    New range gun

    Well, I went and did it. Last weekend I picked up a new S&W 60-15, 3" 357. Reminds me a bit of the old K frames. I thought I was done with 38 revolvers, but, what can I say, I love revolvers.



    I've been carrying my snubbie for months now, and the Sig P232 had become a safe queen. With the price of 380 ammo, I am not shooting it much anymore, so I put it on consignment.

    I happened to wander into a local shop the other weekend, and there she was, a nice new S&W 60-15. My wife and the guy behind the counter started laughing, I was so in love with it.

    This morning I took it to the range. After sighting in with the first 10 rounds, I put the next three in the same whole (touching) at 7 yards. I love this thing!

    The top revolver is my 637, the bottom is my new one.

    Especially this part:

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    I fired the soon to be mine Model 36 snubbie today at the range.
    The first 40 shots into the Dot Torture targets at 21 feet and had 82% of my shots in the two inch dots.
    Fluke? nope, tried again and hit 87%
    Since that was so much fun I put up a standard target with a 1" bullseye and fired 60 more rounds, that one has a ragged 2 inch hole where the bullseye used to be.
    I'll take a wheelie over a bottom feeder anyday

    Way to go, nice guns... I too still love wheel guns but only use them now for hunting and target.

    There is something about a 3" barrel on a S&W revolver that looks just right.

    Very true Klaatue, not only does it look right, it balances beautifully. I have always thought that the 3" Model 65 was one of the best revolvers S&W ever produced. I regret the day I sold that one.

    That is a very nice looking gun you have found there. Looks like it would be fun to shoot.

    Congrats!
