Default Long Time Ago

My brother was a long-time S & W enthusiast, an FBI agent, a ballistics expert for the FDLE, and my mentor. A week before he passed away from cancer, about 1982, we spent a day in his favorite wilderness using up ammo. The S & W 357 and 44 mags got a good workout, along with his favorite pistol, a 45 Colt Army revolver. That was the last time I fired a handgun. Not long ago I began looking for a personal defense handgun (ó-the times they are achanginí) and the Model 19 PC Carry Comp caught my eye. In the absense of my mentor, Iíll look forward to finding answers to my questions here on the forums.

Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania!
You observe correctly - the times they are a changin'.
With that in mind, we all have things to learn, and this is a great place to soak up knowledge, opinions, and information.

Welcome from VA and condolences on your loss. My “baby” brother died of cancer too so I know how tough this can be.
