    Stopped in my local fun store. Their prices are high on new stuff but they have this little used handgun counter and they consistently have been my downfall over the years. Always a good deal if you time it right. Anyway, they had this like new old Smith Centennial 640 stainless for $340 and I couldn't walk away!!!

    Joined with a no dash no lock 442 I bought from the same shop 4 weeks ago for the same price!

    Did I do good? Pay no attention to the date. My son's camera and the date is wrong.

    I've got a nickel 3" 36-1, and a blued 3" 36 no dash, and I bet mine like me every bit as much as yours like you.

    They have grown quite fond of me and the feeling is mutual. ;)

    You pretty much stole both of those; especially from a store/shop.

    While the current J frames are good revolvers (especially the few that are showing up with no lock), those older ones with the one-piece barrel and "skinny" frame are still the best, IMO.

    Congrats! I just picked up a nickel 640-1 a few weeks ago. I'm growing very fond of it. My favorite J frame thus far.

    Nice pickup. Congrats. I am certainly jealous. Love my 642 no-lock, but that is nice.
