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.
Nice score, wheel guns are sweet.
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.

I love mine. Let my dad borrow it to get certified in wheel gun for his retired LEO CCW. He must love it to I'm still playing hell to get it back.
Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
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.
very nice find... Great looking gun you got!
