I love my Model 19-3 4", it has the target hammer and trigger with the adj sights. Bill Jordan's favorite for many years. I have owned 2, this one is still 90 percent and helped a buddy qual for CCW last weekend. I carry it as backup during deer season.



My first pistol when I turned 21 was a 686 Distinguished Combat Magnum in 6". I think I shelled out $279.00 for it new. I carried it hunting for years and traded it off in the 90's for a sweet Model 7 bolt rifle in 6mm.



I am gonna buy the next 638 I come by. I have always wanted one.



If they really want to bring back a classic, I would like to see some of the early 19th century top breaks come out.



I run across a 3" model 13 a few years ago with a square butt and parkerized finish. It looked like a rugged little shooter. I should have picked it up.



A 625 has been on the list, I can toss my 45 reloads into it. One of the old Troopers would be great too. And I have been looking for a good used 22 lr revolver of S&W make.

I'd have to go with either a 42 or a 25. Different niches, but both classics imo.

I have a Mod.1955 Target .45ACP [N-frame; 6.5" barrel] revolver than I had gunsmithed in a brainless moment into a 4" 'combat revolver'. If I ever see another 1955 in its original form, I'm buying it!

Picked up a primo Model 19 last year. That, my Model 29 and 36 make a nicely diverse classic collection.

Already own it. A blue Model 36. Grip's a little small, but a Tyler T-Grip helps.

I have a S&W Model 13-14-15-36-66-629-642. The S&W Model 15 was my first centerfire pistol, given to me by my Grandfather when I was about 17, if I could only keep one, it would be that one due to the sentimental value.
