Okay, it's not what you think. What I meant was I headed for the range tonight with my model 34 no dash (1955-1958) and my model four screw 28 no dash (1958). They are the oldest Smiths in my collection next to my K22 from 1948, and she stayed home tonight.

Here's the indoor range I shoot at. It's a private club and the nice thing about shooting at night is that I frequently have the place to myself. I believe the range is ~ 20 yards.


Anyway, as some of you know the kit gun was bought as my winter project. I promised myself that over the cold winter months I would learn to shoot this little beauty better. I'm happy to say that I am. My buddy Drew helped me out with some "meatier" grips and I think they are doing the job. I did have to chuckle as I was taking head shots with my little kit gun! These 12 were fired double action, not rapid fire but not too slowly either.


The 28 was a gun show find a little over a year ago. For $350 I think I did alright. It is all original, and like the kit gun, has the numbered diamond magnas in the safe. This gun doesn't see much use, but every time I shoot it I get a big grin and think I should shoot it more. It is very smooth, and anyone that has shot .38's in an N frame knows how enjoyable that can be.


And here they are just waiting to be cleaned. :)

Good Going Cush!

Shooting a 28 that well is not nearly as much of a challenge as head shots with a "Kit"....

I have learned over the years that these little J-22's are difficult to get to know and if you aren't faithful in your practice, good, consistent hits can be tough to come by.... adding more wood helps and I'm glad that banana-wood kindling made in onto your No-Dash before it got too cold around here.... sweeping up those medallions is alot of work after the fire goes out... :lol:

Hell Cush,

I let you borrow that Micro Converted Ruger kit gun of mine...that will get rid of all those S&W "fliers" on the target. :mrgreen:

See you Saturday,

Even our sainted big bore patron, Elmer Keith, was a fan of the .22 revolver, and readily admitted that it was the most difficult cartridge to score high with. Beware the fellow who is a master of the .22LR!
