Default Hello from SC

Introducing myself to the forum. I am a "senior citizen" in the South Carolina upstate. I just bought my dear wife of over 50 years a pair of K frames, a Model 17 .22 and Model 19 .357. She can shoot the .22 until we get some 38 specials. It may be too much to hope for .357 mags for the next several months. She likes the revolvers because the 9mm autos are a bit hard to rack back for her.
I have a 645 and a 1917. Also into WW1 German autos. And building black powder flintlocks.
Thanks for having me on this excellent forum.

Hey Heinz!

Welcome, from a fellow SC Upstate member.
Good taste: WWI autos, and building flintlocks!

Thanks. I'm in the process of looking for a 357 revolver and just interested in whether folks are going old-school or new-design. Hope she enjoys it.

Barbsaurus, I did not make it to SCACA. I am still hiding from COVID since I have multiple risk factors.
