Default Ladysmith find.....

A gun club member approached me to discuss his grandmothers old S&W...
He told me he wanted to sell it. I asked about condition, and he told me it was a beater, but tiny.....
I had a tingle, but didn't get my hopes up too high......

A 2nd Model Lady....condition actually acceptable...
She won't win a beauty contest like the 3rd model target I found this year, but not too bad!



Here is the beauty I found earlier....all of a sudden I have TWO!

I just recently acquired my first I frame guns, a Pre-30 and a .22/32 Kit Gun from 1952. I am in awe of the workmanship in these. It rivals any .44 HE I have. Nice find, Lee H.

There was a pretty nice blue one at last weekend's B'Ham gun show but at $1500 I had to leave it there.
Someone needs to post some pics with one of these next to a N frame to show just how small they are. Hint hint.
