Those are some nice looking Highway Patrolman revolvers. I don't collect them, but have this one, N925 shipped in May 1970 that I shoot. I added the walnut target stocks.

Hunter.
Yes I use a light box, sort of. It is home made and never looks the same twice. Works best outdoors with natural light. It is all a big experiment and learning curve. The three pics posted were selected from 45 different shots took this morn. Digital cameras and the ability to screen and adjust color balance make the pics look OK. I reject many shots because I see way to many flaws. I took 80 pics of a Nickel Pre 27 yesterday and I could see my face and camera in 70 of them. It was hard to find a good pic in the bunch.

Sir.
Nice 28, they are more friendly to shoot with big grips/stocks. You seem to set the standard for taking excellent pics. Do you have to delete a lot of marginal shots or are you a "One shot, One good pic" photographer??

Great guns and pics Bills !! B-)

I have a couple like I guess we all should ..........






The four inch is a 28-2 but is unfired and really un touched !! Theres no turn line on the cylinder and no drag line on the recoil shield . I think I`ve opened it once or twice in the couple years I`ve had it .
The six inch is a four screw that really has`nt been shot much . I rescued it from a local shop since for some reason sat there for months !!

Well done Bill. A 4" 28 no dash is my favorite revolver. I have a 6" 28-3 {given to me by my wife, the gun that started my S&W addiction} but the 4" N Frame 357 is about as good as it gets

Here's a Pre 28 6" I picked-up at the San Franscisco Gun Show last summer. SN is S1288XX, making it a pretty early one.
Lock-up is still solid and shoots great.

This HP was shipped 9/54 to a hardware store in Seattle, and I was born in nearby Auburn 7 months later. It still wears its original stocks.
