    I 'acquired' my first model 60 in Vietnam in 1969 as a BUG. There were a lot of 1911's, and 4 inch Model 10's but as a grunt exposed to all the tropics had to offer, I wanted stainless, and small. I had a shoulder holster made of water buffalo in Quang Tri. Though I never had to use it in combat I was sure glad I had it. 40+ years later I still own a model 60, and a few other stainless J frames and carry one daily. In those 40+ years i have been through almost every make, and model, handgun made, but I will always have a J frame close by.

    My brother in law, who is also a shooter, and I made a pact. When I die he will put a J frame in the casket with me. When he dies he wants a Glock 19. Obviously he has NO taste in fine weapons, but hell. My sister seems to like him.

    I'm keeping one 32-1 and its 4" counterpart, a 33 or 33-1, but am looking to move several others.

    As a favor to a brother, I'm buying his Mod. 60 in .38 SPL. . .so I'll be loading 200g flatpoints for that one, too :-) (And it helped him into his next pistol, too, so the saga continues!)

I purchased my Model 64 3" RB Smith from them(and had some excellent work done by Dino the gunsmith)and they did work on my Colt OM. They were down the block from John Jovino the other famous gunstore in Manhattan.

    S&W 442-1; no lock

    Here I am, just practicing my photo-fu. I'm really struggling with lighting, but I think that these turned out ok:

    My 442, post lock removal, with old school grips.

    I put in reduced springs and did a light trigger job and she's now a smooth shooter.

    Woo Hoo!
    I get to join the Snubbie Club. I picked up a S&W 642 with wood grips yesterday. Pocket holster on the way as well. Now for some range time.
