Unhappy

My bad - What I was asking about is actually titled "Shooting Range Instruction Chart," same as shown by ko41 at the very beginning of this thread, and black and white appears to be correct. Could anyone tell me what the dimensions should be for the originals, and anything else about them?

Eric58. Yes, only in black & white. There were two issued. The one in post 1 is the second issue. The first one does not have the .22 Semi auto or the 9mm. Mine do not have the red bands on the top and bottom. They can from the print shop before the bands were applied, so they are larger then the issued posters. They are 23-inches by 39- inches.

Thanks - The one I'm talking about does have the semi autos, but measures 26 x 20"?

It was cut down. If cheap, but it.

Thanks Club Gun Fan - This one looks just like ko41's, but has much wider (blank) margins on left and right sides.

Question

Does anyone else have the 2nd version of the "Shooting Range Instruction Chart," with wider margins right and left, in the 26 x 20" size? I ask because I thought mine was an original, and had plans to frame it for over my workbench. If it's a repro, I'll chuck it and find something S&W with more "provenance." Any additional info appreciated!!

Default Bummer!

Looks like the "Shooting Range Instruction Chart" poster I bought is a reproduction - caveat emptor I guess. I'll keep looking for a real one, or maybe a "38 Military and Police Revolver" poster? Would you folks school me on what I should expect to pay for either of these (an authentic example this time) in good condition?

It's been around 15 years and I am still looking for an early copy (prior to WW2) print of the Hostiles. Think I am going to call it at this point and give up...

There are several different versions and sizes of that poster.
What are you looking for?

With all things S&W there are a lot of fakes and fakers out there. Today's printers are capable of producing such great copies that one must be very careful. Don is the most knowledgeable person that I know when it comes to S&W memorabilia and I would suggest that before any of you invest more than $25 on something, run it by Don.

Who knows, he may even have the one that you are looking for that is extra to his needs.

I have had this one framed and hanging in my workshop for as long as I can remember - probably 45+ years. It is original (from my Dad) and I do use it when trying to explain a revolver's workings to someone new to them - a great visual aid.

Sorry about the ceiling light reflections, I tried a few different angles, but still got the reflection.
