    Thanks Curt360, happy to join all the other lovers of S&W's.
    I also have a 29-2 that I've had for 25 years, and a 19-5 that is my shooter. I will post photos of them later but I have a question.
    How does everyone feel about the fact that this 66-1 looks like it has never been fired, would you fire it, or let it be the safe queen?
    I have an opinion but I would like to hear others opinions as well.

    Me I would fire it, then put it back in the safe and fire my other stuff more. Geez guys thanks I dont feel right after reading and seeing all of the great revolvers on this thread, as I dont own a 66. I have 2 19's but no 66. Probably will remedy that next year as I have blown my personal budget for this year.

    Really, there is not much difference between shooting a M-19 or a M-66.........they shoot the same ammo. The 66 is Stainless Steel, but that doesn't make it shoot any better! I don't have a M-19, but I don't care....I have a M-66-1, and I don't shoot it. I use my M-10-7......which is good enough for me. (and I can still hear something? What????) Bob

    I did take it to the range and shot it along with my 19-6. I ran 38's and 357's through it, cleaned it thoroughly, lubed it, and placed it back into the safe. I may not shoot it again but I figure a pistol in my safe that has never been shot could just as easily be a brick.
