Default Last weeks new find

Came across a 459 and a 4006 last week. They look in unused condition
A good find last week: S&W 459 and S&W 4006. They look unused. This is my first stainless gun for over 60 years of shooting. Still don’t like them! - Album on Imgur

Is it just the color of stainless you don't like?

No. I do like collecting the 39's, 59's and their later generations but they never fit my hand good. Back in the 70's and 80's i was shooting Colt Government series 70, high power P35's and P-38's. The Glocks later on never fit me either but it didn't stop me. The other question when the stainless guns first came out they were a little soft and some galled. i have stayed away from them until now. The price was right. i have always stayed with the blue guns especially the high end polished ones. i still cannot post a single image only the whole album. i did it a few months ago but the program won't do it now

Here you go OP.



post this code in your original post.

Just replace "{" with "[" and "}" with "]".
