    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Nice! The 19 is a terrific revolver. The frame size and weight make it perfect for a snubby.

    No matter the size a Model 19 is a classic.

    Oh yeah! Great thread! Great first post! Grateful to see the neato photo of the 2 1/2-inch Model 19!

    Models 19s and 66s along with their fixed sight counterparts the Model 13s and 65s are the finest carrying .357 Magnums on the planet. Concealable, slickest actions, and 6 shots. What's not to like?

    Great personal self-defense revolver.

    Looks like you were in the right place at exactly the right time.

    Nice find. The 2.5" versions are great for carry and they don't stay on gun store shelves long in my neighborhood. The S&W Model 19 is sweet in any barrel length.

    I need to find one of those. I have a 3" Model 65, but would love to find a 2.5" K-frame...preferably a Model 10.

    Nice pistol.

    I owned one at one point in my past. I traded it back when I went semi-auto for daily carry.
    Not one of my wiser moves.
