hello peeps! I went to the fun shop yesterday on my way to work and this used S&W model 60 in 357 caught my eyes, i did not have a chance to inspect it becs there wasn't enough time so I came back today and the second i held it I knew I will get it!, it is balanced like the sp101 that i used to own(also 3in),so long story short i traded my SR9C which i like :( but i really like the 357 cartridge so i decided what the heck anyway here itvis with my Ruger SP101 also in 357 mag..
I can see how it caught your eye, that's a lot a gun...nice buy!

Your going to love it, I have a model 60 and a model 66, love them both. There is two beers for us each.

As a matter of fact, I love that gun. If I can't find a 3 inch model 65 soon, one of those will be my next purchase. 357 mag power, classy concealable, carry all day revolver. What a gun!
Very nice... I'm been going back and forth between one of those and a 3" Model 65...

Is the barrel on the model 60 a 4"? It sure looks longer than the sp101's barrel.
Nice looking smith.
Can't go wrong with a Mod 60.

I was able to try them both yesterday and the SP101 tends to handle full loads of 357 slightly better than the 60, maybe becs its a little bulkier, my 60 I think was shooting a tad high at 9yds but the sp101 shoots POA=POI, the 60 has a better SA pull than the Sp101 maybe becs it was slightly used already, using the DAO on both is something i have to get use too, they are both easy to conceal, I use Blackhawk IWB holster size 3, all in all they are both fine revolver for what it is design for, selfdefense at 5 to 7 yards , I feel well armed with any of the 2, i usually carry them with the hornandy critical defense 357 mag 125gr FTX + 2 speed loader..I highly recommend this 2 and i this a coming from a guy who loves 1911 in 45acp..
