    Oops, I screwed up. That's for Colt, Browning and Winchester. I do, however, have a copy of the Standard Catalogue of Smith and Wesson.

    Shoot me a PM with the serial number and I can provide you with the date of manufacture.

    My Apache bow and arrow set are from the early 1800s but it is not my EDC.

    I used to carry a Walther P38, circa 1942. Nazi markings and all. It was a good shooter, reliable and pretty accurate. Kinda heavy by today's standards though.

    I can't believe I don't have a pic around here... I'll take one tomorrow and upload it. Pics will make this thread more interesting!

    I often carry a 1960 S&W 49 Bodyguard .38 Special. Blued all steel shrouded hammer with the original round butt wooden grips. It's got a lot of carry wear on the blued metal, but it's still tight and shoots great.

    Sweet looking S&W!! However, I would be a little nervous with that holster. The trigger is exposed and there is no thumb break to keep the hammer forward.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    "Sweet looking S&W!! However, I would be a little nervous with that holster. The trigger is exposed and there is no thumb break to keep the hammer forward. "
    I am primarily a Revolver man. Never put finger in trigger until ready to fire and I fire DA, ALWAYS! Springs are all factory and the piece has a heavy pull. No different than a Glock.(My G23 has NY Trigger.) I hate "hair triggers" in carry pieces. I practice everyday, and no Cognac in the evening for Grandpa if he puts finger in trigger guard on drawing. It takes a lot of very conscious effort to fire weapon, hammer cannot be pulled back "by accident". I don't tune the gun to me, I practice and tune me to the gun.

    I carry this 1960ish J frame more or less daily in the summer and sometimes as a BUG in colder weather

    Firewall, judging by the cylinder release, it looks more like 50s. I'm no expert and according to my wife I've been wrong before...lots of times too. Nice snubbie!!!!!!!

    Quite possible. The SCSW just says 1957 ends at 125000 and 1962 starts with 295000. This one is 1391XX so I figured some where in there or just "1960ish" :-) The cylinder latch didn't change until 1966. I thought about having it lettered from the factory, but I was unimpressed with the last letter I got from them

    Ok, I can't beat some of these guns, my EDC is a 1979 Charter Arms Undercover in 38 Special. When I found it, cleaning out my fiancee's Dad's house after he passed away it had the origonal wax paper packing and box, plus the receipt for the gun and 50 rounds of ammo from a sporting goods store. All 50 rounds of ammo were still in the box. The gun was never fired. I traded the gun for a couple of bundles of shingles, plus installation for the roof of his house. I changed to the combat grips for clearance for the speedloader.
