Oh how I truley miss the days of "real" guns; when they were made of metal and wood. The 2nd and 3rd Gen Smiths, Pythons, real bluing on polished metal, Colts galore, and the only plastic to be had was the box they came in. Ah, but those days are nearly gone and are all but a memory to those that really appreciate craftsmanship and their intrinsic beauty. Oh well. I buy 'em while I can and cherish the memories.
