    Nice S&W collection. I dabbled in K-frames for a number of years, but sold them off for my J-frame addiction. I like the rear sight on the 659. Thank you for sharing. john

    I like the Model 10 in the pix and wonder what year it was made?

    There may be an 18 1/2" 870 somewhere abouts. With a 115 lumen LED light, an extended magazine, a collapsable stock, and a six round side saddle.

    Very nice. I had both a 659 and a 459 back in the day. I think that 459 is right for the single stack stainless model.

    There is just something special about friends and family getting together and discussing the days events. That family picture above just looks cozy sitting around the table sipping their coffee talking about those Anti-Gunner fools.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaay back in the 80's I had a 659 but got rid of it after a few years. I wish I still had it do to the wider range of ammo for them now. Nice guns ya got there.
