    Way To Go Friend !!!

    I too have found myself in the exact same situation as you.
    I had been carrying a Glock 17 for quite some time and it suddenly one day dawned upon me -how much I'd missed carrying that good old S&W Model 66 I once owned and so foolishly traded away.
    Now, don't get me wrong, I Love Glock Pistols. It's just that I appreciate the ability to load the revolver to suit many different situational needs, i.e. Shotshells, Wadcutters, Hollow Points etc... You get the picture.
    Well, to make a long story short, I purchased not one, but two S&W Model 19's to take up the slack. You see, I operate a Cattle Feedlot, so I NEED 2 guns. LOL. One for carrying around as my "everyday working gun" and another as my "Sunday go to Mass" gun.

    Good trade. I have a 19-5 that I bought back in the 1980s. I'll never part with it.

    Very attractive revolver that most definitely radiates "all business."


    A firearm to be proud of. Congrats!

    I've learned the hard way to never get rid of a gun - you will eventually miss it and want it back.

    In your case, however, dumping some plastic for that beauty was a good decision.

    A 19 with a 2 1/4" barrel was my first 357. I shot it almost to pieces, and being an idiot, I sold it for more than I paid. $175.00, and I still miss it. It was 1 of 4 guns that I've sold in my life.

    Bet you'll find yourself loving it! Matter of a fact, got a 19-3 on my hip right now.

    Makes a dandy ccw gun once the cold weather brings out the heavy sweatshirts and jackets.
