    The Python was my Fatherís and is very special to me. If they came to confiscate, Iíll hide that one in my ass if I have to. Might leave some damage on the way in and out.
    Ok everybody, here we go. Post the pics and any story that they tell.

    The .38 was my Grandfathers and I still have the holster. He wore a suit and carried a pistol everyday but had no job and lived in the hills of Kentucky and Tennessee, hmmm? I bet his hands smelled like mash.

    I believe my first revolver was either my Nagant or my Taurus M450. I bought the Taurus because it was kind of a factory custom. I have only ever seen one other like it. Someone I knew had one. I saw a third one like it but stainless and I think not ported. I do not know how many were made. It is titanium frame, snub nose, .45 Colt, ported barrel, bright spectrum blue finish with Ribber grips. It is lighter than a steel J-frame size revolver. It is kind of a handful to shoot. The ported barrel keeps the muzzle down but feels like being punched in the hand every time it is being shot. I only had two revolvers for a long time. Then a friend of mine kept talking about Smith & Wesson revolvers. He is a retired cop and carried a Smith revolver half of his career. So I bought one. Then they kept multiplying. The first was my Model 10. Then I bought other brands of revolvers. My favorite is my S&W Model 66. The Model 66 is the stainless version of the Model 19. The Model 19 is called the peace officer's dream gun.

    My Smith family. Top break, I-frame, J-Frame, K-frames, and N-frame.

    Top picture starting on left going down:

    Model 10-7: .38 Military & Police .38 Special nickel
    Model 66-2: Combat Magnum Stainless .357 Magnum stainless
    .32 Double Action 4th Model .32 S&W (.32 S&W short) nickel

    Top picture right side going down:
    Model 25-15: 1955 Model .45 Target Heavy Barrel .45 Colt nickel
    Model 60-7: .38 Chiefs Special Stainless Lady Smith .38 Special stainless
    Model 17-3: K-22 Masterpiece .22LR blued
    .32 Hand Ejector (aka postwar Pre-Model 30) .32 S&W Long blued



    My other wheel guns. A couple of Colts, Ruger, Miroku Liberty Chief, and Merwin Hulbert. I never heard of Merwin Hulbert until I saw one of my friends had this one. I bought it from him along with the Miroku. The Merwin's had better quality than S&W and Colt. I knew Miroku made shotguns for Browning and rifles for Winchester but I did not know they had made revolvers.

    Looks like Chiefs Special. 1957 Smith started giving Model names (numbers) to revolvers. If there is a screw in the trigger guard, it is a four screw. If not, it is a three screw. There will be a screw under the grip. 1905 - 1950 most Hand ejectors had 5 screws. Around 1961 trigger guard screw was eliminated. Chiefs Specials were made 1950-1999. Open cylinder. That is where model number is.

    Sounds a lot like my great-grandfather. He always carried a “ hand cannon “ according to my mother, he named it ether Lucky or Lucile.

    There will always be a spot for revolvers in my safe. First firearm I ever shot was my Dad's .38. That got me hooked. My Dad always had a few S&W K frames around and my Mom still carries a .38 snub.

    I just had my K frame 66-1 out blasting steel plates yesterday. I love reloading for this one. Everything from mild .38 to full power .357. Good times.
    Quick pic of it while I'm cleaning it.



    I think they are Hogue grips. I have the factory set still but I've been looking to get some nice fancy wooden stocks for it.

    Check out Altamont or Herrett. Herrett has adjustable wood target grips for autos. Gun shows have Smith grips too.

    Picked this up yesterday. Smith and Wesson 15-4 Combat Masterpiece. First Smith and Wesson. Thought I would see what all the fuss was about. I've always been a Colt guy. Nice revolver. Still a Colt guy.
