    This even poorer photo shows another S&W snubby (Mod. 642), and my sloppy presentation of the dinner I made, including the raspberry steak sauce I made using the cabernet from the first pic -

    Unfortunately, I bought some ammo recently, so I'm on a budget, thus the Taurus with beer, burger & fries, washed down with a vintage 2010 purified water ( in an eco- friendly bottle )

    I'm glad to see this thread still going. You guys are also reminding me that I've skipped lunch too.

    Mods we really need one of those.
    Ditto - that's a nice looking revolver. They still make those?

    I've been carrying this while my Kimber UC2's SuperTuck is being repaired.

    It's a nickel plated model 36. According to the serial number, it was produced sometime in 1975. From the looks of the barrel fluting and most of the other parts of the gun, I doubt it's seen more than a couple boxes of ammo throughout it's lifetime.

    I also recently picked up a Taurus M605 for the wife. Another excellent revolver.

    Sorry for the lousy picture quality. I'm working right now (drilling rig in SE WV) and don't have access to my good camera, so the phone camera will have to do.

    Classic, traditional Smith & Wesson guns look really nice all done up in nickel, don't they, Agamemnon?

    Yes they do.

    I actually passed on this revolver when I first saw it. I went down to the local FFL hoping he still had the model 60 I looked at a couple weeks prior. When I found out he sold it, I asked if he had any SP101's in stock, to which he replied that he almost never carries 'em.

    He took the 36 out to show me and while I loved the look (it came with the original wood grips), I had never owned a nickel plated gun before and wasn't sure it was the best choice for concealed carry - especially where I work (rough/dusty/dirty environment).

    Anyway, I went home and researched both the revolver and the plating and came to the conclusion that the finish would likely outlast my ownership of it, so I went back the next day and bought it.

    Still want to eventually pick up a SP101 (or a model 60), but I am thrilled with this cream puff.

    My New SP101

    Here is my SP101 I just picked up. She is plain now but I am going to get some Badger grips right away and eventually send it to Gemini Customs. I think I am going to like it alot.

    Finally got around to snapping a pic of my S&W M36 Chief's Special. I carry it daily in a Side Guard Holsters Tuck Clip IWB (other than where it's prohibited by law or "employer policy").

    Original box, most of the paperwork, and serial number in the mid 4000s. An oldie but a goodie, and been in the family since new (from what I understand).

    I know it's probably borderline collectible with the aforementioned stuff, but it's such a nice gun to carry. I honestly have no idea...

    You don't need any of us to tell you what a beautiful piece that is, but I'm telling you anyway.
