S&W Revolvers 1857 to 1945
I am writing a books, which takes place in LA, in the late 1940's.
My Protagonists is a PI, and WWII vet .
I have him carrying his issued Colt 1911A1 , along with a backup revolver.
I had been originally thinking 38 .special, However I'm now thinking of kicking it up to a .357 Mag.
