    First time shooting my new 60

    I shot my s&w 60 for the first time today. For starters it is a beautiful gun with just the right amount of weight to keep it from recoiling as bad as the lcr's. It shoots great, I loved the way it handles. Its a very nice gun. I brought it home and gave it a good cleaning. I think I made the right decision in getting this gun. Now I am waiting for my pink grips to come in and the holster my husband ordered for me and I'll be good to go. Soon as I get my grips in I'll post some pics.

    Glad it pleased you Pinklady. Hopefully your set up fits nicely. Now get some snap caps, practice dry firing ( double, and single action, some double taps, etc ). Practice presentation from the holster, re loads, Keep it near, and keep it safe.

    Best of Luck!

    Which holster did you decide to go with? Looking forward to full report on gun, stocks and holster.
