First, a Smith revolver. Always intended to make one of them my first handgun, and really couldn't ask for more. Was planning on a 686, but this boy was there at a damn nice price and for its age is still sharp and tight. The nickle finish is still quite solid. My idea of a fidget spinner.

(Mind the crappy cell phone images.. Hey, its what I got!)

Smith & Wesson Model 13-1

And I was lucky enough to then spot this about a hundred below the norm, all new in-box. Wasn't cleaned out so had to hit it up too. Just in case I have to go all Alternate 1985 Strickland on some slackers.

A nickel plated Model 13. Very cool indeed.

I agree. Hence why I got it. Everybody seems to enjoy it. Not that I'm planning to let go of it, at least not anytime soon - but still get a kick out of that.

Thanks, we all gotta start somewhere.

I also agree that H&R is a nice little spinner as well.

I got a Taurus 605 as an alternate carry gun/gun to leave at my friend's just in case (later on down the line I'm going to put together a bag of stuff like clothes, spare glasses, etc). It shoots well, is way better made than similar Taurus offerings of the past decade, and 100% definitely needs some new grips because it's much too small for me to get a good hold of. I have a holster, speedloaders, and a speedloader carrier on the way
