    So today I was rummaging through the old gun cave and found an old case I've had locked up forever. I knew what it was the second my eyes hit it, never forgot her just kinda let her sleep awhile. Anyways in the case resided two guns, one a no dash model 60, and the other something special. The very first gun I ever purchased. Took awhile to find her as I had a very specific requirements for my first purchase, I knew exactly what I wanted. A model 19, 2 1/2 inch barrel, round butt grips, and sure enough that's what I bought. Finally found her used, an old police trade in wearing some strapless pachmyr grips. Here she is fellas, my S&W Model 19-3 Combat Magnum. Be kind, she's got some visible character on her.

    Very nice, you should give her a carry tomorrow.

    I traded my first handgun in, a Beretta 92fs, and I regret it deeply.

    Both great ccw revolvers......

    Those Pachmayr grips on the 19 are not good for ccw.....too grabby on clothing.

    The Uncle Mike's boot grips on the 60 are great......not grabby!

    I'd love to have that 19......and got a 60 just like yours.....:supergrin:
