Some people always want to argue with me when I suggest the 58 didn't work well for its intended purpose.

I guess I'm wrong. The 58 was the perfect law enforcement weapon. Most officers found its weight a dream to pack. They also found the reach to the trigger to be quite manageable, even by cops with small hands. The recoil was but a mere slap on the palm. That's why it was a raging success, adopted by many, many departments and proved to be the biggest seller in S&W history as it is so versatile as a sporting pistol.

Oh, wait...
