Hello to all from the mountains of east Tennessee. New to S&W but not new to revolvers, bought my first one in 1959, yes I am a old coot, it was a cap & ball Colt 1860 Army reproduction, still have it and still enjoy shooting it. Spent a good part of the 60's working for Uncle Sam carrying a 1911, after that got married and got into other hobbies. Have bought a few semi autos over the years, but never had the love that I have for revolvers. Opportunity came up to buy a police trade in 642 J-Frame at a great price, well I bought it and I am very impressed. First it looks like it not been shot more that five or six times, no scratches or holster marks, trigger is smooth but HEAVY, am going to get a trigger spring kit to reduce the pull. I look forward to becoming a regular member and being able to learn about S&W revolvers from all of the knowledge the members have.
