Wanted to say hello and thanks for the wonderful place to exchange information. Briefly. I am a S&W lover only because, as a young R.L.E.O. in the mid 60's we had to purchase our own weapons. I did use the Colt revolver briefly (Python) and found it to be less co-operative than the Smiths. My best purchase was a Highway Patrolman, pre Mod. 28 that I had the factory cut the barrel to 5", TH, TT, White Outline rear & McGivern gold bead front sight. Bright re-blue instead of dull, used in Police Competition. Old 5 screw guns have such a smooth action, IMHO. Looking forward to my association here.
