I had been wanting a S&W Model 15 for awhile. I have shot them but never owned one. I was lucky enough to find a nice 15-5 at a gun show locally on Sunday. I took it to the range this morning and put about 200 rounds of an assortment of 38 Special loads and some 38 +P as well. Shooting this fine old revolver felt like coming home to an old friend. If you like a 38 Special the old S&W Model 15 isn't bad and you don't have to worry about the cursed internal lock.
