    S&W Revolvers 1945 to Present
    I finally pulled out a gun my dad gave me in my early 20"s. I thought is was a Clint Eastwood gun. Not really, but a 357 Magnum. After Father's Day this year I embraced it more and wanted to know more since I lost him when I was 23. Now almost 30 years later I am researching to find out more...
