    Well, why not just get it......

    That's what my daughter said today while patiently waiting for me to make up my mind if I wanted to be the proud owner of a 66-1.

    I love and trust my daughter, so I figured I better take her advice.

    66-1, Pinned and Recessed, excellent condition, judging by the cone it has been fired very little, if at all. In a box with the paper work and matching #'s on the end, but I don't think it is the original box because I believe they were the two pieces still when the 66-1 was coming out. I know the late 66-2 was a hinged box, but even the earlier 66-2 was two pieces I think??

    Oh well, no matter, I love my new old Smith; I suppose it would only be fair to give it to my only daughter one day, which I fully intend to do.

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.

    Thanks to all, yep she is a great girl. She has a Blue S&W 36 LadySmith, and a Classic Nickel 36 also. She likes S&W wheelies as much as me. I'll let you all know how it shoots......

    Recently picked up a 4" 66-1, amazing gun. Love it and looking for another, maybe the 6" first for range work. Looking forward to The Bride shooting it. You will love it!
