Well, I bought one and am very happy with it. All those critics busting on S&W for making this are simply internet idiots. The size weight and balance are very similar to my 4" model 19. Accuracy with the acp was @4" at ten yards with the first 12 shots out of the gun. The federal 000 buck held a 6" pattern for each of the first 3 of these i tried. I only had some reloads in 45LC but they were good enough for defensive purposes. These were the first shots out of a new gun so I have a feeling things will get better with breakin and ammo testing. Fit and finish are excellent and the front night site is nice and compliments this as a nightstand gun. I cannot believe some of the comments about how only idiots and new shooters will buy into this hype and that this a mistake on the part of Smith. So far I have been impressed considering what this gun is. If I want to go squirrel hunting I'll take an Ithaca, if i want to shoot a match I'll take an M&P. For a fun gun to shoot shotshells this is much better than the Judges I've shot and a carjacker or home invader would be in serious trouble. Before you wet your pants getting all worked up about this new abomination I suggest you handle one first. The good news is there are lots of holsters already available so this little gem can ride with me in the woods.

Congrats on your new revolver! More guns is always a good thing one can never have enough. As for the Governor to each his own, enjoy!

Sorry no pics but it looks just like the photos on Smith's website. So far it is handeling most any factory hardball acp quite well. I got some factory long colts and those shot point of aim as well. I will do some more testing and report.
