In a SHOOTING TIMES magazine article published in the late 1960's or early 1970's, Skeeter Skelton wrote up a discussion of single action versus double action revolvers. There was a photograph included that had the data sheet for a Model 58 with a lineup of cartridges on it. The caption said, "Double-action .41 Mag. S&W M58 is ideal officer's and hunter's handgun. Good calibers for this gun are - left to right - .41 Mag., .45 ACP & AR, .44 Spl., .45 Colt, .38-40 and .44-40."

I always assumed Skeeter took the photo and wrote the caption, as it looks like the other pictures in the article were provided by him, most including him in them holding some of his favorites.

The Model 58 is a very business-looking sixgun, to be sure.
