    Smith and Wesson 4" Model 10.

    Followed by a S&W J-frame snubby in .38 caliber.

    Remember, 5-rounds are enough. :couch:

    +WT !!! I own a M10-5 Skinny bbl(4in), and a M442 (J frame).
    Both great shooters. My EDC is a G19, or a Sig226. The 442 will be in a jacket pocket as a BUG. My Wifey favors the M10 and 2 speedloaders in her nightstand. No argument there. She knows best!

    I am looking to buy a Revolver by the end of this year. I am leaning towards the Ruger GP100 or the SP101 with the 3" barrel in .327 Federal Mag. I have been doing extensive research and many of the so called experts have been saying that the .327 Magnum is the Ideal revolver round! I did have A SP101 many years ago but sold it to a friend and wish I did not. I know the .327 Federal is on the expensive side of Revolver ammo and sometimes hard to find but I am thinking of the Ruger SP101 with a 3" Barrel in the .327 magnum with the 6 shot cyl.

    Nice collection. I'm going to nitpick though and say it's impossible for your 586 to he from '78, as they weren't introduced until 1980/81. From '87, sure thing.

    Also, to the poster calling his Model 19 a Combat Masterpiece, the 19 is the Combat Magnum. A Combat Masterpiece is a .38 Specia-only K-frame, later the Model 15. I say this having owned a Model 19, a Model 15 and currently a Combat Masterpiece. (And I formerly owned a Model 586 from 1982 as well.)

    Any revolver owner/collector should have a medium frame .38 or .357 revolver, preferably a S&W but a Colt will do as long as you're not planning a lot of hard and fast DA shooting with it. Rugers are acceptable as well, they're just a bit cruder than the other 2 big names.

    I have always thought of the Smith and Wesson Military and Police 38 (Model 10) to be "everyman's gun." Specifically, the 4" tapered barrel model.

    Rock Island Armory Model 200, because why buy one S&W Model 10-14, when you can triple-wield M200's for less?

    My choices are simple, a Model 49 (Humpy), Model 28, and the one I most desire to own again, the Model 686 CS-1 3". Since there are only about 1500 of those remaining, I doubt that will ever happen again.

    I hear you. I have a 686 and 586 that I bought NEW in the early 80’s. I would guess that over 60% of members on this forum weren’t alive then.

    You don’t have to go much further than that. I might add a 29 tough.

    That’s true.

    It’s just hard for me to call them classic when they don’t even have pinned barrels.

    I understand fully. In my “other collecting” world I differentiate between “classic” and nostalgic. Nostalgic is really only important to me because of my personal history.

    I love Smiths and you have the most beautiful examples I’ve seen in a single collection. Thank you for the great pics.
