That's a handsome revolver!

I ordered my S&W 327 TRR8 back in the spring. It finally arrived last week. I was already planning on heading up to the cabin this weekend which gave me a peaceful place to shoot at. Timing on it all was great all things considered.
This is my first DA revolver I've fired. I've used various SA revolvers, and pistols over the years. It took a bit to get used to the heavier trigger pull. The recoil on it isn't bad at all. It's comparable to the RIA 1911 I own. Very manageable.
It should be pretty easy to conceal most of the time. I need to adjust my summer wear, but that should not be a big issue.
I need to put more rounds through it. I'm using Hornady's LeveRevolution rounds which are a heavier version of their .357 mag CD load. They fired without any issues, and are the only SD round I can buy locally without special ordering. So, that's a plus. I like being able to go to the store and buy my ammunition as needed if possible. It's a good excuse to go through the gun section and to look them over.
Now, the pictures.

That is pretty sweet! I am partial to the full lug look, but I really like that.
