Hello everyone. New to the forum but I must say I love it so far. A little about me. Paramedic by trade. Previous military and proud of it. Father of 2 and my children recently won their first 1st place shooting awards. 10 y/o daughter with her ar15 and my 8 y/o son with his sub- compact 1911 / 22lr. What brought me to this forum.....was going through my safe and came across my mom's S&W 38 special. I wanted to find out when it was manufactured. I believe it was in 1955, from the data I obtained on this forum. It's a .38 Chiefs Special Airweight model No. 37. Serial number is as follows......J69XXX. I don't ever remember this firearm being discharged. My mother would carry it when we would travel to Wisconsin for vacation. I was trying to get a value, for insurance reasons. If I can I will post a picture of the firearm. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
