second single six. Had my first for several years and then a guy made me an offer I
    couldn't refuse. So, sold it and went right to my LGS and bought another. They're well made,
    strong as a t...
