    Neat find

    It was just laying there in the showcase at a local gun shop I visit ofen. A S&W Model 31-1!! Pristene condition, 2" barrel. It looks like it has never been fired--not even a line between the lock up holes on the cylinder. A nice addition to my collection--not! The "war dept"(wife) has cabbaged on to it and proclaims it as her own. Pretty cool, a J frame with a 6 shot cylinder. .32 S&W Long aint the most powerful round out there, butit is better than throwing rocks.

    OH--I got it for $350 and the dealer threw in a used holster that has seen better days but fits it like a glove and a box of ammo.

    Now I have to order shellholder, dies and bullets and the little lady will be good to go with a pistol that looks good and shoots as good as it looks.

    Nice revolver, but I wouldn't be particularly comfortable with a .32 as a defensive round.

    Pics??? Hey I am an Olde Farte with little computer knowledge. A "floppy" is more like a body part than something that works my computer.

    Do have a digital camera--it is smarter than I am.

    Still a pretty gun tho.
