    You have my permission to go and find a 639 to make yourself feel better. Cheaper than a blued steel one.

    Oh, USA
    Pretty gun.

    IIRC my first OJT trainer participated in the AF trials for those. Not sure exactly what -#. He liked the gun, I think he bought one when he got out to go home and work for the Indiana State Police.

    IIRC the ISP were the first "big" LE agency to adopt the 39

    Actually, the 539 is basically the same thing as a steel 39.

    Very nice

    The 539 is fairly rare. They were only built between 1982 and 1985 and only about 5000 or so were made.

    That's not many compared other Smith models.

    You don't know how many times I've thought about getting a cut of a similar shade carpet, and about 15 highpoints to do a layout and post under "BAC's arsenal unveild"

    Dam that's one fantastic looking piece! Congratulations! :cool:

    I'd really like to know what gun shops you go to. The places I frequent don't ever have that nice of stuff! You seem to always have all the luck! :supergrin:
