Default Thanks...I think?

I had a nice collection of Smith's from the time I was 17 till 23 years old when I got married.

I ended up with zero Smith's until my dad gave me my grand dad's little I frame pre model 30 in 2016.

I cherish that revolver, and started missing my model 60, so in June 2016 I posted about buying another model 60...thinking that would be all I wanted.

Two years later I ended up with a dozen Smith's. I know it's a fraction of what most of you guys have, but they mean the world to me, and I feel completely satisfied now... I may need a pre lock 63, wouldn't mind a 4" 66, maybe a model 68, then I'd probably want a 69 just to round off the numbers... 60, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, and 69.

I blame you all!

Nice collection. I think you need some with 6" or longer barrels though. Maybe a nice 686, 29, 27, or 586 would be good.

There's a 686 in there, only 6" barrel I'd want is the model 68...pretty sure it only came in 6".

Your experiences are not totally uncommon, somehow very few of the ladies, truly, understand how important a guys’ stuff to him. One of my exes had 200 pair of shoes, but thought it was senseless that I had four revolvers.

Ya still married?

Nice collection, and you are WAYYYY ahead of me. Just as someone pointed a shortage of 6" and longer barrels, I note a heavy presence of round butt frame models. Methinks you need to offset this with square butts.

Nope, but if we hadn't been together so long I'd swear she was your ex!

Very nice. You need to diversify further in caliber....maybe a model 57 and 58.......or even a 24...you are a long way from done.

GOOGLE Broome’s Firearms in Fitzgerald, GA. Harvey Broome has a gift for coming up with fine vintage firearms. Not the least expensive place to shop but Harvey is a honest man to deal with.

Very nice bunch!

I see two problems. That little blue .32 Hand Ejector and that sole Centennial (is it a 642?) look mighty lonely. You need a .32 Regulation Police (or Model 31) and at least one more Centennial (I suggest a Model 640 Pro) for balance.

You'll never really be finished, you know.

Not even close. I se no Model 19, no Model 15, nor a Model 29... And there's no nickel guns at all. You need to reevaluate your definition of "completely" satisfied...

My first Smith was a shiny brand new nickle 4" model 10 that my dad bought me when I graduated high school, that following Christmas I got a shiny new nickle 4" model 19.

Then I found they made the same in stainless, and traded them to him for a new stainless 64, and 66.

Always been into stainless, but since I have all the 3" K's in stainless, the thought of a 3" 10, and 13 have crossed my mind. Would love a 3" 19, but I hear their pretty rare.
