While out and about a couple of days ago it struck me I was near my fav gun pusher's shop... so I decided to stop in...

After digging through old Remington Mod 8 semi autos, assorted Winchester pump .22s, a stack of Remington .22 pumps, some old High Standard .22 Target pistols and a few Colt's Woodsman pistols along with other assorted stuff I discovered he had a few new S&W revolvers of interest...

He had a nice M624 6" early production gun along with some other stainless S&W revolvers and a really nice 945 .45 auto... nice, but no lights flashed and no bells rang... The M629 and the M657 didn't set off alarms either... nor did a very nice Winchester M1895 or M1885 shotgun...

Then I noticed in one case he had what seemed to be a N frame S&W... and sure enough it was... an as new in box M28-2... one of my fav guns... and it was a 6" barrel version to boot... The gun also had original box, papers etc. with it... a VERY hard thing to pass up...

Given that I already have ... uh... ahem... "some" M28s already I thought I would be strong and just say no.... but the old gun kept calling me...

Well thought I... I know someone who also likes N frame guns...so I dug the cell phone out of my pocket, turned it on (if I keep it off I dont have to fill it up with electricity as often) and called a friend who likes N frames... it seemed like a gun he would like... and I could escape the siren call of the M28... ;D What a deal...

Unfortunately, he had other irons in the fire and didn't want the 28.... so I decided to be strong... after all.. I can walk stop buying any time I want.... Right? ::) Just turn away and forget the M28....

So that is what I did.... briefly.... :-/


Anyway, here are the pics of the new M28-2... I'm glad I got the gun... it is very nice... I just wish these things couldn't talk to me... :cool:











Still, it is good to know I CAN stop when I really want to... ;D

Really nice. One of my favorite Smiths. They don't talk, they scream until you pick them up. Congrats.

Ooooooooooo. That is a really nice revolver. There is something special about Highway Patrolmans. (Patrolmen?)

Great score Chuck! I'm curious about the age, do you mind sharing, I recently acquired a 28-2 and mine dates to 1979, my interest is very high on these models at the moment.

Very nice find Chuck. You said something in your post that caught my attention. Besides collecting S&W's, I also collect High Standard 22 pistols. Would you mind telling me what that dealer had & where he is located at, I might want to contact him about the High Standards. Thanks.

The name of the store is Deer Hunter in Clearwater Florida.

He had several High Standards... including a very nice WWII era semi auto .22 in the original box...

I don't seem to have their card at hand... I'll have to get you the phone number tomorrow... Dan is a great guy and will be happy to tell you what he has...

BTW, where are you in Louisiana? That is where I grew up...

My family home is in Point Coupee Parish... I went to LSU in fact.

We lived in both Lake Charles and Bossier City while I was growing up.

If you are interested in the HS pistols, you might give Dan a call... he is a really nice guy... he might hold for you.
