    I have a pair of model 19 snubs. One is a 19-7 that I shoot plenty. The other is a 19-3. The -3 is in like new condition. It may have been fired before, but I don't see any evidence. No box, but you don't find them in this condition too often anymore so I haven't shot it. I shoot the -7 instead. It's not p/r, but it's a good shooter. Do you guys think I should shoot the older one or keep it in the safe. If I shoot it, I will probably end up carrying it.

    I wouldn't be able to resist shooting both. Is the 19-7 the stainless/nickle finish? I would probably carry the stainless/nickle as the blued version will be more susceptible to holster wear, etc. Gorgeous revolvers, btw.

    Thanks. The older one is the nicked gun. The -7 is blued, but I'm not worried about the finish on it.

    For me the enjoyment of shooting it would be worth more than any value I lost shooting it.

    I passed up buying a M19 nickel plated snubbie last year and kicked my ass for it.

    My 1980 era 2 1/2" model 19 was my most beloved gun I owned, until I just had to have the latest whiz-bang gizmo, in the gun case. Worst trade I ever made. Whatever I traded for is long gone, and sadly so is the 19. Never sell them. Unless to me. :supergrin:

    I love the model 19 2.5 inch. My favorite revolver. They just handle so well. Beautiful pair you have.
