Your overwhelming enthusiasm is blinding Saxonpig....ok, I'll take it, just so you don't feel so bad. Honestly, the attraction is the same as for the Model 10. This is a straight forward, purpose built gun. One reason for it to exist, and that is self defense at a short range. The problem was that Smith didn't market the ammunition properly. Everyone started using magnum loads instead of the lighter defense load, and LEO's who weren't used to the recoil couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it. Too bad, 'cause they came out with the .40 S&W which did exactly what this one was supposed to, only in a semi.
