Very nice. My Smith 39 was a gift to me from my father on my 21st. It had been bought for him by a coworker in 68 or 69 if I remember correctly. They had worked on a project together and after they presented the findings to congress and were done with the "team" the head researcher picked it up for him. He was never really a gun guy, so it mostly just sat in the closet forever. He said about the only time he ever had it loaded was when he'd shoot a couple rounds into the ground for 4th of july in leiu of firecrackers.

Still one of my favorites, although I rarely shoot it these days. Back then it was one of a 3 gun collection, as I was just starting. Now I have... a few more...
