    Well, it's been over 20 years since I bought something I've never owned before. Firearms related that is. Recently anything I've purchased has been as a back-up to something I already own or as a replacement for something I used to own. Well, not this time. I have never owned a 625 before and I have to say that I am really impressed.

    My daughter and I went to our local range to try it out right after I picked it up. We bought 2 boxes of Blazer 230gr ball ammo figuring it would be enough to get a feel for it.:rofl: I ended up firing only 8 rounds out of the two boxes we bought. Apparently my daughter now has a new 625-3. I knew I should have bought two of them. Anyways, here's a pic for ya.

    And any information on what I have here from the S&W experts would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy. -Goodspeed

    Sweet.
    5 inch?
    Moon clips?
    Half moon?
    Third moon?
    I almost bought the same thing, but went with the 624 (.44 special).
    Maybe the 625 will be next.

    Thanks, we thought so too. Yeah, it's a 5". I received 10 full moon clips and 12 "doubles" as he said (third moon). No half moons were included. I have to say, what a sweet trigger this thing has. My daughter had an absolute blast at the range with it and she doesn't even like revolvers. Except for this one I guess. I sure hope I don't start buying more of these in the near future. That's all I need. :supergrin:

    EDIT: Oh yeah, he also included the tool to remove the casings from the clips. Man that thing comes in handy.

    Thanks. :wavey:

    So far we have 900 rounds through it with no malfunctions of any kind. I think it must be that the factory magazines are just that good. Oops, I mean clips. :supergrin:

    They are nice. Mine shoots like a surgical laser. Very accurate and easy to handle.

    Congratulations. That is one fine revolver. I used to have one and foolishly let it go a few years ago when times were rough. I SO regret selling that revolver. It was the only S&W revolver I have ever owned other than a J-Frame. For the last year or so, I have really wanted another one and S&W doesn't make the five inch barrel anymore :steamed: I've seen the four and a two and a half or three inch, but the five inch has the best feel to me. There was an older fella at the outdoor range where I used to go shooting when I took my 625 to shoot it for the first time. He convinced me to shoot lead ammo in mine and had a lot of really good reasons for it, too. I used to load a 200 grain H&G #68 at about 850 fps and that revolver would put all six rounds into one ragged hole at twenty-five yards. I actually pray that S&W will one day make another five inch model. If for some reason I don't have the money to buy one when they make the five-inch model again, I would probably sell a danged kidney. Congratulations on (what I consider) the finest six-gun and cartridge combination to ever come out of S&W.
