    Share the love, let's see your Model 15s

    Went to the LGS today just to see if they might have something I just could live without. Wouldn’t you know it; there in the showcase was this Model 15 quietly whimpering take me home. Well the price was right and not being one to pass up a good buy I filled out the 4473 paid the money and now it is mine. I do have a preference for the 357 and do own a couple Model 19s but another nice K frame is hard to pass up.

    Looks like you picked a good one. The Model 15 is one of my favorites.

    Your new revolver has a lot of nice blue finish on it. It's sporting a pinned barrel so predates 1981. It'll be a nice, accurate addition to your handgun collection.

    The Smith & Wesson Model 15 .38 Special revolver is a gun that most here on the Forum would find a joy to shoot at the range whether they realize it or not. It also would make an outstanding home defense handgun with the right loads.

    Here's the Model 15 kept around here. It was produced in 1967.

    Never saw a k frame I didn't like. M15 is on my list.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    When I served in the USAF Security Police in the 70's our sidearms were Model 15's 4" bbl with LRN ammo,they carried them until they started issuing the Berettas,Aircrews were issued Model 15 snubbies and carried them in shoulder holsters under their flight suits.

    When I saw the title on the thread, I wondered how many posts I'd have to scroll through until I saw Brian post one of his beauties... and you didn't disappoint!

    As aircrew we did carry the 2 inch models but we qualified with the 4 inch. For ammo we carried 3 rounds of "bean bag" loads and three rounds of JHP.
