Anyway, S&W was happy with me (and a few other guys from the Firearms and Tactics Section) and they sent us our revolvers as I described mine to you.
For the record, the gun has sat for the last 25 years in its mahogany case, never even opened the cylinder!
That sure is one good looking revolver you have there!
