Took my son and the 48 to the range today. He really likes it and hit several bullseyes. The recoil is almost nothing and is very accurate. We spent 4 hours there, he put about 200 rounds through it. His hands almost fit it perfect. I'm happy that he is happy, that is what our hobby is really about. James

Hello James
You Got that Right. Passing on the Love and admiration of classic S&W revolvers has been a time Honored pride of Ownership for Many, many Generations. It makes the collecting of them all worth it to share it with a Son or other family member. Congratulations On Passing the Tradition down to him But, ..Of Course you do Understand don't You, that this will spark the Deep Lust for Your Son to own many, many more in the future ? Hammerdown

Hello Dick
They do not come along often. Here is a Four screw model that shipped in 1961 I came across a couple of years ago.. Hammerdown

Double droll! I think I "need" one to go with a beautiful M51 I recently got.

Hammerdown, nice four inch. Were these available originally with targets and magnas? I prefer the targets myself. If I came across a four inch it would be hard for me to pass up too. Several people at the range yesterday were very interested in what we were shooting. There were folks on both sides of us shooting 22lr and 25acp that were hitting all over the paper. They noticed my 'little boy' keeping most of his shots in the red, one woman told her husband she wanted one of those. She was shooting an auto that kept jamming.

Very nice, love to see the youngsters shooting! Is the young man able to fire in double action mode yet or is he just working in single action? As a little guy, I could shoot my dad's revolver reliably in SA, but I had to get some "meat on my bones" in order to go DA with any success. Just curious as I'll be dealing with grandkids of age soon.

Blackcloud, he shoots it SA only because I told him to take his time. He can fire DA but he is still a bit shakey. He did fire my trooper with .38's in DA but it has a much softer pull. How old are your grandkids? My son turns 12 next month and he has been shooting 22lr's since the age of 5, first with a Henry mini-bolt. I had a taurus 22 nine shot revolver and then a 317 now this one will be his for a while. It is so much more fun to shoot with the family than by yourself.

I currently have two granddaughters, one 12 and the other is coming up on 4. We hope to have more down the road. The 12 year old is easily ready by age, but her mother will likely not allow it, it's an ugly divorce situation. Keep at it with your young shooter, one of these days he'll be making dad look bad! :mrgreen:
