I've got my Great Grandfather's old service revolver. It's a 4" Smith and Wesson in .38 Special. Not sure of the model but the most recent patent number on it is 1914. It's too loose to shoot now but I shot it often back in the 70's.
I enjoy many threads on GT none more than this one, my first handgun was a Ruger Single Six. Traded it away and a stack of cash for my second, a blued Redhawk. I was way late to the Glock and now it's my choice of carry. I'm an inbetweener on many subjects, right there on the border of wondernines coming into vogue and revolvers going on the back burner. I will always love revolvers their construction and design is amazing from pocket carry to long range hunting firearms. I have to mention i habeas one in the stable that I've not yet shot that may just take the number one slot.
