Went looking for a box or two of ammo and to fondle some guns at a store. Found a ~99% S&W 28-2 with target grips and 6" barrel marked down to the point where I couldn't pass it up. Was really in the market to find a model 19, but I guess I have another N frame now. They also had a pretty decent Model 12 Winchester over in the shotgun rack for $395. If I wasn't counting pennies I would have brought that one home with me too.
Gave the pistol a thorough going through, and I would be willing to bet that it hasn't had more than a couple of boxes of rounds through it, even the turn ring on the cylinder is incredibly faint. Lockup and timing are impeccable, something that I would expect from a P&R S&W. You can definitely see the difference in finishes between the 27 and 28 when you have them side-by-side. However, I had no model 28...I have fixed that dilemma now.
Merry Christmas to me.
