Default 357 Merry Christmas

My wife and son presented me with a wonderful Christmas gift this morning. A S&W Registered Magnum! It is a beautiful gun, retaining almost all of the finish. I will post pictures soon. I am sending a request to Roy for a letter. I believe it came from another member here, and I would like to thank him for making it available. This 6 1/2: gun has pre-war grips, Patridge front sight and the fantastic, deep blue finish that makes them so desirable. I am deeply grateful to my family for this one. Shotgunner

I have been collecting Smiths for 30 years, and have been a member of this site for a long time, just have not been active. Looking to change that. Thank you. Shotgunner

That's quite the gift! You're a very luck family man. Congrats, and Merry Christmas to you!

BTW, no one believes you until we see it!

Like sigp220.45, I am speechless.

I have heard of family gifts of a new 22 or something like a Glock or M&P, but a Registered?

Wow. Just.............. Wow. (To quote one of our resident retired FBI agents!)

I am very impressed b y all the replies. I am blessed with a wonderful family. I retired and started a gun store, It grew faster then I imagined. My son graduated from the Gunsmithing school in Colorado. We put up a new building. The three of of, my wife my son and I run the store, specialize in used guns. We all get along. The 3 of us shot 2 rounds of skeet on Christmas afternoon. I am a very lucky guy. Shotgunner
