Re: S&W Model 19

6pt, Hey! Me too! My dad bought me a brand new 6" 629 when I graduated from high school. For the princely sum of 350 bucks. :shock: I've always liked Smith's. I just shoot them better than the other DA revolvers. Last few years I've been itching for a 4" N. Mountain Gun would be nice. I know I'd st...

Re: S&W Model 19

I’ve got a 19-2 4” that I picked up a year or so ago . I like it well enough . I’d like to find a modestly priced 19-2 2 1/2” but only time will tell . Over the last few years I’ve been hung up on Smith’s with pinned barrels and recessed cylinders . Certainly not a necessity but always nice to have .

It reminds me of the 22 TCM that was developed for the 1911 - you could sort of call it a 'short fat [non]magnum' :D
I shot a Rock Island 1911 in 22 TCM at Rock Islands indoor range in Davao a couple weeks ago . Very pleasant recoilwise but noisewise it put me in mind of a 22 Jet .

I’ve seen release single triggers , double release and release pull triggers . I never liked shooting skeet or trap for that matter with a release trigger person . If they got broken targets out the house it was a royal PITA to get the gun opened etc and it would throw the rythem of the squad off .
