Default How I became a Smith and Wesson fan

7 or 8 years ago the only handgun I owned was a Ruger Single Six 22 and the only other handgun I had ever shot was a Star 9mm. A friend and I were coaching a high school shooting team and he mentioned that he had a "Dirty Harry gun" and the next week brought it to practice. Although I couldn't hit anything with it, you might say I fell in love. He said he bought the gun at a deal and would sell it for what he paid. My friend, my wife and my son colluded, a word you might have heard in the news lately, and that Christmas the handgun, complete with holster, was wrapped and under the tree with my name on it. An 8 3/8" 29-2. After that it was reloading, casting, homemade shotshells and several more Smiths. I still can't shoot a handgun worth a hoot but it sure is fun trying.
